1. How long have you been learning drums and music production at Jenca?

Over three years.

Both teachers are great and very patient;  I learn drums with Jason who is a very experienced drummer and I’m enjoying going through my Rockschool grade exams with his help.

I also study music production with Olly, this is really interesting as it teaches you absolutely everything you need to know about how music is produced.

On drums, I’m currently working on “Smooth” the well-known Santana hit.

In music production, we are working towards achieving my grade 4 music production exam.

The  Arctic Monkeys.

I’m enjoying listening to all the Christmas music at the moment. Just as well as it’s playing everywhere you go!
