Drumming Lessons



Learn to play the drums with Colin Usher
A one hour class or a season of lessons at Studio Faire in Nérac.

Colin teaches you all of the basics from how to hold your sticks, sitting and playing position, what all of the drums are called and what they are used for as well as getting on to learning the rhythms and beats.

You will be hitting the drums with confidence and style within minutes.

Colin has played in and toured with many indie rock bands for over 20 years as well as having been leading drummer in a pipe band. 

Colin want’s you to be playing along to your favourite songs as soon as possible, so these lessons are tailored for instant impact and are not set in the old fashioned, laborious text book style of teaching. Rudiments will be taught too of course but getting stuck in and making some noise is priority. 

Colin is a ROCK drummer but can work with many styles so the course can cover everything from AC/DC to OASIS, ELBOW to EMINEM or even the likes of BEYONCE.


Classes are: 25,00€ per hour
Includes soft drinks / tea & coffee.

If you have your own sticks, you can bring them but we have plenty to use here at the studio.

Class size is usually 1 to 1 but Colin would be happy to teach small groups.

The course is based in English but, for French students, French will be attempted.

Here’s a short clip of Colin playing his kit featuring wee Dougie.
