Lesson Details

At ROOTS, drum lessons are a fun mix of learning the parts to some of your favorite songs, as well as expanding knowledge, technique, rhythm, and skills as a drummer. Our committed and knowledgeable mentors tailor each lesson to fit the student’s interests, level and goals.

From the basics to the stage, working with our mentors will help you become the well-rounded, performance-ready drummer you want to be.

You do not have to purchase a drum kit to take lessons — beginning students can learn with a drum pad and sticks but will also have the opportunity to play on one of our acoustic drum sets in the studio during lessons.
