Drum Lessons


At Lutherville Music School, every state-of-the-art drum lesson room is equipped with Roland digital or acoustic drum kits for our students. Our instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues and many other styles of drumming including mallet percussion, and challenge every student with technical exercises specifically designed to improve their speed and comfort. Beginning students need only their drumsticks and a notebook, and all that’s needed for practice at home is an inexpensive drum pad. Drummers are encouraged to bring in their favorite drum parts to learn. Many of our students are band members who play in local clubs and churches.
