Drum lessons for adults cost $50 to $75 per hour for private sessions. A shorter 30-minute session starts at $30 minimum. You can save money with a prepaid monthly drum lesson package that costs $190 to $340 for 4 to 5 lessons. Online drum lessons cost $40 to $60 hourly.
Group drum lessons that cost $20 to $40 per session are also available, but these classes are often best as supplemental instructions in addition to a private class.
Drum lessons for adults are worth it for those who aspire to play in a band or perform publicly in any way. Each session quickly refines your skills and fosters good playing habits. An expert instructor gives individualized feedback to develop your unique talents.
An adult needs as many drum lessons as necessary to meet their target goals. Learning simple songs requires weekly lessons for about 6 to 12 months. If you want to play drums professionally, it might take 2 to 5 years of lessons.
Remember, it all depends on your skills and how much you practice.
Drum lessons for adults are 30 to 60 minutes long. The length depends on how good you are, how long you can focus, and the teacher's availability. Shorter lessons work great for beginners to help them build stamina gradually to do longer practices later.
