What Do You Learn In Drum Lessons?

We have the most professional drum lesson rooms in Knoxville; with state of the art Yamaha Electronic drum kits for students to use.  Our drum instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues, and many other styles.  Drum language can be complex and our instructors will challenge any drummer with a wide variety of technical exercises designed to improve your speed and comfort. Bring in your favorite drum parts to learn in your lessons and learn the foundations of rhythm.  Many of our drum students have gone on to play in local bands, be it in rock clubs or their local churches.  You do not have to purchase a drum kit to take lessons.  Beginning students can learn with a drum pad and sticks for only about $25.00.  Students use our drum set at their lessons and do not have to bring anything except their drumsticks and a notebooks.

What Happens at the First Lesson?

Prospective drum students often ask that question.  Our drum teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals.  We do not treat every drum student the same in terms of what and how we teach.  A 9 year old having their first drum lesson will have very different needs than a 57 year old taking up drums for the second time after having had lessons as a child.
