Drum Lessons for Beginners
In Drums 101, students learn the basics of drumming, including how to play their first songs.
We start by teaching students the different parts of their drum kit, as well as correct posture and grip. Students then start to learn basic drumming patterns, also known as rudiments.
At the same time, we teach students how to keep a beat, control tempo, and read music. Our beginner drum lessons include learning basic music theory and song structure. We also teach aspiring drummers how to interact with other musicians and lead a band!
We can adjust the curriculum of Drums 101 for students who have prior experience drumming. These students can skip ahead to intermediate techniques, allowing them to build on their existing skills.
By the end of Drums 101, students will be able to play their first songs. We give students the chance to perform in front of peers, giving them confidence in their skills and helping them build stage presence!
