Get to know Romeer

My name is Romeer Gopee. I am a drummer, producer and mixing engineer based in Pretoria, South Africa. I have been playing drums for 10 years and play for several local bands. I am currently the drummer for guitar virtuoso and vocal phenom , Stephen Jonathan.

Students will receive an individual practice routine based on their skills and what each individual wants out of the instrument.
Lessons are taught with an emphasis on three core concepts. Playing clean, playing in time & having the ability to improvise.
In addition, the history of the instrument will be studied and auxiliary drum concepts such as tuning, sound choice, studio and live drumming will be explored.

I look forward in engaging with you and to help you grow on this beautiful instrument in order to become a well rounded musician.
