Drum/Percussion Lessons (ages 5-adult)

Drum Lessons at the Covington, Mandeville, and River Ridge Schools of Music & Dance

About the Drum Program:

Instruction in drums/percussion is available in all different styles such as jazz, latin, rock, and more! Beginning students will typically begin his/her studies with the snare drum and gradually work up to learning the full set. Intermediate and Advanced students will work from customized lesson plans to achieve weekly and long term goals.
Each program includes a weekly 30, 45, or 60 minute private lesson as well as 45 minutes of music theory class/assignment each week. These courses provide excellent reading (sheet music)/skill development as well as performance improvement for percussionists of any level.

Performance Opportunities for Drum Students:

All of our drum students have many opportunities to perform! Each year we hold recitals in June and December open to all students. Our drum students are also invited to participate in one of many jazz and rock ensembles at LAAPA! Catch one of our drummers performing below at a recent recital!
