Learn music production with Planet drum
COMING SOON...We have been working hard and had tremendous fun to curate and bring you a Planet drum music production course following the Rockschool Grade 1 syllabus!
In this graded course we will guide you through the essentials of becoming a music producer, including learning how to record, edit and mix. We designed this course to be highly accessible for younger students and beginner students to pursue music production from their own homes and gain an RSL qualification in the process.
The Grade 1 course will provide you with the necessary material needed to understand music production terminology as well as audio fundamentals. You will be able to progress and learn at your own pace while practicing on the digital audio workstation of your choice.
We will also guide you through your coursework and give you practice questions so that by the end of this first course you will be confident and ready to pass your grade 1 Rockschool music production exam.

It’s all too easy to get bogged down in music theory and lesson material when you’re doing your grades.
And when you’ve managed to somehow successfully make it through one grade, you start work on the next one only to find it all gets even harder, more complex and in time signatures you never knew were possible.
At times you wonder how you’re ever going to fit all this new information in your head, and when your limbs will be able to naturally jump into action to play these complex rhythms without having to “think about it” for ten minutes.
Every drummer has their own way of learning. Some like to be very rigid with their practice sessions, some are determine to play the same rudiment over and over for an hour until it becomes muscle memory, and others find short bursts of multiple exercises work best.
Whatever way you prefer, I’m sure you’ve had a moment here are there where you’ve hit a wall and felt like you’ll never be able to play the piece of music sitting in front of you well enough to pass your grade.
I’ve had it plenty of times, and I’ve come to accept that I probably always will. But I’ve recently found that the best way I can help myself get past that barrier is to take a little time out to just have fun.
You’re playing the drums because you want to. You decided to have lessons because you enjoy playing the instrument – that's what I remind myself of.
There are many moments I can think back to where I sat down at a kit and just had an amazing time playing. But sometimes, when you’re too focused on learning, you forget to spend time just enjoying the act of drumming.
It sounds incredibly obvious, but in between work, home life and your lessons, it can sometimes be far too easy to slip into the habit of only finding time for drumming when you’re practicing for your grades or your next lesson.
Personally, I stick on a couple of my favourite tracks from when I first started playing the drums and pretend I’m 17 again!
