ABOUT OUR DRUM PROGRAM (AGES 6+)
Drumset and percussion instruction is offered as a weekly 30, 45, or 60 minute private lesson. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced lessons are available for students interested in a variety of different styles such as rock, pop, jazz, latin, classical percussion, and more. Learn to play the beats to your favorite songs, or improve percussion technique for your band at school. If your little one is full of energy and banging on pots and pans at home, drum lessons can be a great creative outlet!
DRUMS FOR BEGINNERS
All of our drum instructors love working with beginners, and have experience creating a structured program to help students master all the foundational aspects of not only drumming technique, but also rhythm, theory, and reading music. Instructors use both method books and the student’s favorite songs to teach concepts, generally starting with the snare drum and quickly moving to use the entire drum set. Our drum rooms have two full acoustic sets so the instructor can demonstrate on one set while the student plays on the other.
DRUMS FOR EXPERIENCED STUDENTS
Whether students have been self-taught, have experience from another instructor or school, or gained all their experience at Expressions, we know how to help them reach the next goal. Intermediate or advanced drum or percussion students learn how to play more challenging music and fine tune and polish their playing by mastering more advanced techniques and theoretical applications. Whether students want to learn a new style, prepare for a high school or college audition, get good enough to join a band, or just keep playing for fun, our instructors have the knowledge and experience to get them there.
DRUMS FOR ADULTS
There is no greater way to release stress than banging on the drums to your favorite songs! Our instructors enjoy working with adults whether they are brand new beginners or already have some experience playing. After talking through your specific goals, our instructors will create a structured plan that will have you on a path to success before you know it, all while jamming out, relieving stress, sharpening your skills, and having a blast!
