Over the past decade the electronic drumkit has become more popular for professional and beginner drummers alike. One of the biggest area’s where the electronic drumkit has grown in popularity is in the field of Education. Because of this, the Blouberg International School has recently invested in two Roland TD-11 V-Drum Kits.

One of the biggest advantages for using electronic drumkits for music lessons is the reduced noise pollution. When you think about drums and drumming, “quiet” is seldom a thought that comes to mind.
Because of how loud drumkits tend to be, learning drums can often be a disruptive instrument. Traditionally, a drummer in a school environment is would be limited to practising at certain times when noise can go unnoticed. To that end, drummers would often not be allowed to have lessons during exam periods.
Electronic drum kits do not suffer from this problem. Assuming that the student is playing with headphones, the most noise an electronic drumkit makes is a dull thud.
Not only does this mean that students can have lessons and practice throughout the course of the day, it also means that exam schedules will not conflict with the need to practice. In addition, it also means that two drummers can sit in the same room and practice on their own kit without disrupting each other.
Furthermore, the Roland TD-11 V-Drum Kits can also be used for live performances. In order to use the drumkit live, all you need to do it line the audio of the drumkit out to a PA system. So, the tow kits what were bought can be used for multiple purposes, making them an incredibly versatile options for school and professional drummers alike.
