About the Drum
Drums, a versatile percussion instrument, consist of various components such as acoustic or electronic drums and a range of auxiliary equipment, providing a dynamic rhythmic foundation across diverse musical genres.
Drums are instruments that can be started from approximately 6 years old. You can play on an acoustic (ideally) or electric drum set. It is a fun choice of instrument for beginner teenagers.
All of our teachers hold university degrees specifically in their instrument. We selected them for their passion for music and care for teaching. They are always encouraging and positive, catering to each student’s interests, desires, and goals. We teach with an “American Approach” to music education with your hands on the instrument from the first day (read our blogpost about the American Approach).
Online Drum Lessons Options
We offer 30-minute, 45-minute or 1-hour weekly lessons. Online drum lessons take place on the day and time you choose.

The Conservatory prepares about 25% of our student body for optional ABRSM exams. These exams are not mandatory.
ABRSM exams are designed to motivate students of all levels and ages, giving them realistic goals and tangible rewards for their achievements. Since 1889, ABRSM has provided music teachers and their students with exams and assessments that nurture and evaluate an individual’s performance and progress.
