Students are responsible to book their own hotel rooms. We’ll offer a shuttle to-and-from the Sandman Hotel for all Drumeo VIP activities. Drumeo has secured a special rate at the Sandman Hotel & Suites for $99 CDN per night. You can get this rate by mentioning “Drumeo” when booking by calling: (604) 556-7263. Students who do not stay at the Sandman hotel will be responsible to find their way to and from Drumeo HQ throughout the duration of the week.
There is a grocery store right across the street from the hotel, as well as many different restaurants. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at the Drumeo HQ each day.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Should I get a rental car?
A: There is no need to rent a car, unless you would like to travel to different places in the evenings after the sessions. The lessons will go late quite often so we don’t recommend renting.
Q: I just started drumming, would this event work for me?
A: Yes, both drum weeks will benefit drummers of all skill levels.
Q: How long does the session last every day?
A: The main teaching sessions will go from 9:00am - 5:00pm. After that, we are going to have jam sessions, do live streams so the community can see you play on the Drumeo kit, and have dinner together for those that want to. So we would expect each evening to go to around 9:00pm - 10:00pm.
Q: I am below the 19 year old age limit, why can’t I come?
A: If you are below the age limit, but would like to participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to chat more about this.
Q: What will I eat when I am there?
A: Every day, breakfast and lunch will be provided at the Drumeo HQ. After the daily session, you can arrange a dinner with other students at Moxies (right near hotel), go for sushi (also near the hotel), or purchase groceries.
Q: Will I have one-on-one time with the instructors?
A: Yes, each student will get at least one session with a Drumeo instructor.
Q: Why do you only accept 10 students at a time?
A: We want to keep the experience as personal as possible and give each student lots of one-on-one time.
