Our Value Driven Promise: Learn What You Want to Play
We want to provide the knowledge and techniques so you can make the most out of your musical investment and have fun doing it.
Drums, like other instruments, require learning techniques, and our instructors can teach you those and show you how to build them into your own original songs. We can also teach you the best ways to practice your favorite songs to help those techniques grow.
Every genre has a different playing style, and it doesn’t matter what genre you want to play. We can help you learn the fundamental rhythms and patterns of any genre or style and help you start to create a musical foundation. We tailor each lesson to focus on what you want to learn and teach what your learning style needs.
Our lessons are flexible with clear expectations for both instructor and student. If life disrupts your plans and you can’t make a lesson, that’s okay. Just let us know as soon as you can, and we can reschedule your session to a better time.
A Few of Our Talented Percussion Instructors
Kids to Seniors Welcome
We believe that as long as kids are old enough to hold drumsticks, they can play the drums. Younger children often just want to play because it’s fun, and the instructors who teach our lessons understand fun. We know how to teach music to people of all ages and ensure each lesson fits their ability.
In addition to teaching technique, we can help ensure that your child’s drum set-up and throne are the right size for their age and help your teenager learn with lessons made up of modern songs they already enjoy, so practicing doesn’t seem like work.
Regardless of age, we make sure that our lessons encourage creativity and motivate students to learn more. If they start to become dull, we can reassess and adapt our teaching methods.
Of course, our lessons aren’t just for children. We have packages that include multiple family members because it’s never too late to start drumming. You probably said you’d try when you had time; well, even if you have a busy life already, there’s always time to fit in a virtual lesson.
Beginners to Advanced Students Too!
Learning an instrument is a lifelong pursuit, and we’re happy to take students from any part of that journey from no experience to years of experience.
If you’ve never held a drumstick, our professional instructors can show you how and if you played the drums in a band but want to learn a new genre, we’re happy to help you do that, too.
Some of our students start as beginners and learn fills, beginner solos, rhythms, techniques, and note reading by learning to play their favorite songs. Other students turn to us to help them strengthen the basics and set up the framework to move onto advanced techniques and higher education training.
Here at Bold Music, we know that staying engaged with lessons and keeping up a practice habit comes down to enjoying the process and wanting to succeed. We involve you every step of the way, so your drum lessons will continue being enjoyable even when the material becomes more challenging.
Remember to Practice Your Drumming At Home!
Fun is fundamental to learning a new instrument and equally as important as practice. Our instructors teach their students fun ways to practice that reward persistence because practicing is necessary, but it can be tiring.
Each lesson we teach is full of valuable skills, but a drummer evolves through their practice. As most instruments require honing hand-eye coordination, our drum lessons include tricks to work on between lessons to get better at the genre you want to play.
Timing and repetitive patterns are the backbones of a good drummer’s skillset, and your favorite pattern can happen with consistent practice.
