Keep the beat with confidence.
One-on-one music lessons with the pros, in-home and online.
Learn to Play Drums
Drum lessons start with the basics: learning each and every student’s goals and aspirations. Who do you listen to? What are your favorite bands? What attracted you to the drums? What makes you feel most excited to play? Where do you want your musical journey to take you? Once we understand the student’s goals and passion points, our expert drum teachers use this information to create a customized curriculum that has them looking forward to every lesson.
Without Missing a Beat
The SoundLife approach is to build on a student’s excitement. From the very first lesson, students are behind the drums, quickly learning rudiments and basic beats to begin rocking right away. These basic tools are then applied to songs they love, and the mystery begins to melt away. Our primary goal is to sky-rocket engagement by showing students how to use what they learn in their lessons to navigate and interpret the wealth of musical information all around them every day. From social media to websites, apps, and YouTube, learning opportunities are everywhere. We empower and guide students as they problem solve, and we help accelerate their progress by giving them real-world applications for what they learn.
We’re a performance-driven school. We use songs, techniques, and projects to set personal goals with each student. This may lead to reading drum notation, understanding a variety of stylistic approaches to the instrument,how to swing and improvise, or playing double pedal patterns in complex time signatures. We meet students where they are and guide them to get where they want to be. We connect with what they love in order to teach them how to find and confidently express their creative voice.
Whether you're a beginner or an accomplished player, we have a teacher for you!
We’ve worked with every level of student. Maybe you’ve been drumming for years and want to kick it up a notch, or maybe this is the first time you’ve ever sat at a kit. Either way, we’ve got you! Our teachers have played arena stages around the world, and have experience, excitement, and skills to share.
