Gretta K. says, "So glad a friend told me about this company for our musical daughter! I couldn’t be happier with the ease of booking, communication, high quality teachers, and the fact that they come to your home for lessons is the most convenient thing ever! I can get so much more done having one less activity to shuttle around for. My daughter loves her teacher and I won’t use any other company for our music lesson needs. I’m even considering taking up guitar myself! Really appreciate the genius behind this quality and convenient company for hard working parents." Read more

Rich L. says, "We couldn't be happier with Paul. He was willing to give our son a chance to learn drums at 4-1/2 years old. It has worked out better than we imagined. It's been over a year now and our son looks forward to lessone every week. Paul is incredibly reliable and brings an element of fun to the lessons. He brings his guitar so they can end each lesson with a quick jam session which our son just loves. Couldn't ask for a better instructer or person." Read more

Crystal W. says, "I just finished Moon Magnet’s course, “Release Your Music in 90 Days.” When I first read about this course, I did not really believe that I could create releasable music in 90 days. Boy, was I wrong! From the very first lesson, my teacher was attentive, thorough and provided actionable feedback throughout the course. I walked away with 6 songs that with minor refinements will be released in the near future. I would recommend Moon Magnet to anyone who wants to develop a more structured recording, mixing, mastering, and release strategy." Read more

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?

I found Peter as a beginner, looking to take adult lessons. After just a few months, my sight reading, piano theory knowledge, and understanding of the instrument’s capabilities increased substantially. Peter continues to show me different ways to be creative with the piano in order to play the way I prefer/enjoy. He tailors our lessons based on what my ultimate goals are. He consistently finds new music for me to learn, and I always walk away from our lessons feeling more confident in my skills and knowledge of the piano. Another great thing about my lessons with Peter is the patience and understanding he shows with my progress; he is willing to go over things multiple times as needed and repeatedly works around my schedule when I have to miss a lesson. Overall, Peter is a kind and dedicated teacher that puts in time and effort to see me succeed in my goals. I highly recommend Peter for piano lessons.

Paul has been our son’s drum instructor for the past couple of years and we couldn’t be happier. Paul is a great guy! He is always on time and really works to accommodate schedule changes when the need arises. Brennan is really inspired by Paul’s love of music…and has really grown as a drummer. Brennan looks forward to his weekly lesson. Highly recommend!

Reed has been my two kids' piano teacher for the past five years and we all think Reed is the best! He is clearly a very skilled and talented musician himself and his love of music is obvious in his instruction and teaching style. As a teacher, Reed is a perfect combination of patience, encouragement, and structure. While he focuses on the fundamental and technical aspects of music, he also encourages students to develop their own style and explore songs and music that speak to their individual interests. My kids have learned to play some of their favorite songs which keeps them interested and excited about piano. When I hear my kids playing the piano, I am struck by the fact that, thanks to Moon Magnet, they are really good piano players! Reed is reliable and dependable while at the same time being flexible with scheduling. This flexibility is important to our family given our kids' activities and changing schedules. Reed is also friendly and approachable and always open to suggestions. We have referred Moon Magnet to several friends and they have all been extremely happy and impressed. If you are looking for a great piano teacher, look no further and contact Moon Magnet!
