Drums

Learning to play the drum can be a very rewarding process. We offer private drum lessons, sheet music for drums, drum accessories, and more. If there’s anything we don’t have, we can usually order it and have it for you pretty quickly.

About our Drum Lessons
You work with the teachers to learn what YOU want to learn — whether it involves learning to read sheet music, play better with tabs, drum rolls, playing solos, jamming, or playing in a certain genre, like rock, jazz, or blues. Students should be at least 5 years old, due to the finger strength required to properly press down the strings on the fretboard. Lessons are typically 30 minutes, at a set-time each week for $20 (click here for more options). For more about our lessons, view our Lesson Info page and our FAQ.

About our Drum Teachers
Darryl Purvis, one of our first and most popular teachers, has been teaching piano for over 10 years, and drums for 12. A church pianist for the past 15 years and dedicated family man (with many adopted children!), Darryl connects with students of all ages and backgrounds. A native of Chicago, Darryl has played a wide variety of styles, and is very adept at teaching students to play by ear, as well as through reading formal music.
