DRUM LESSONS F.A.Q.
ARE DRUM LESSONS ONE-ON-ONE?
Yes, all of our drum lessons are private one-on-one lessons with a qualified instructor.
HOW LONG ARE DRUM LESSONS?
Our Music Foundations and Artist Development monthly-based lesson programs offer 30-minute, 45-minute, and 60-minute lessons. Our Adult Lesson Packages for students 18+ are offered in 45-minute and 60-minute lessons. Recommended lesson lengths will vary depending on the student’s age, ability, and level of commitment.
WHAT IS THE BEST AGE TO START DRUM LESSONS?
While it is difficult to specify exactly what age is best to start drum lessons, students under the age of 5 typically do not exhibit the patience and coordination necessary to be successful learning to play drums. In some cases, students younger than 5 can do well, however this is rather uncommon and really depends on the student’s personality and level of maturity.
DO YOU TEACH ADULTS?
Yes, and it is never too late to learn to play bass guitar! Students 18+ can enroll in our Music Foundations or Artist Development monthly-based lesson programs or purchase one of our Adult Lesson Package options. Adult Lesson Packages are available as 45-minute or 60-minute lessons and offered in packs of 5 or 10 lessons.
IS THERE A MINIMUM COMMITMENT?
Yes. Learning any instrument requires perseverance and dedication, particularly when just starting out. Because of this we require a 3-month upfront commitment for students enrolling in our Music Foundations and Artist Development programs. Following that initial commitment lessons are billed on a monthly basis. Students 18+ purchasing one of our Adult Lesson Packages are required to commit upfront for the number of lessons in that package.
DO I NEED TO OWN A DRUM SET TO TAKE LESSONS?
Not immediately, however after the first few lessons we will require that you have a drum set available for practicing at home. We have a wide selection of drum sets available to rent or purchase along with quiet electronic drum sets which can be played with headphones. Our instructors are available to help you select an appropriate instrument.
HOW OFTEN ARE DRUM LESSONS?
Drum lessons are once a week for those enrolled in our Music Foundations and Artist Development monthly-based lesson programs and lessons are scheduled on the same day and time of each week. Our Adult Lesson Packages generally offer a little more scheduling flexibility to accommodate work and life commitments.
DO YOU COME TO MY HOME TO TEACH LESSONS?
We believe the best student experience comes from in-person lessons at our state-of-the-art facility. However, if you prefer to take lessons from the comfort of your own home or you are not located within driving distance of our facility, we offer a highly interactive remote lesson experience online.
WHICH PROGRAM IS BEST FOR BEGINNERS?
Our Music Foundations monthly-based lesson program is designed for beginning students of all ages. This program focuses on learning the fundamentals of music and building a foundation of proper technique, performance, and music theory. Our Adult Lesson Packages are for students 18+ and cover all skill levels from beginner to advanced.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO LEARN TO PLAY THE DRUMS?
Like many things, learning the drums is a lifelong endeavor. How fast a student learns varies widely and depends on the individual’s age, aptitude, practice routine, and level of commitment. Highly dedicated students can often achieve basic proficiency in as little as 6 months and reach advanced levels within a few years.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PRACTICE?
To maximize results, we recommend practicing for 30 minutes every day. We understand sometimes that isn’t always possible, but experience shows that even practicing for as little as 10 minutes a day helps maintain forward progress learning to play the drums.
HOW DO I JOIN A STUDENT BAND?
Our Student Band program is one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences we offer. It is an excellent opportunity for students to apply the concepts and material covered in lessons to a collaborative and performance based environment. Because a basic level of proficiency is required to play in a band, this program is only available to students enrolled in our Artist Development monthly-based lesson program.
