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 begging to experience how fun and exciting it is.

Beyond the Books

Our instructors go far beyond the nuts and bolts of drumming like 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.
