In-Home Drum Lessons in Atlanta

What would music be without rhythm? Our drum lessons give students the essentials of great drum kit playing.

We have drum students start as young as five years old, and we work on technique, rhythmic notation, and music reading. From learning how to hold drumsticks to playing drum solos, our students learn what they need to know to become great drummers. What’s most exciting is to see our drum students become the backbone of bands that they form with their friends and siblings.

Drum Lessons in Atlanta For All Ages

Drum Lessons For Kids

Can young kids really learn to play the drums? Absolutely – we’ve helped kids as young as five start learning to play the drums. In the process, your child will develop a strong sense of rhythm, learn to love music, and learn the art of disciplined practice.

Brands like Ludwig and Pearl offer junior drum kits, such as the Ludwig Junior Outfit Drum Set and the Pearl Roadshow Jr. These sets usually include everything needed to start drumming right away, such as scaled-down drums, cymbals, hardware, and drumsticks. For those with limited space, electronic drum sets such as the Roland TD-1K offer a compact, volume-controlled solution.

We make lessons fun, and we include visual aids, simplified technical exercises, and real backing tracks so your child is playing along to music right away. Our young students love this approach, and they often can’t wait for their next lesson.

Drum Lessons For Teens and Adults

Our teenage and adult drum students often have a favorite band or genre they’d like to study. We have our fair share of Neil Peart fans of course, but many of our students love to focus on drumming along to Metallica, studying the complex rhythms of Danny Carey (Tool), and even Travis Barker. We can also help you learn to drum in funk, R&B, jazz, and even fusion styles.

We Teach Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Drummers

For beginners, the focus is on drumming fundamentals. We’ll study basic rhythms and beats such as the 4/4 rhythm, executing simple fills, and maintaining a steady tempo. Proper drumstick grip and sitting posture are also emphasized to facilitate ease of playing, alongside an introduction to the different components of a drum kit and their functions.

Intermediate lessons may include mastering complex rhythms and syncopation to incorporate off-beat rhythms into their playing, and dynamic playing to control the volume and intensity. Furthermore, intermediate students explore a variety of drumming styles from genres such as rock, jazz, and blues, and learn how to adapt their techniques accordingly.

Advanced lessons may include working with complex time signatures beyond the standard 4/4, like 7/8 or 5/4, and applying these creatively. Techniques to enhance speed without compromising precision, as well as endurance training for longer performances, are also covered. We will also teach you to find your unique drumming style, write solos, improvise fills, and much more. The sky’s the limit.
