Typical drum kits usually come with a high hat, crash, ride cymbal, and a pair of drum sticks. Students who are studying other types of drumming can us a snare drum, bongos, conga, or djembe for their lessons. Another option for the beginning level player is purchase a drum practice pad, which are found at almost every music store.

Adult drum lessons are tailor made for your own needs and skill level. We have many adult students taking drum lessons for the first time. Drums will help you increase your level of coordination and help you achieve your musical goals on drumming.
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.
