Music lessons used to be a part of everyday life. First, many of us had music classes required at school. Today, most schools budgets are strained and music and other art forms are being sacrificed. However studies are showing this is at a great cost to our developing brains. When we overlook music, we bypass important opportunities for development, coordination, understanding timing, and more.

Counting and Timing Skills
Learning to play drums gives you a solid foundation with rhythmic fundamentals. This means learning to count and keep a steady beat and use all 4 limbs! Also, we learn about different divisions of the beat, and how to coordinate that for each limb. Using a standard rock beat as an example, the drummer may be controlling beats 1 and 3 with his or her right foot using the kick drum. Also, the left hand is on or around beats 2 and 4 on the snare. While this is happening the right hand may be using 1/8 notes on the hi hat, and the left foot may be releasing and depressing the hi hat pedal on the and of beat 2 each measure. This is a lot to coordinate! It gets more and more fun as the student can execute these skills with ease.
Equipment Needed for Beginners:
We know you may be concerned about noise issues. Our in home instructors can help you get started with very little required equipment. We promise there are solutions so you don’t end up upsetting your other family members, or neighbors. All you need are some sticks, and maybe brushes, as well as a decent drum pad. As you make progress, you can consider getting an electronic kit. These kits offer very realistic sounds using headphones. Some options for electronic drum kits can be found with a few quick online searches. The quality is very competitive these days, even from entry level kits. If you have a garage, or basement, you can use some basic materials to deaden the sound. This can facilitate a traditional acoustic drum kit, which makes a lot of noise.
Resources for Equipment:
First, try resources like Sweetwater Audio, Musicians Friend or your local drum shop! Nothing compares to real drums of course, with real drum heads. However we realize not everyone has the option or space to accommodate this. Beginners can start with a simple drum pad and set of sticks, which is a small investment, and is quiet. This way you’ll have no complaints from neighbors. Once students learn rudiments of counting and timing they gradually work up to playing full drum kit. Electronic kits are a great way to go if you are concerned about noise. Drummers can practice to their hearts delight, all in headphone land. If you have any home recording plans, the electronic kit is also a great option. Its much easier these days to get good sounds electronically than with actual mics unless you are very skilled.
