Elite Drums

BMS Academy is proud to introduce their Elite program – for musicians ready to advance beyond Grade 6 exam equivalent to university preparation and above. Our Elite drum teacher, Kyle Kirkpatrick! Kyle is a percussionist and electronic musician from Seattle, Washington, USA. Using helpful notation templates, electronic sequencers, and beatboxing drum patterns he breaks down tough concepts into bite-size bits.  He has vast Drum and technical sound knowledge to pass on to his students.

Children under 8:


For children under the age of eight, we recommend they start their musical journey with our Encore Group Piano Classes, which are specially designed to teach children in the same way they learn language. This introduces music to children with piano as the instrument. Once they have developed musical skills, it is easier for them to learn another instrument, like the drums.
