Frequently Asked Questions
LEARNING TO PLAY THE DRUMS
Should I buy a drum set before starting lessons?
You will definitely want to purchase or rent an instrument for your child to have at home. For drumsets, we can help you with the right decision for a good home instrument within your budget. Electronic sets are great as they allow the student to practice at home without shaking the house down! Headphones can be used by the student at home.
How long does it take to learn the drums?
There is no set answer of how long it takes to learn to play drums. With regular practice, a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take drum lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the music lessons enjoyable.
