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 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 children start drum lessons at age 7 or 8. The drums require increased physicality in the hands and fingers, so a younger student may find drumming very difficult. Students studying on a drum kit should be able to reach the pedals of the drums.
