Our drum instructors live and breathe drums and are ready to help you develop the skills to learn how to play quickly! All of our lessons are taught by talented instructors with years of performing experience.

Together, you will develop a plan to achieve your goals! We love beginners, so even if you don’t know where to begin, we can help!


Our drum instructors are highly qualified, all have teaching experience, and most importantly, they have a passion for teaching. Being a musician doesn’t automatically make you a great teacher. That’s why we search for and train those who are best qualified for mentoring our music students!

There is no set answer of how long it takes to learn to play. With regular practice a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long-term basis because they want to be constantly improving, and they find the lessons enjoyable.


Yes. Even if you don’t have a musical background you can ask your teacher and staff for advice on how to help your child practice. By simply monitoring that they are doing exercises a certain number of times per day the student will progress. Parents will occasionally sit in on their child’s music lesson to get an idea of the proper way a song should sound or how the student should be positioning their hands.
