Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced drum students who want to amp up their skill level will benefit from School of Rock’s unique approach to private instruction.


We teach fundamentals and advanced techniques through iconic rock music for a fun and lasting music education.

All of our drum students begin by learning about the drum kit and its many components. They are encouraged to hit each drum and cymbal and familiarize themselves with the sound each one makes. Our instructors explain what each drum contributes to the overall sound of the band.

Once our drum students have been introduced to the kit, they beginning working on basic rudiments – the rhythmic patterns that will form the backbone of their drumming. Drum students learn how to count measures and connect one section of a song with the other by executing drum fills.

Those basic patterns slowly morph into the drum beats used in popular rock song, and before they know it, the kids are playing the songs with other students!

Once they have learned a few songs, our drum students begin working to master their advanced rudiments.
