Drum Lesson Basics

Drums are a fun, active, and engaging instrument. It’s a great instrument for beginners of any age because you can start banging along to your favorite songs immediately. And getting started is easy: you just need a pair of drums sticks and a practice pad. We have drum students as young as three years old, but we offer lessons for beginning adults or advanced players too.

Don’t forget to check out Rock Band. It’s a great program devoted to performance and group playing. Drummers can learn how to be the time-keeper of the band and get in front of an audience playing their favorite songs.

We have had a fabulous experience with the music education at Musicologie! My son takes drum lessons and my daughter takes piano lessons – they have a love for music and they are inspired by their instructors to keep learning more!

Do you have more questions about drum lessons?

Check out more helpful info below:

Drum lessons are $32 per half hour paid monthly. All drum and percussion students sign up for a quarter of lessons. Here’s a detailed quarter schedule.
Our year is divided into four quarters that roughly coincide with the school calendar. The quarters range from 8 weeks (summer quarter) to 17 weeks (fall quarter). Every drum student commits to a full quarter of lessons at a time. If you start after the quarter has already begun, the quarter will be pro-rated for you.
Nope! You can start whenever you want. We’ll just prorate the remaining weeks of the quarter for you.
The assessment is not a test, so don’t be nervous. It’s a way for your teacher to get to know you, what you like, what your goals are, and what the best path forward is for you to get the most out of lessons. It’s also a way for you to try out your teacher before you commit to a whole quarter.
At our drum studio in Grandview Heights, just west of downtown Columbus Ohio at 1400 W 3rd Ave. We have a large drum room with three drum sets, including vintage Ludwig and Slingerland drum sets.
If your child is excited about the drums, the right time is right now! We have started drum students as young as 3 and 4. Our teachers are amazing at harnessing and developing young students’ passion for music. There are some instruments that are more difficult for very young students, but drums is a great place to start.
