All Ages Are Welcome

At Bold Music, we teach students who range in age from very young kids to seniors. One of the best things about the drums is that they appeal to nearly everybody. Our skilled instructors can teach newbies who have zero experience as well as seasoned players who want to work on challenging solos, and everything in between.
Another great thing about the drums is that they can be played with all kinds of music. We gear your lessons to your specific tastes and preferences. So just let us know what type of music you like, and we will teach you that style on the drums.

We know that most people have busy schedules, and it can be tough to make it across town for lessons. But that's not a problem with Bold Music because we come to you. We will gladly work around your schedule. You just let us know when is the best time for you, and we will come to your home. That means no stress for you!
We're very flexible, so if something unexpected comes up and you have to reschedule your lesson, it's no problem.

We Teach All Skill Levels Too

Bold Music welcomes students at every skill level. Whether you are a beginner who's never touched a drum set or an advanced player who has stage experience, we can help you improve your skills. If you have a passion for the drums, we can make you a better musician.

Our highly-skilled instructors have something fun and exciting to teach everyone. If you are a beginner, you will work on fun songs to hone your skills for more advanced songs. For our more experienced drummers, we offer challenging and entertaining pieces. We also teach new tricks and techniques.

There are many benefits of taking private drum lessons, not the least of which is that you don't have to get lost in a boring group class. You also don't have to stress over traffic or other time constraints because we work around your schedule, and we come to you. We will help you to work on your skills in the comfort of your own home. And we have a flexible rescheduling policy should you need to change your time.

Practice Makes Perfect!

The best way to become a better percussionist is to practice. We recommend that you practice the drums for at least 20 minutes a day. But with that said, we will never require you to practice. We understand if you have a miss a week.

It's important to remember though that practice is the key to improving. You will get a lot more out of your lessons if you practice in between. Playing the drums involves your entire body. You use everything from your brain to your bones. By practicing, you are training your body to put all of the components together.

The more that you practice, the more muscle memory and automatic reactions you will build. That means that you will be a better percussionist. The bottom line is, practice makes perfect!
