Nick G. says, "Bucket is not only an incredible percussionist but also an exceptional teacher. You can tell right away that he has a deep passion for music and sharing his gifts and knowledge with his students. I would absolutely recommend him to any person looking for drum lessons. I was very nervous to start lessons after many years away from playing and he quickly made me feel comfortable. I noticed a huge difference in my playing and confidence within the first couple months of lessons with him. Not only does he have the technical knowledge, but he has valuable industry knowledge from being a highly sought after professional drummer and industry leader. I even met a past student of his while he was touring with a successful band. The former student greeted Bucket with powerful admiration and it was clear to me at that time that Bucket is special as an instructor and he treats his student like family. He truly cares about his students and wants them to do the best they possibly can. No matter your skill level or style, sign up with Bucket. You will not be disappointed." Read more

My teaching approach: My desire is to help each student achieve their goals by making music fun & applicable to their needs and situation, directing them towards proficiency and self-sufficiency. I taught private guitar lessons and in many music stores for over 40 years, guitar courses in college for 6 years, in a performing arts charter high school for 4 years, and in elementary/middle school for 8 years. My influences are: Too many to mention, but you can start with the folksingers from the 50's to the 60's, the rock.pop, and blues players from the 50's to today.

Dylan G. says, "Johnny’s teachings help you develop your rhythm and sound a lot better by diving into the mechanics very early, which helped me a lot out with learning on my own. What I enjoyed most was we would sometimes put on a song from my playlist, and make it a project to listen and learn." Read more

Mike S. says, "Matt has been my guitar teacher over the past year and his help has been very significant in my improvement as a guitar player. Matt has helped me through multiple songs such as the Allman Brothers version of “Stormy Monday”, “Wanted Dead or Alive” by Bon Jovi and Led Zeppelins “Gallows Pole”. More importantly Matt has definitely improved my rhythm playing as well as my ability to play solos. He has also taught me about the role of the guitar player in a band and relates that role to rhythm, chords and solos that are played. He provided a structure that helped me better learn the fret board. Matt is very competent with music theory and conveys what is necessary for the student to be more competent and further enjoy playing guitar. At each of our lessons Matt demonstrates his expertise in music and guitar. Additionally, and important to me, is that Matt represents and conducts himself in a polite and professional manner. He is easy and fun to work with and cares about the success of his students." Read more

While the basics and notation are So very helpful, I think its important to teach basic beast and grooves to get the student playing music. Making it fun. Reading notation, rudiments are essential tools, playing along with music or other musicians as soon as possible are what keeps it interesting. Seeing new students progress and smile when they figure things out, like a new groove or beat. Learning to play an instrument has life long rewards if you have the interest and make the effort to progress....

Your Drum Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do drum lessons cost near me?

Drum lessons cost $50 to $75 hourly for private lessons in a studio. A monthly package of 4 to 5 lessons booked in advance costs $190 to $340 total. The cheapest drum lessons are group classes that cost $20 to $40 per session.

More teachers are available through online drum lessons with a price range of $40 to $60 per hour.

Are drum lessons worth it?

Drum lessons are worth if for those who want to play professionally or who want to learn faster. Private classes help students sharpen their techniques more quickly and build better playing habits. Expert tutors offer tailored feedback to nourishing the latent talents within their pupils.

At what age do you start drum lessons?

Children can start drum lessons between 6 to 9 years old. Initial instruction begins with a single drum. Kids can't play on a full drum kit until they can reach the foot pedals and focus for extended periods of time. For adults, any age is suitable to learn drumming.

How many drum lessons do you need?

You will need drum lessons every week for about half a year to a whole year in order to learn to play simple songs. If you want to audition for a band or play drums like a pro, it usually takes 2 to 5 years of lessons.

How fast you learn depends on how good you are now and how much you practice.

How long is a drum lesson?

A drum lesson is 30 to 60 minutes long on average. The lesson length depends on how experienced the student is and their age. Shorter lessons are better for beginners to help slowly increase their focus. This way, they can build up their strength for longer practice sessions later.

How do I find a good drum teacher near me?

Find a good drum teacher near you by searching for private drum tutors on here on Lessons. Another option you have is asking for the availability of teachers at music stores or community colleges.

Before you choose a drum teacher close to you, remember to:

  • Check the prices from at least 3 drum teachers to compare them.
  • Look at what people say about them on Lessons and Google.
  • Ask for a references list of students they are teaching or have taught.
  • If they will teach your child, ask other parents if their kids liked the teacher.
  • Make sure you get a written plan and a schedule before you start your first lesson.
  • Try a few classes and see if you like the teacher before you pay for a whole month of lessons.

What questions should you ask a drum teacher?

Before hiring a drum teacher, ask them:

  • How long have you been a drum teacher?
  • What music school did you go to?
  • What ages do you like to teach?
  • Can I try a lesson for free?
  • What kind of drum should I get if I don't have one at home?
  • How much should I practice between our lessons?
  • Can you tell me where to get cheap books for learning?
  • Will I get homework like drum patterns to remember?
  • Can you teach me in a way that helps me learn best?
  • How long is a lesson?
  • What should I bring to our lessons?
  • How many types of drum music can you teach me?
  • Can I get a copy of our lesson plan, rules, and how much I have to pay?
  • What if I can't come to a lesson because something important came up?
  • Can I learn to play my favorite songs on the drums?

Bucket is a wonderful teacher! He has been working with my son for almost 2 years now on drum set in all genres as well as helping him reach his goal of making drumline in marching band. He is positive and encouraging and has great energy! My son has learned so much skill wise, but also has become more confident as a person. He really cares about creating a well rounded drummer and helping his students achieve their goals. I highly recommend Bucket as a drum teacher! We feel lucky to have found him!
