Drum Lessons for Beginners and Intermediate Drummers

Drum Lessons for Beginner

Our drum lessons are designed to help you learn how to play what you want while advancing your drum skills.  Beginners drum students learn basic rhythms, proper technique, and practice coordination exercises.  This means learning quarter notes, eighth notes, and their combinations, how to hold the drumsticks correctly, using wrists and arms to produce different sounds on the drum set and playing a simple beat with the hands while adding in bass drum hits with the foot. 

Intermediate Drummers

For intermediate drum students, we focus on advanced rhythms and grooves, dynamic control which includes practicing techniques such as ghost notes (very soft notes) and accents (emphasis on certain notes) to add depth and expression to their playing.  Lastly, intermediate drummers practice playing different rhythms with each limb simultaneously, enhancing their ability to play complex patterns and fills.
