Hi, I’m at the Primer level, and because I am completely new to drumming, I learnt much during the 11-week module. More importantly, the lesson is injected with careful, curated scriptural inspiration that I receive weekly through the coach, besides the printed materials.
This is a powerful way of bringing myself to God in the learning of worship drumming. I am still wrestling with the basics while enjoying it. I will want to pick it up again in July.
Finally, I would like to thank Believer Music for giving me a free module to start off this interest.

Back in 2017, there was a sudden need of drummers at the church I am serving. As I've always dreamt to be able to play the drums, I saw it as an opportunity to pick up this instrument. However, being in my late 30s, I wasn't sure if I would make it. So I decided to sign up for the XPTrial Program to see if I was really up for it. After the first lesson, I felt so liberated being able to play a simple rhythm! I could only wish I had learned drums earlier! Before I knew it, 1 year 8 months has passed and I completed my last lesson in AWDIV yesterday. It was a bittersweet moment bidding goodbye to my classmates and Coach, knowing we won't be seeing each other at the same time, the same place next week onwards. Nonetheless, with the friendship we have forged with one another, we know we will definitely meet up again.
Our coach was very dedicated in his teaching. He understood well the strengths and weaknesses of his students and was able to creatively adjust the lessons to cater to the needs of individuals. He was also inspiring and encouraging and because of that, I was able to step forward and start serving in my church's worship band as a drummer, even though I had barely started classes for the WDII module.
One thing that sets Believer Music apart from other music schools is the sharing sessions and the studying of God's Word at the end of each lesson. It played a big part in helping me seek the Lord deeper and in understanding my calling/given purpose in life.
Now that I am done with the Drums program, I'm looking at exploring other instruments. And I will not hesitate recommending Believer Music to anyone who wants to pick up an instrument and wanting to find a deeper meaning to life.

I nearly missed out on the Believer Drum Program for this term. Thank God I didn't!
To cut the long story short, I had actually signed up for Contemporary Drums Level 2 but couldn't get the timeslot I wanted. I searched for alternatives but still couldn't find something that worked for me. In the end, I was kind of resigned and was prepping myself mentally to give up learning for this term and get a refund instead. Thank God for a front counter staff, who asked if I wanted to try the Believer Drum Program for the Sunday 3.30pm slot. He convinced me by assuring that the techniques taught would be the same, just that the songs would be different. After some rearrangements done to my schedule, I was able to sign up for it. Yay!
I must admit I had some reservations in going for the Believer Drum Program at first, as my interest in playing drums did not stem from a desire to worship God through drumming. However, playing worship songs on the drums has a strong ministering effect. I did not expect the Believer Drum Program to actually ignite my interest in playing worship songs on the drums. During the course of my learning, I found myself wanting to worship God more and wanting to explore more Christian songs that I can play on the drums. I must say that through prolonged exposure to the songs, I have a greater appreciation of musicianship in a worship setting and it has also helped me in worshipping God in a deeper manner.
I love learning and playing all the new rhythms! It is so much fun and so exciting when you master a new beat. It's also fun when I am able to identify the same rhythm in other songs and apply them across each other. My drum instructor is very attentive as he teaches, giving personalised attention when you cannot grasp a new beat. He makes sure that everyone in class is able to play and always checks on each individual. His explanations and breakdown of the rhythms does make learning a lot easier.
I am already looking forward to the next term! :) Thank you, Believer Music!
I had little knowledge about different beats eg, half fast groove, as well as having a limited amount of fills. I would like to thank my Drum Coach for helping me to understand more about drums as well as learn more about God along the way. The term has been a good time of my life!
I completed the Believer Drum Program (BDP) a year ago so this is a bit late but moving on to the point, I don't know why but Believer Music always have had this thing that propels learners to want to come for lessons.
Thinking back, I had to travel all the way to Singpost at Paya Lebar for drum lessons even though i stay in the west because One Commonwealth doesn't have a drum studio. I never felt tired of travelling on the peak hour train although it meant standing for 45 mins or so. The coach was very encouraging and cared and made sure that every student will leave the class knowing how to play. Fast forward, June 2016, I graduated from the BDP and joined my Church's Worship Team as a Drummer. After a few months I joined the Believer Guitar Program as I just couldn't stand the 'What Now?' feeling after graduating from the BDP. Another 9 months passed and I joined the Believer Cajon Program. People ask me, "Why a Thursday right after CCA?" I didn't have an answer until the first class. It recharged me to complete the week after 4 days of tiring and long school hours.
Moving forward, I would like to encourage everyone no matter if you have music background or not to join Believer Music if u want to pick up a new skill as the levels are crafted such that everyone can understand and master. I would like to also thank the coaches that has brought me thus far in my musical journey with Believer Music. To God be the Glory!
P.s. Once you start the lessons u can't stop :)

I really enjoyed the time spent learning the drums in Believer Music. I have been playing the drums for a period of time but I felt that I had gone into a rut. The levels in the Believer Drum Program are structured in a way that caters to your playing experience. I started with Advanced Worship Dynamics I, and I had not looked back since. Through the Lesson Discount Promo, I was able to get good value from the patient instruction of our drum coach, and with it a full-on experience with God through playing music that engages you with God's presence, coupled with good teaching on the biblical perspective of worship as we journeyed together with Israel and the early Church. I highly recommend the drum program by Believer Music as it developed in me a deeper appreciation of the bible narrative and as they say "the Heartbeat of Heaven!"

