One Year “Professional Training”:
The curriculum of the Professional Training includes “classic” drum tuition as well as studio and band performance training, drums and electronics, drum progamming, bass and step dance courses and finally lessons on posture (Alexander Technique). Furthermore, there are special coachings on self-marketing and contract law. We will use modern learning methods such as e-learning and mobile learning using notebooks. The course is divided into four quarters with up to 10 lessons a week (single and group tuition). After passing the final exam every student will receive a certificate.
