Drums, in modern popular music represents the back beat of the music. The drummer has a crucial responsibility to keep perfect time within the group. Even though they typically sit in the back their role in the group is vital. Many drummers relish the role of being responsible for the rhythm and timing for the group. We offer a wide variety of drum lessons or percussion lessons. Most of our students learn on a drum kit. We have both male and female students and typically do not start drum lessons before age 8 as students need to be able to reach both the pedal and the high hat. We do have some younger students but suggest they come in for a trial drum lesson to see if they are big enough to get started. Drum lessons are taught on a drum kit in our studios but students are able to get started practicing at home on practice pads before purchasing or renting a drum kit. Our drum lessons stress proper technique so students become good drummers quickly. Online lessons can make great supplementary material for students but won’t take the place of a live human instructor.
