A drum kit usually includes a high hat, crash, ride cymbal, and a pair of drum sticks. If you are taking another style of drumming, you may purchase a snare, bongos, conga, or djembe. Most students will also purchase a drum practice pad at a music store, which is a portable way to practice the beats and techniques of drumming.
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.
Teachers will focus on learning rhythms, drum patterns, hitting techniques and will help expose the student to various types of drumming styles. You will be recommended various types of drumming method books which will help your child improve and notice progress on the instrument.
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.
Most children should begin drum lessons at around 7 or 8 years old. The drums are a very physical isntrument and require a lot of dexterity on the part of the player. Drum students who are learning on a full drum kit should be big enough to reach the pedals, and should be physical enough to use their arms and hands for extended periods of time.
