You’ll get an experienced instructor matched to your musical interests & goals.
If you were the kid always banging on pots and pans with wooden spoons, California Music Studios welcomes you.
When you’re ready to graduate from kitchen utensils, we’ll match you with a professional drum instructor in your area that best fits your musical interests and goals, and the level of instruction you need: beginning, intermediate or advanced.
Your instructor can show you the proper technique to rock a drum set, teach you jazz, funk drumming, or tribal beats. It is never too late to learn.
Every instructor is qualified through a stringent evaluation process and has passed a thorough personal and professional background check.
Your teacher will build a personal connection with you for a custom lesson plan – so you have all of the tools you need to be successful!
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.
In addition to drums, California Music Schools offers students the chance to learn how to play the clarinet, brass, flute, French horn, trumpet, saxophone, and many other instruments.
