    So, you’ve started taking drum lessons – hopefully with Rhythm House if you’re in Singapore – and you’ve decided it’s time to buy your first drum kit.

  • The Cult – She Sells Sanctuary – Trinity Rock & Pop Grade 2 Drums

    She Sells Sanctuary by the Cult is now part of the Trinity Rock & Pop Grade 2 Drums syllabus. Here’s my attempt at it: Let’s Rock! This is a fairly straight ahead rock song, the key thing in performing this song is to get the feel correct. It’s time to hit hard. The bass and […]

  • The Specials – Ghost Town – Trinity Rock & Pop Grade 6

    What’s so special about this song? Well… it’s about my home town: Coventry, England.

  • The Beatles – Here Comes The Sun – Trinity Rock & Pop Grade 5

    Here comes a video of me playing Here Comes The Sun by The Beatles from the Trinity Rock & Pop Grade 5 Syllabus. This is one of the Beatles most well known songs & is surprisingly complex. On the surface it sounds like a nice simple tune but underneath that simple sounding melody there are […]
