Colleyville Drum Lessons

Want to learn drums? How this works:

Students want to play the drums because they are FUN! But parents get nervous because drums are LOUD! The good news is that most students can start lessons with just a basic practice pad and drum sticks. Students will learn the basics of rhythm and be able to practice at home before committing to the purchase of a drum set. Once you’re ready to purchase a kit, you can choose acoustic or electric, which will allow the student to practice with headphones. After you begin lessons, just ask your teacher about which kit is right for you!

Drum students greatly benefit from a few years of piano lessons first, but we don’t require it. Students are usually around age 10 when they can comfortably take drum lessons, but younger students can be successful, too, so just ask us when you contact us, and we will help you make the right decision!

We care about you
