Drum Lessons at Musicologie


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.

What to Expect From Drum Lessons

1. Do an Assessment


The first step is a one hour drum assessment. You’ll meet with your teacher, fill out some paperwork, and then you’ll get started playing! The drum assessment is designed for your teacher to get to know you and your specific learning style. It also is an opportunity to make sure the teacher we pair with you is the right one. You need to be with a teacher that can make your drum lessons fun and inspiring. If the fit isn’t right, we’ll match you with a different drum teacher at no charge. The assessment lesson is $60.


2. Schedule an ongoing lesson time


Once you’ve done the assessment, we’ll get you on the calendar for weekly lessons. Every student commits to lessons through the end of a quarter. It’s totally fine to start in the middle of a quarter, we’ll just prorate the remaining weeks. More about quarters and tuition here.


3. Get good!


Now the fun part – learn how to play the drums! Practice hard at home. Come every week to your lesson. Your teacher will give you songs to work on according to your ability and interests. They’ll make sure you’re developing good technique, note reading, and rudiments. They’ll encourage you to practice and help you through the inevitable struggles. Then, once you’re ready, you can perform at one of our recitals!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much are drum lessons?

Drum lessons are $32 per half hour.


How do the quarters work?

Our year is divided into four quarters that roughly coincide with the school calendar. The semesters range from 8 weeks (summer quarter) to 17 weeks (fall quarter).Every student commits to a quarter of lessons at a time. Here are detailed dates and tuition.


What if the quarter has started already? Do I have to wait?

Nope! You can start whenever you want. We’ll just prorate the remaining weeks of the quarter for you


What age should I start drum lessons for my child?

If your child is excited about drums, the right time is right now! We have 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. Read our article about when to start music lessons.


Where are the drum lessons held?

At our studio in Grandview Heights, just west of downtown Columbus Ohio.


What can I expect at the drum assessment?

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 semester.


What if my drum teacher isn’t a good fit?

Our teachers are fun, engaging and incredibly talented with lots of experience. However we know that a good personality match with your teacher is just as important for lessons to be successful. In the rare event that you\’re just not feeling it, we\’ll match you with a different teacher, no charge, no questions asked.


Can you do drum lessons at my home?

Currently we only do drum lessons at our Grandview studio. There are two reasons: First, we’ve worked hard to make sure our space is an ideal learning environment. We have a comfortable waiting area, sound proof lesson rooms, a large live room with great vintage Ludwig and Slingerland drum sets and a recording studio. We’re also located within walking distance or coffee shops, grocery stores, cafes and boutiques. Second, our teachers are all highly trained, in demand professionals. Their schedules are very full and lessons are booked back to back. That means there’s not any time for travel to and from students’ homes. We do know it can be convenient for students to have lessons in their home, so maybe we’ll offer Skype lessons in the future!
