Are You Interested in Learning to Play the Drums?

Learning to use a musical instrument is one of the most exciting things about being alive. Life is always sweeter with good music. If you want to learn to play the drums, you may benefit from some help from a Drum Tutor.

However, there are several other alternatives to getting a private tutor. Here are options you can choose from:


Do it yourself

Of course, strictly speaking, tuition isn’t entirely necessary, and it’s certainly not a legal requirement to playing the drums!

There are examples in the history of famous drummers that received little tuition. They were or claimed to be largely self-taught.

However, if you’re sitting there looking at a pair of drumsticks and wondering why you can’t seem to get much out of them, well, perhaps it’s time to acknowledge that you need help!


Small groups

You may have a few friends you would like to learn the drums together with. Why not have a group class with them? You can book a private drum tutor for all of you! You may find the atmosphere a little less demanding as you can share your experiences (and laugh about your errors!).

Go for professional tuition

The idea of getting professional tuition to help learn the drums may seem like a good one. Still, you may be concerned about the cost and logistics – such as location and numbers, etc.

There is no sense in crippling yourself with the fear of costs when you can make inquiries and get a quotation. Why not use the CONTACT US page and get a special custom quote that suits your requirements?

Private music tuition is no longer the exclusive preserve of the wealthy as it was in past generations. You may be pleasantly surprised at just how affordable it is.

Location is also typically unlikely to be a problem.

Private tuition in your home is often possible. If that’s not entirely convenient, tuition can be arranged at other locations to suit you and your tutor.

Not just for beginners

It may be that you’re already a reasonably accomplished musician and are just seeking to enhance your skills or get a refresher on some basics. Once again, private tuition may be the answer.

The specialist providers of such tuition will be only too pleased to advise you on the options and costs available for you.

What about taking a course online? How can that help? Here are some of the differences between having a private one-on-one tutor and taking an online class.


Online Drum Lessons Versus Private Drum Instructor

Taking drum lessons on the internet has become popular among students eager to learn how to play. The benefits of this method of drum instruction become more accessible. There are free and paid lessons available online and a large selection of drum instructors for all ages and levels.

Nonetheless, what makes traditional private instruction that different from online drum tutorials? Aside from the physical and readily apparent differences, there are other reasons you must understand before deciding.

Let’s look at these differences and talk about them:


Lesson Structure

Generally speaking, one-on-one drum lessons are reliable when it comes to the organization of a student-friendly lesson structure. Good private instructors will customize the lessons to better fit the student’s learning style, skill, age, etc.

Because there is direct personal contact between instructor and student, any changes can be made immediately and on the go.

On the other hand, some online resources for drum lessons may not be as reliable in providing the right progression of drum theory and knowledge to beginners, or perhaps have a very general lesson structure that does not really cater to the specific needs of some students.

This is why careful consideration must be made before signing up for any online drum lessons.


Practice Routines

If you have a private drum instructor, you are personally instructed to practice for a certain amount of time every week between lessons. Online drum courses let the student decide how much and when to practice and which lessons to focus on. While some people can effectively work on their own and practice what they learned, others need the guidance and monitoring of someone else so they do not get sidetracked or end up developing poor habits.



Another thing a beginner has to keep in mind with online drum lessons is the importance of self-responsibility. Because there is no private instructor to check the student’s progress weekly, there is the temptation to put off practicing or learning new content. Learning the drums online requires additional effort to stay on track and keep up with the course to progress further with the material.
