Drum Lesson FAQ’s

Typically because of the coordination required, 8 years old is an ideal age to start. With that being said, some children have been able to start even younger. For students younger than 8, we schedule 2-3 lessons as a trial, to make sure they are ready.  We will always give you honest and helpful advice to make sure your child is ready and can be successful with their musical training.

YES. How will you learn or get better if you can’t practice? Imagine how hard it would have been to learn to drive if you didn’t have a car available for you to learn.

If you or your child is learning drum set, you should have a set at home – acoustic or electric at the appropriate size. If your child is taking lessons for the school band or orchestral percussion, the minimum you will need is a snare drum and drum pad (rubber mounted playing surface).

For younger children, they will need to sit low enough for their feet to touch the pedals while also having the drums low enough and easily reachable. This is mostly determined by the bass drum size. There are a few companies that sell introductory drum sets designed for this purpose.
Any large music store will carry these, especially during the holidays. Electronic drum sets are another viable option. Just be sure that what you’re purchasing is designed to simulate an actual drum set. We are here to help with any questions you may have.

During the beginning stages of lessons, 1-2 years, either acoustic or electric will be fine.

All students should have their own sticks (size 5A is recommended for beginners), a metronome, a drum pad (rubber mounted playing surface), a music stand (for home), a manuscript notebook, and a folder for music.  Books we will use will depend largely on the students age and interests (drum set or orchestral studies), which will be discussed during the initial lesson.
