- About Us
Do you like to bang on pots and pans with wooden spoons or silverware? Do you drum rhythms with your thumbs at your desk or dinner table? From primal beats and sticks on stones came the first musical instrument—aside from the human voice, anyway: the drums.
If you feel the need to beat a rhythm, you should consider in-home or studio drum lessons! Drum lessons are designed to help you feel confident and excited. Our students have fun learning percussion with California Music Studios.
Through drum lessons, your instructor can show you the proper technique to rock a drum set, teach you catchy jazz or funk drumming, as well as tribal beats.
Drum lessons are a ton of fun for kids, and adults can join in on the good times as well. It is never too late to learn the drums, and with instructors in San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Bernardino, and Riverside County, California Music Studios can help you reach your goals.
Drums were the first musical instrument and have become a global element for centuries. Rhythm is a universal language, so much so that drums appear in some form in every culture of the world. They are easy to learn and produce a visual and visceral response that you won’t find in other instruments.
As long as your child can sit behind a drum set with both feet resting on the foot pedals, he or she is good to go. With proper technique and posture, you don’t have to worry about aggravating joint pains. Drums are an all-age instrument, whether you’re in elementary school or retired.
Although knowing how to read music does help with understanding basic notation, it is definitely not required. Through repetition and instruction, you will learn note values, time signatures, and rests. It may seem confusing at first but with just a few lessons, you should gain an understanding of notation and playing advanced rhythms and drumming patterns.
