Beginner Drum Lessons

For our beginner students, we focus on the basics of rhythm, groove, and correct form. We place students immediately behind a high-quality drum kit so that they can experiment hands-on. Take a private lesson or join a weekly rock band to learn the ropes!

Intermediate and Advanced Lessons

When our students progress past the beginner stages, they will move into intermediate-level drum classes. This step is where students learn advanced drumming techniques and master their favorite songs.

Through private lessons or group sessions, our expert teachers guide players every step of the way until they can carry a beat on their own effortlessly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Attentive and up. (age 5+)

Yes! But we ask for some flexibility on this as we may need to rearrange to a new teacher if the switch of instruments are not one your current teacher is knowledgeable in. A 30-day notice is required for a switch like this.

If you have a poster to share with us we will sometimes put them up on our windows!

It is strongly recommended for any instrument you wish to take lessons in to have that same instrument available to you at home to practice! That being said, we house drumsets & keyboards here at our school for students taking lessons on those instruments; on all other instruments students are required to bring their own.
