Most student's would ideally start with a 5 piece drum kit complete in addition to a high-hat, crash, and ride cymbal, but any student can start with as little as a drum practice pad and a pair of drum sticks. A student can learn to read and play rhythms using both hands using any type of drum, including snare, bongos, conga, or djembe.
In home drum lessons are a convenient option for improving your musical skills. In home lessons are virtually the same in every aspect as lessons taught in a studio. Lessons are taught once a week and significant progress can be made in a short time. Our teachers will suggest that students practice every day for the best results.
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.
Drum lessons are a wonderful way to learn a new skill as an adult. Many of our adult drum students have never played the drums before, and they remark about just how fun it is! Our adult drum lessons are tailor made for you skill level and desired musical style.
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.
