Drum Lessons

We offer drum lessons for all skill levels. Drum students learn how to play beats, drum fills, and rudiments. As students progress, they begin to expand their musical knowledge beyond rock into the world of jazz, reggae, and Latin rhythms.

All drum students learn how to read standard rhythmic notation. We have one of the most professional drum lesson rooms in St. Louis, with a state of the art sound proofing an electric and acoustic drum set.  Our drum instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues and many other styles. Drum language is complex, yet our instructors find fun ways to challenge any drummer with a wide variety of technical exercises designed to improve your speed and comfort. All drummers should bring in their favorite drum parts to learn in their lessons. You do not have to purchase a drum kit to take drum lessons. Beginning students can learn with a drum pad and sticks for only $25. Students use our drum set at their lessons and do not have to bring anything except their drum sticks, drum method book, and lesson notebook.

Learning to play the drums is something that is enjoyable and therapeutic for students of all ages. The drums are the heart of a music group, and they are responsible for keeping the tempo of a song. Teaching children to play the drums from an early age provides them with a number of benefits. It helps with both physical and mental development, building real life skills they will use for the rest of their lives.
