Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
This course is all centered around the art and practice of playing the ever so fun and ubiquitous, drum set.
In it, you will learn and practice coordination exercises taught from some of the best in the world along with explore the ever-so-rewarding skill and gift of how to listen to and practice your groove. There will be discussions geared towards helping to hape the way you play and listen to the ensemble. Accompanying lessons, you will receive progressively more advanced play-alongs. These are songs catered to bring out your current playing skills and show you the path to the next level. They are meant to be forever relevant to your drumming and are not meant to be easy but are guaranteed to be fun.
Students will also learn how to incorporate electronics into ones drum kit, as more and more contemporary acts are doing. They also will learn how to experiment with drum set-ups and playing styles.

Along with learning to play like the champ you are, you will also be taught about protecting your ears and signs of ear-mistreatment. If the student is interested in playing drums long term, it is encouraged that the student invests in professionally made fitted ear-plugs and/or drumming headphones. This will be discussed to the student and the student's guardian immediately following the first lesson.

These lessons cater to many different styles- from jazz, to funk-fusion to rock and even contemporary metal and including pop/top 40, electronic influenced (drum and bass, dub step, etc). It is a fun and exciting course meant for any and everyone from beginners to advanced players.
