My favorite part about teaching is watching a new student develop as a drummer, reach their goals, and reap the rewards of their devoted practice. I love seeing a student transform over a couple months of taking lessons. Seeing them go from struggling with something initially, then a few weeks or months down the road, after we have put in our focus and energy into improving it and mastering it, seeing them absolutely crush that same drum groove, rudiment, or exercise! Being able to see someone else grow, achieve their goals, and improve their drumming and knowing I was able to help them get their, is incredibly rewarding and satisfying to me....

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?

Very thoughtful and patient
Alternative School of Music

Josh is amazing! He is teaching my 4-year-old son how to play drums which is a challenge with such a young age… Josh is knowledgeable and has a lot of patience. With only 3 classes we’re seeing improvements in my boy and I can’t thank him enough! I will take my daughter soon to take piano lessons with him too and I am also planning to learning how to play the guitar!

Rice truly was everything one could ask for out of an instructor. His willingness to explore other people's preferred style of playing guitar was outstanding. He answered all my questions and I felt right at home doing lessons with him. I really enjoyed playing the guitar with Rice and I'd definitely recommend him to anyone who's interested.

Dennis is kind, patient, and an extremely talented musician. I never leave his studio without a new skill to practice and each lesson leaves you wanting another. No matter your level of music knowledge he has the gift to guide anyone in their journey of bettering their musicianship. I strongly recommend him!
