Since DRUM WORLD opened its doors in 1990, we have been the “go to” place for drum instruction. All lessons are taught by our professional teaching staff who have many years of experience and are skilled in many different playing styles. We can teach virtually any percussion instrument. We pride ourselves in teaching all age and skill levels and have taught beginners who have never picked up drum sticks, all the way up to pros who just want to add some new techniques or styles to their repertoire. Our students learn on real drum sets, not practice pads, and there are 2 drum sets in each of our large teaching studios to save valuable time on awkward “switching” from teacher to student.

We have a lot of parents who ask us, “What is the right age to start my child in lessons”? Although we have taught as young as the age of 4, we have found that 8 is just about the right age for most children. At that age, their attention span is a little longer and they can comprehend the lessons being taught to them, but each individual is different and we will be glad to discuss all your options with you.

All lessons at DRUM WORLD are 30-minute private one-on-one lessons. There is NEVER a sign up fee for lessons at DRUM WORLD. Tuition is just $80.00 per month on a month-to-month basis with no multiple month contracts to worry about.
