From basic hand and foot technique to proper drum set positioning to the most complex grooves – our first-class instructors offer comprehensive drum lessons in a fun and safe environment. As students learn how to play their favorite songs, they’ll work on coordination, snare drum technique, feel, dynamics and make their way through everything from rock to blues to hip hop to jazz and more.
Beginner drum lessons give students the opportunity to get behind the drum kit and learn basic techniques, get comfortable playing the full drum set, work on fills and solos, and work their way up to playing along with their favorite songs.
Building on the foundations of technique and rhythm, intermediate and advanced lessons will help students play more complicated grooves, work on their speed and precision, refine their pocket and take their skills to the next level.
