Andrew C. says, "I've been familiar with David since he did his first printing of Mastering the Tables of Time, but things never worked out for me to study with him until after I had moved to Japan (14 hours away from Central Standard Time). When I saw that he was taking students via Skype I thought I'd give it a try and I've been very impressed with the results. When I ask a question, David has been there before and is great about offering his perspective gained from many years of teaching and playing experience. He also is extremely quick at identifying weaknesses in my playing (sometimes things I hadn't even noticed!) and suggesting workable solutions. David also has been flexible with meetings times because there is only a small window where our schedules line up on a regular basis. A solid pro and someone I would recommend for whatever your playing level & musical style is." 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?

Rob has been a great fit for my boys ages 12 and 9. He very quickly determined their levels and helped them to feel proud of where they are and where they're going as individuals. He's a great teacher!

Chrestan teaches in a fashion that allows you to learn rhythm as well as theory. He gets to know his students and what their interests are and makes learning fun. He has been very flexible with scheduling and is always punctual. As an adult learner I have learned many new ways of playing. The lessons have inspired me to want to play again and I am very much enjoying the lessons! I would highly recommend him.

David is the best teacher out there! Many times I’ve struggled at the kit, whether it’s playing in odd time signatures, improving my brush work, or learning to solo, and David always has an approach that seems designed for me (although I’m guessing he’s just seen it all). I like that he’s extremely patient and non-judgmental. He also provides lengthy lesson recaps that go way above and beyond the call, which makes me appreciate the value I’m getting. Plus he’s fun to hang out with and talk music and drums. I love our weekly lessons!
