Drum Lessons for Beginners
Pad practice and rudiments are important parts of learning to play the drums, but they aren't the most exciting parts. That's why beginner drummers at The Music Gallery hop on the kit and make music right away with exercises and repertoire that reinforce the same essential concepts as pad will such as technique, stick control, rhythm & groove, essential rudiments, and much more!

Drum With a Band!

Playing music with other people is the absolute best way to improve your skills, have some fun, and make friends in the process. We suggest drummers spend time playing with other musicians and gaining an understanding of other instrumentalist roles in the band context. Not only is this a fun way to share your musical experience with others, but this practice of listening to your bandmates offers some serious insight into your own playing and how to fit into the groove in a variety of situations.
