Drum Lessons

Want to learn drums? How this works:

Students are drawn to playing drums because it’s FUN! Parents are nervous because drums are LOUD! The good news is that most students can start lessons with just a basic practice pad and drum sticks. We offer beginning drum classes for ages 7 – 13 and private lessons for all ages beginning through advanced levels. Which option would be best for your student? Students will learn the basics of rhythm and be able to practice at home before committing to the purchase of a drum set. Once you’re ready to purchase a kit, you can choose acoustic or electric, which will allow the student to practice with headphones. After you begin lessons, just ask your teacher about which kit is right for you!

Drum students greatly benefit from a few years of piano lessons first, but we don’t require it. Students are usually around age 10 when they can comfortably take drum lessons, but younger students can be successful, too, so just ask us when you contact us, and we will help you make the right decision!

We care about your musical interests

Loving the music you play is essential to a good drum learning experience. That is why our teachers will always strive to help you learn the style and types of music you love to make the music come alive in your lessons and practice.  And if you don’t have one style or type of drum music you love, our teachers will help you discover it!

Good technique starts here

While emphasizing the style of music you love is important, good technique is vital to success playing drums. We will always work to make sure that all of our guitar students are not only enjoying their lessons, but learning the “right” way so they can be a successful drummer the rest of their life.

High quality drum teachers
