You can start with any musical style, and then move on to any other style.

Progression Overview chart

Drums for Schools class teaching sets can form the backbone of your progression strategy. Each set includes enough resources for 5-6 terms of learning, and by adding all the different styles you’ll have enough material for a 5 year progression. 

The instruments and teaching resources in each set provide opportunities for all three types of musical progression: linear, depth and breadth. An incremental approch allows pupils to gradually take on more complex tasks, deepen their technical and musical skill, and transfer these skills across a broad range of musical styles.
