about our drum program
Drum and percussion instruction is offered as a weekly 30, 45, or 60 minute private lesson for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. Available styles include jazz, latin, rock, and more. Learn to play the beats to your favorite songs, or improve drumming technique for your band at school. If your young one is full of energy and banging on pots and pans at home, drum lessons can be a great creative outlet!
Beginning students will begin studies with a snare drum and gradually work up to learning the full set. Intermediate and advanced students will work from customized lesson plans to achieve short and long term goals. Because of sound considerations at the school, lessons are given on a high-end electronic drum set. Whatever your goals are, our drum teachers are here to help you and personalize a lesson plan for you.
All students at Cincinnati School of Music have the opportunity to perform in student recitals held 4 times a year, free of charge to friends and family. We can also help arrange other special performances in nursing homes, charity events, and dining venues.
