What will I learn from drum lessons at The San Diego School of Music?


Our instructors challenge our students with wide-ranging technical exercises designed to improve speed and comfort. Drum language can be complex, and theory is encouraged. Students can bring in their favorite drum parts to learn in their lessons.

Do I need to purchase a drum kit to learn the drums?


Definitely not. Beginning students can rent and practice at home with a drum pad and sticks for only $22.50 per month to get started before seeing if and when a purchase makes sense.

Beginning students need only their drumsticks and a notebook, and all that’s needed for practice at home is an inexpensive drum pad. Drummers are encouraged to bring in their favorite drum parts to learn. Many of our students are band members who play in local clubs and churches.
