Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need a full-drum-kit to start this course? Or can I start with a drum pad and sticks?
You don't need drums to begin! We recommend using drum sticks and a pad - links are available on the membership site. We recommend using an electronic kit or a practice-kit (they are almost 'silent').
Are refunds available if I'm not happy with the course?
Yes! We offer a 30 day guarantee and we would never want you to be unhappy with this service. We're proud of our exemplary service and believe you and all participants will love it!
What's the vision for drum united and positive mindful drumming?
We are a Community Interest Company ~ we use any additional revenue (otherwise known as 'profit') to operate our SOCIAL EMPOWERING PROJECTS with young adults, helping develop their positive mindset and offer them opportunities to facilitate positive mindful drumming in their community.
