ABOUT OUR DRUM LESSONS
At the basis of all musical study is the component of rhythm. Not only is establishing a steady overall beat important, but also executing rhythmic variations within that beat. This may sound rather complicated, but in a drum lesson, this can become a fun and interactive experience for a student of any level. Drums are one of the most enjoyable instruments anyone can learn and are a great choice for kids and adults alike! We teach a diversity of styles such as rock, pop, jazz, latin, and more. Drum lessons at Kingwood Arts Academy are taught with total musicianship in mind while providing a comprehensive music education that includes theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, coordination and history. We offer weekly private drum lessons to students starting at age 5 and have 30 and 60-minute lessons available. Our expert music teachers are dedicated to tailoring music lessons to your interests by learning about your personal musical goals and helping you achieve them. Learn to play the beats to your favorite songs, or improve percussion technique for your band at school. If your little one is full of energy and banging on pots and pans at home, drum lessons can be a great creative outlet!
DRUM LESSONS FOR BEGINNERS
All of our drum instructors love working with beginners, and have experience creating a structured program to help students master all the foundational aspects of not only drumming technique, but also rhythm, theory, and reading music. Instructors use both method books and the student’s favorite songs to teach concepts. Music instructors not only teach the basics of how to play a song or exercise, but they also establish good practice techniques from the beginning of the student’s study. In a drum lesson, the teacher can provide constructive ways to practice that are outlets for creativity and efficient for mastering a certain technique or rhythm. Though drums and percussion instruments can easily make sound using incorrect techniques, this instrument group is enjoyed most using a proper grip, posture, wrist motion, etc. Drum instructors will introduce and demonstrate how to execute these points, and the student will have a newfound understanding of the fine movements that go into playing correctly.
DRUM LESSONS FOR EXPERIENCED STUDENTS
Whether students have been self-taught or have experience from another instructor or school, we know how to help them reach the next goal. Intermediate or advanced drum students learn how to play more challenging music and fine-tune and polish their playing by mastering more advanced techniques and theoretical applications. Advanced intermediary grooves, shifts and meters are taught and drilled until perfected. Whether students want to learn a new style, prepare for a life-changing audition, get good enough to join a band, or just keep playing for fun, our music teachers have the knowledge, experience and wisdom to get them there. Our expert music teachers are dedicated to tailoring music lessons to your personal musical ambitions!
DRUM LESSONS FOR ADULTS
There is no greater way to liberate stress than banging on the drums to your favorite songs! Drums and percussion instruments naturally lend themselves to creative expression. Some of the most innovative and interesting improvisational music is composed for percussion instruments, because they can be much less regimented than other instrument groups. Also, rhythm is at the heart of every person and can be explored in the study of drums. Our instructors enjoy working with adults whether they are brand new beginners or already have some experience playing. A drum instructor will have many exercises for their students centered around ways to vary rhythmic patterns within a steady beat, which reinforces the individuality and improvisational spirit of percussion study. After personally discussing your specific goals, our instructors will create a structured plan that will have you on a path to success before you know it, all while jamming out, relieving stress, sharpening your skills, and having a blast!

WHAT SETS US APART

FREE OPTIONAL RECITALS TWO TIMES PER YEAR
Progress equals to happiness. Students and parents can feel progress in a tangible way through our free and optional recitals. Twice a year our students will have the opportunity to put into practice what they have learned and show their talent on stage. There is nothing better than performing live to maximize the wonderful experience of music and take the journey to the next level. Participation is always optional.
NO CONTRACTS OR SEMESTER BASED PROGRAMS
We work on a month-to-month basis. Our students have the flexibility to enroll or withdraw from our private lesson studio at any given point depending on whatever is more convenient for them.
WE REALLY KNOW WHAT IT TAKES TO SUCCEED IN MUSIC (AND IN LIFE)
80 percent of your success in learning how to play a musical instrument comes from your psychology and only 20 percent from the mechanics. This is also true for anything else in life. This is why we put a lot of emphasis on strengthening the mindset, emotional resources, and inner strength of our students. As a result, students learn to eliminate limiting beliefs, and are empowered to overcome the many challenges that arise in this wonderful journey. This also makes our lessons go beyond music education and become lessons for life.
