Standard pieces of a drum kit include the high hat, crash, ride cymbal, and drum sticks. If a student is at the very beginning stages of their learning, they can also start with basic drum practice pad. Other drums taught are the snare, bongos, conga, or djembe.
Drum lessons in your home are a very convenient option for many students. Students would need to have an instrument available for their lessons in home. Our teachers can instruct lessons in home, usually once a week, and students can notice significant progress in just a few short weeks of lessons.
Drum lessons will focus on learning to read music, rhythms, patterns, and the specific drumming techniques relevant to your musical styles and goals. Most teachers suggest specific drum method books for students to use during their lessons.
Adult drum lessons are a great way to learn a new skill, or perfect your drumming. Our adult students notice significant progress in a very short time, and have fun in the process! The lessons are structured to work with your skill level and musical goals in mind.
We suggest children start drum lessons at age 7 or 8. The drums require increased physicality in the hands and fingers, so a younger student may find drumming very difficult. Students studying on a drum kit should be able to reach the pedals of the drums.
