Bob Roos Drum Lessons

Drum Lessons Utrecht

Playing the drums is fun! You can quickly learn a groove or break and it feels amazing to sit behind such a massive instrument. Looking for a Utrecht based drum teacher for your child or for yourself? Want to pick up drumming lessons after a break or polish your drumming and learn to play with more ease?

Experienced Drum Teacher

My name is Bob Roos. I’m an enthusiastic, friendly and devoted drum teacher in Utrecht. I've been playing the drums for almost 25 years and to me it is still an awsome thing to do! Always new rhythms and fills to try out – it really is the gift that keeps on giving.

If it’s your first time behind a drum kit or you’ve only followed a few YouTube lessons, I will teach you step by step how to play the drums. First of all you’ll learn how to hold your sticks.

Pop, Rock, Funk, Jazz and Latin

Personally, I think the most important thing is that you learn to play the drums in the style that appeals to you the most! I can teach pop, rock, funk, jazz and Latin drumming. I can cover just about any style desired.

It’s all about the Music

I gear my lessons as much as possible towards the music that you love. Drums are the number one accompaniment instrument and playing with other musicians is fun! So during the lessons we’ll play with music from CDs and play-along tracks from your smartphone. I will give you the drumming exercises you might need to play along like a pro.

Playing with a Band

At least once a year I organise an afternoon where all my students get to play with a real band on stage. In the weeks running up to the show we will study the song you have chosen to play. You will be ready for the show and you will love how amazing it feels to play in a real band!

Drum Studio

My fully equiped drum studio is located at the Oudegracht in the center of Utrecht. You can easily get there by bicycle, car or bus.

Flexibility - Lesson Package

You can take lessons of 30 minutes, 45 minutes or an hour. The 10-lesson package means flexibility for both you and me!

Looking for a Drum Kit?

Would you like to start learning the drums but don’t have a drum kit yet? Are you looking for an acoustic or electric drum kit but have no idea what you should look for? No problem, I can help you find a good-quality and affordable drum kit!

About Bob

After starting with the cello I decided to switch to drums when I was 14 years old. I liked this so much that I quickly decided I wanted to become a professional drummer. I graduated in 2005 from the jazz department of the Rotterdam Conservatory Codarts. I regularly play with a variety of groups both home and abroad. In 2012 I founded my own drum school where I continue, with great pleasure, to teach drummers of all ages.
