DRUM SET AND PERCUSSION LESSONS
Our drum instructor Scott Shafer is a Berklee School of Music Alumni and our other drum instructor Darryl Pellegrini is a Grammy Award nominated drummer who has a Master’s Degree from Manhattan School of Music. These highly qualified and experienced instructors will guide you through a step by step process. Students will know exactly what to practice at home each week and will have the resources and support they need to do attain proficiency over time. We have a double drum set setup in our studio for drum lessons as you can see in the photo which is very convenient so that the instructor and student don’t have to keep switching places and is especially good for social distancing during the pandemic. Drum Lessons revolve around the fundamentals of modern drumming, technique, rhythm and reading music notation through a variety of exercises such as paradiddles, drum beats, songs and transcriptions. With some daily practice at home, students will gradually progress through the levels as they gain confidence and proficiency with the instructors weekly assignments and goals that are easily attainable with at least some daily practice at home. Drum lessons are for adults and kids and you don’t need any previous experience to start. Students should be at least age 6 to start although you can always take a trial lesson just to try it and see.
