Learn By Doing
Our approach to drum lessons is all about getting students to start playing drums from day one! It doesn’t always mean playing full-blown grooves or beats but depending on the student’s age we like to get them to start actually experiencing what it feels like to hit the drums and begin to experience how fun and exciting it is.
Beyond the Books
Our instructors go far beyond the nuts and bolts of drumming such as notes, rudiments, and patterns. We do make fundamentals the anchor of all of our lessons but we also make sure we give the students time to actually apply it to the drum set and learn about the fun of making music and playing drums!

We Know How to Make Learning Fun For ALL
Our drum instructors are hired based on many criteria and one of which is their ability to teach all levels and types of students. Drum lessons should be accessible to all but not everyone will respond to each teaching approach the same. That’s why we make sure our drum instructors tailor their lesson to the student and make sure that the primary goals of each student are met no matter what age they are, what level they are at or what style they are trying to learn.
Here are a few things you need to get started
The most common misconception is that you need a drum set to get started with drum lessons. The answer is NO! You can start by just get a simple practice pad or even just a pair of sticks and see if you like drum lessons enough to then commit to getting a drum set.
The first and main thing we ask is that you start your drum lesson journey by coming ready to have fun.
Next we want you to bring any and all questions you might have about taking drum lessons.
Lastly, we want you to give yourself time to learn at your own pace because everyone learns at a different pace.
