Los Angeles Drum Classes


You’ve probably passed the Musicians Institute: College of Contemporary Music more than once and yearned to play the drums well. Or perhaps your kids loved the last performance by County Firefighter Pipes and Drums Band and have been hammering on your kitchen table ever since. The good news is that you and your children can learn how to play the drums well thanks to finding a qualified, local drum teacher at lessons.com.

It’s so quick, you can sign up in seconds, and totally worth it if learning means you can join L.A.’s drum community a year or two from now. But no matter what you want to learn the drums for, you can find a teacher on lessons.com for all levels of drum playing, with various prices per hour that can fit your budget.

Not only do we offer lessons at a studio close to your house, you can have a Los Angeles drum teacher come to you, so you can avoid going out into the traffic mess of Los Angeles’s freeways. We also offer Skype lessons, so if you have a drum set in the house, you don’t even need to leave your drum stool. Most of our teachers can teach beginner to advanced drum pupils, and even teach based on the genre you’d like to play in.

Have lessons that are as inspiring as a visit to the Rockwell Table & Stage. Just go to lessons.com’s drum page, enter your zip code, and find a teacher today!
