Beginner Drum Lessons

Dekalb School of Music offers simple yet effective drum lessons for beginners that bypass entry-level pad training. Students get behind a drum kit during their first lesson to start learning how to play the drums. Through private drum lessons, live performances, and maybe some group rehearsals students will learn introductory rudiments to drum fills and solos. Our core philosophy is that the best way for students to gain musical proficiency is through performance-based music education. All of our programs include a performance aspect.

Intermediate to Advanced Drum Lessons

When a student progresses beyond beginner drum lessons, they will move to our intermediate/advanced drum lessons programs putting them on the path to mastery. During weekly private lessons and group rehearsals, our expert drum teachers guide students through advanced drumming techniques and training methods aimed at making them more skilled drummers. Advanced intermediary grooves, shifts and meters are taught and drilled until they are perfected.
