Isabella J. says, "I am a recent student at one of the studios William works at before I moved away from San Antonio. He gave lessons for both me on drums and my little sister, who was just starting out on piano. He was always punctual and respectful of my family’s time and always tried to give me content I could work on throughout the week to get me prepared for new material and ideas. Since taking lessons, I have improved vastly in my skills for high school band and drumset too. Highly recommended!" 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?
