You want to play drums? Awesome, we love drums!
Drums are a physical instrument and challenges your concentration and focus. Great drummers are great listeners. This means listening to your band, metronome, or your teacher :) We have drum students beginning as young as 5 year old. The most successful students are not always the most energetic, but the students that are able to know when to play, but also when to stop and listen. Our drum instructors have many years experience working with all ages and abilities and can ensure that you are getting to that "next level".
