Matt Bazgier: Drums, Handpan, Percussion, Music Production Lessons (Ableton Live), Home Recording, Guitar For Beginners

For me teaching music is more about inspiring, passing the spark of passion, helping to grow, showing what is possible and helping to get there, helping to realize the potential that is already inside the student. Technical skills are important but they are not the most important, technique should serve the musical vision (doesn't matter how old is the student) One of my drums teacher told me once: "Do not play drums,  play music (with the drums)" and that is what I'm passing to my students. ...

Find the best teacher for drum lessons


Drums are one of the oldest instruments in the world. Commonly used as a percussion instrument, drums are usually played either together in a drum set or on their own, with either the hand or with sticks.

Drum lessons for beginners usually begin with a practice drum pad and sticks. Beginners learn how to hold the sticks, how to read drum music, and how to play notes and rests. Sometimes the beginner will already have a drum set, in which case lessons will include practicing the right sitting posture and how to use foot pedals.

Drum lessons for adults work in much the same way as lessons for kids, and you can choose to join group lessons or have one-on-one lessons instead. The great thing about learning as an adult is that you already know the musical genres you’d rather drum to – jazz, Latin, heavy metal, etc. – and the type of drum you’d rather learn to play. There are those who wish to learn drumming on drums such as the djembe, bongo drums, bodhrán, or even the tambourine. Even then, you can find drum teachers on lessons.com who specialize in giving lessons on those drums, which include the all-important lessons on hand technique.

Even if you are good at drumming, there is always room for growth. A personal drum instructor can customize your lesson plan based on the level you’re at and the level you’d like to reach. Some people learning to play drums feel that they can get good enough learning from online videos, and they do because they are committed to learning and practicing, but there is great benefit to signing up for personal lessons from a qualified, local, professional drum teacher:

  • You’re committed to going regularly.
  • You have one-on-one attention.
  • Your unique style of playing is honed quickly.
  • Your teacher can focus exclusively on your strengths and weaknesses.
  • You can gain confidence through the encouragement of your teacher.

No matter what age or skill level you are at, our qualified drum instructors are ready to help.
