LEARN DRUMS. ROCK OUT. 

EDMONTON'S DRUM LESSONS THAT ROCK

INTRO TO DRUMS IS THE PERFECT WAY TO START LEARNING DRUMS. IT'S ALSO THE PERFECT WAY TO ROCK OUT.

Your child is ready to give 'er on the drums. But you know that learning to play drums the traditional way can be lonely and unmotivating. Not to mention kind of boring.

Intro to Drums is designed to introduce your child to everything they need to know on drums while helping them get ready to join a rock band!

After completing Intro to Drums - Level 1, your child will be ready to join our Junior Rock Band program.

INTRO TO DRUMS Q & A

We do recommend that Intro to Drums students have a drum kit at home to practice on. 

This being said, if this your child's first time learning drums, you may want to wait and see if they actually like learning drums before buying a drum kit for home. Renting a drum kit is often a great first step.

The short answer is you can learn to play drums on either!  

An acoustic kit is less complicated to set-up and has a better "feel" to it. An electric kit is great if you're worried about sound levels and want to keep volume down. 

No, your child doesn't need to have any previous experience on drums to register for Intro to Drums.

Whether your child has completed our Bigger Beats program or is a complete beginner, Intro to Drums is the perfect next step.

We get that life happens and you can't always make your drum lessons. 

The great thing about Intro to Drums, is that each week your child will receive a short video that outlines and reviews what they learned in class that week. 

This means that if your child ever has to miss a class, they can simply watch the weekly video and they'll be right up to speed! 

Payments are simple and they are done on a monthly basis.

After confirming your lesson time,  you will be asked to enter your credit card information into a secure online portal. Then, your credit card will be automatically charged at the beginning of every month.
