School of Rock offers simple yet effective drum lessons for beginners that bypass entry-level pad training. Students get behind a drum kit during their first lesson to start learning how to play the drums. Through private drum lessons, group rehearsals, and live performances, students will learn introductory rudiments to drum fills and solos. School of Rock has been teaching drum lessons to kids and adults for decades and we have given more drummers a start in the business than any other music program in the world. Our core philosophy is that the best way for students to gain musical proficiency is through performance-based music education. All of our programs (even the beginner drum programs for kids like Rookies and Rock 101) include a performance aspect.
When a student progresses beyond beginner drum lessons, they will move to School of Rock's intermediate to advanced drum lessons programs (Performance, House Band, and AllStars), putting them on the path to mastery. During weekly private lessons and group rehearsals, our expert drum teachers guide students through advanced drumming techniques and training methods aimed at making them more skilled drummers. Advanced intermediary grooves, shifts and meters are taught and drilled until perfected. Drummers will ultimately be placed in bands and perform in live shows at the end of each session.