My Trinity Christian Centre church mate and I signed up together for Drums XP Trial and we were most blessed for the opportunity to discover the ability to worship God through rhythmic playing on the drums. Through patient and meticulous guidance under our respective drum coaches, we found that drumming could draw us into deeper worship in a more innovative way. Though we are taught specific rhythm styles for starters, when we immerse ourselves in worship, playing the drum allows us to worship God even more creatively as it comes with more than 50 different voices and styles. We are so inspired by our coaches that we will be signing up for classes after our vacation. Praise God for the chance to learn how to worship through the XP Trial and to know that even girls have the opportunity in learning drums.
It has been a fruitful journey learning drums till the last module! :) The lessons have been enriching for me and now, I am able to play a piece of music with some level of confidence.
Where I avail myself, God provides. I am grateful for God's provision to play in a small band setting for worship. I realize I could do so at a reasonable level although there is so much more to fine-tune when playing in a band. I hope to eventually play for church in a bigger setting.
The final 2 modules really helped me learn improvisations in playing, though there is still much for me to improve in this area through listening, observing and applying creatively.
I thank my coaches for imparting their skills and knowledge to us. Keep investing in your talents so others will use them for God's glory as well! To all Believer Music students, I encourage you to give the Drum Program a try! :) Lastly, I thank God for the friendships I have forged in my class while learning and receiving support in this community.

My drum coach is really kind and is very patient in teaching all of us. I have also made many nice friends at Believer Music. The staff are very friendly too, going out of the way to greet everyone that comes into the shop for lessons or to buy things. :)

I would like to share on how taking up drum lessons with Believer Music has
From the beginning of 2013 to Jul 2014, I experienced many major crises and
losses, including the passing away of my dad. I have never experienced so
many trials in my life before. I felt like Job in the bible. I felt greatly
distressed, without strength to carry on.
Eventually, the whirlwind of events subsided. God's grace saw me through and
I emerged stronger in my faith in Him. However, I still experienced a great
lingering sense of fatigue. So I sought the Lord for strength. He then
stirred within me a desire to take up drum classes at Believer Music.
Indeed, I find new strength through worshipping God with drums. Learning the
variety of rhythms creates a new heartbeat within me for God. I feel alive
within my spirit with this renewed passion in worshipping Him with drums!
I realized I have much potential, and desire to develop this talent to the
fullest potential in Christ. God also revealed to me the vision to serve Him
in music ministry in church one day. To achieve this, I have bought a set of
drums from Believer Music to practice alongside my lessons.
I thank God for my coach who facilitated my learning. He has much patience
for his students and would pace alongside with their learning. He does not
glaze over our mistakes but ensures that he corrects them in love. This
helps us to build our foundations well. Being very experienced and creative
in the way he plays, I learnt so much from him! He also motivates us by
introducing a little more than what is covered in our lesson plans. Coach,
continue to keep up the passion in coaching and may it continue to impact
I thank my God for sowing this seed within me to learn drums. It is
ultimately Him who causes this seed to grow into fruitfulness. Slowly but
All glory goes to God alone! :)

Who should sign up for this module? Am I eligible to sign up? You are eligible for this module if you have:
i) No knowledge of playing the drumset OR
ii) Wish to relearn the fundamentals of playing drums especially for rhythmic feel. This will help you to develop your playing further.
*Should you have prior playing experience, use the Online Course Allocator to identify the module most suitable for you.
Is there an age limit? We accept registrations from ages 8 and up. However, we strongly advise students aged 8-10yrs to meet with our coach to assess their suitability for the course. Call us at 6323 0304 to arrange an appointment.
We will also channel students to classes of compatible age groups whenever possible.
But I know nothing about music! This step-by-step course is designed for total beginners who have absolutely no prior knowledge in music or the drums. Individuals who attended other beginner courses but are still unable to play confidently and effectively are advised to join this Primer Module. What you are going to learn here is going to be fun, powerful and practical for worship application.
Why are electronic drum sets recommended? Electronic drum sets offer you the luxury of playing anytime of the day through the use of headphones. The drum pads on recommended sets (XM Drums) closely resemble the response touch of acoustic drum sets and does not require tuning. The sound module emulates the different drum kit sounds suited for different types of music genre (trance, rock, jazz, acoustic etc.). It also comes with a USB connector that enables you to save your own kit sound configurations and record your playing. Overall, the electronic drum set is highly practical for home practice.
What can I expect to learn? You will be equipped to understand fundamental music theory for reading musical drum scores. This will eventually lead to documenting your very own rhythmic patterns. Playing along with the backing tracks every week will offer essential experience of playing in a band, while developing a firm rhythmic feel along with a consistent tempo.
Is it FUN? You'll get to meet people who share the same passion. Learning to play a musical instrument is highly rewarding because it leads to growth in a music-spiritual dimension. Learning to play the drums is more than fun. It's life changing. We all know of people around us whom we think have successfully learnt to play the drums reasonably well. With practice, this skill will stay and enrich not only your lives but also the lives of people and family around you (and generations to come). For many of us who are just starting to pick up this unique skill, believe that the journey is well worth it.
I am a Music/Church pastor; I'd like to include a subsidy for my members. We make it possible for you to track whoever signs up for the course and even include a subsidy appropriation. Are you interested in equipping and mobilizing the cells under your care in regards to worship? Please contact us for an appointment. We'd like to share with you how this drums program can mobilize your cell ministry members and raise the level of worship involvement.
