Drum Lessons for all Skills Levels

Our Drum Lessons are for beginner drummers who are just starting drums, or have been playing drums for a while and developed intermediate skills, or even advanced drummers who have outgrown their current drum teacher’s abilities.

Drums are Fun. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

People discovered the joys of drumming as early as 5,500 BC, can you imagine?! Across the millennia and centuries, the drums have of course been used in various contexts (ceremonial, as a means of communication, militarily, etc.). But most importantly, playing the drums has long evolved into a musical art form! And that’s because drums have always given us joy!

The drum set today is mostly heard in bands–to keep all the players together and keep a steady pace of the music. But wait until it’s the drummer’s turn to play solo, and you’ll notice just how incredibly powerful and effective drums are even when played just by themselves! It’s so exciting. With a skilled drummer it can be truly exhilarating to listen to the acrobatics of the performer and feel the energy of the music!

Drum Lessons for Children, Teenagers and Adults

At Music Academy of Texas @ Katy, we teach drum lessons for children, teenagers as well as adults. All drum students are welcome, whether they are beginners, intermediate or advanced level. 

From Beginner to Advanced Drum Lessons

Beginner drum students will do very well with 30-minute lessons. But as they become more comfortable on the instrument and improve their drumming skills over time, the music they learn gets more involved. At that point, it will make sense to switch to 60-minute weekly lessons to have enough time in lessons for covering the additional materials with their teacher.

Drum Lessons FAQ’s

Should I purchase an acoustic or electric drum set?

An acoustic drum set is loud, which is one thing that makes it fun to play! But noise can be a real problem at home. If you don’t have a space somewhere in the house to practice without bothering others, you should definitely consider an electric drum set.
