Looking for Drumset/ Tutor

Postby Chris_Austria » Tue, 26 Jul 2005 10:21 am

I really start missing my drumset! I ve been here for 3 weeks now, and although I practice every day on a practice pad, I really think that I need a real drumset in order to develop...

so, is there anyone in this forum who has a drumset and is willing to let me play on it approximately 3 days a week? I pay for that!

in addition, anyone interested in giving me some lessons in playing drums? I ve been playing for 6 months now (approximately 2-3 hours a day), and I need to practice with someone..

cheers,

Christoph

Thanks for your reply.

My mailservice tells me that it can't deliver an email to your email adress (and yes, I added the missing @)... is it correct? Or can I just call you?

cheers,

Christoph

Hi megha,
I am a female music lover. Playing drumset is a cool idea for me to make my life in singapore more interesting. would like to take some courses. my only concern is though i have very good sense of music, i am a totally beginner of playing drumset. may i know if there is any beginner class and what abt the course rate?
cheers!

Hi

I am still looking for an appropriate drum studio... the one that megha mentioned is unfortunately a little bit too far away. I am looking for something near to the center (I live at River Valley Road). It's essential that the drumset is in good condition (was at a studio near my place, but the drumset was unbearable due to its bad condition)

so, if anyone of u knows where I could go, please tell me. That'd be wonderful.

Thanks,

Christoph

Hi there Chris,

Good to know that you can play the drums..i am very much interested in forming a band and if you are interested then we can get together to jam..no need to be a pro cos my guitarist is also an amatuer.
Also we jam sometime at this Blackisle Studios in Aljunied.they ahve a good drumset and also the rent is $10 an hour.
So if you interested then email me at drdeadx@yahoo.com

later

The Yamaha Music School in Plaza Singapura hires out studios and drumsets, acoustic or electric, very professional set up, you might want to try there .......

thanks for that information... I have been there shortly and noticed that too... but I guess they are going to charge much... I will check it out.

Unfortunately, the studio that Kash recommended me is also not close to my flat... so it is no option for me (I work a lot, and don't have the time to go to a studio that is far from my flat at River Valley Road)

So, if any of you has other recommendations, please post it here or send me a PM

Thanks,

Christoph
