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.
In home lessons are a great choice for busy families and students. The only thing neccesary for in home lessons is the instrument! Our teachers travel to students homes usually once a week for lessons. Students can practice their drums every day to notice the most progress.
Drum lessons will cover drumming techniques, learning to read music, and music theory. Our teachers will suggest specific method books for the student to use during their drum lessons.
We love adult students! We have adults who are complete beginners, some who haven't played their instrument in 10 years, and some who are more advanced students looking to take their skills to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to ge t you the results you desire.
We suggest students start drum lessons at age 7 or 8. The drums are a very physical instrument, requiring long periods of dexterity in the hands and fingers. A drum student learning from a drum kit should be able to reach the pedals on the drums.
