Traditional drumset study for Youth through Adults
Students advance in several areas of percussion studies (standard, jazz, Latin, etc) with attention and reinforcement of basic concepts such as rudiments, sight-reading, ear training, and improvisation. Snare and drum kit instruction are available.
Recommended Session Duration:
Youth – 30/45 minutes; Teenage and Adult – 45/60 minutes
Age to begin Drum lessons:
The appropriate age for starting drum lessons can vary greatly from student to student; generally student age ranges from elementary age through adult.
Students are able to begin lessons with a practice pad before purchasing or renting a drum kit. A pair of drumsticks and a practice pad may be purchased through our Academy office or at a local music store. As they learn more about pattern basics/rudiments and stick technique, students may choose to move to a drum set. Some students will also begin lessons on drum kit.
