Drums (Ages 8+)

Percussion has been central in our experience and expression of music through the ages, so it’s no wonder the drumset is the rhythmic backbone of modern popular music. Whether you want to rock like John Bonham, swing like Art Blakey, or break it down like ?uestlove, our drum teachers focus on what they all have in common; the fundamentals of technique and coordination, the role of timekeeping, and the stylistic elements of grooves, fills, and improvisation.

Teachers: Zack, Dylan
