AJW Drum Academy has a minimum age requirement when enrolling new students.  All students must be at least eight [8] years of age and in Year 3 (of school) in order to take drum lessons.

There are a few reasons for this requirement;

  1. The Academy uses Adult sized drum equipment
  2. From previous experience, AJW Drum Academy believes that students below the age of eight [8] do not have the coordination and concentration developed enough to fully benefit from lessons
