Purchasing a drum kit can be a significant investment. Drum kits will start at around $500 and will usually include, a high hat, crash, ride cymbal, and a pair fo drum sticks. Our teachers can also teach drum lessons on snare drum. bongos, conga, or djembe. Most students will also be required to purchase a drum practice pad for practicing their beats on the go.
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.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student. Topics covered during Musika's drum lessons may include, but are not limited to: how to hold drum sticks, traditional or matched grip, where to strike the drums and cymbals, how to read music, including rhythms and drum/percussion notation, how to assemble a drum kit, and how to change and tune drum heads, drum rudiments; both traditional and modern marching band rudiments, music theory, basic form and analysis, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the drums!
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.
