    Private drum and percussion lessons

Private lessons are available in all areas of music and speech instruction for all ages and levels of development by highly qualified professional teachers and performers with real-life musical experience.

About percussion

Percussion is more than just drums. The Conservatory is delighted to offer percussion lessons for those interested in finding their rhythm and walking to their own beat.

Student lessons include the standard drum kit but may be expanded to include mallet percussion, timpani, multiple percussion, and orchestral percussion. Instructors are paired with students based on their desired goals whether those include playing casually, in a rock band or an orchestra.

About our private lessons

New students must complete an online lesson placement request form. Conservatory staff or your assigned instructor will contact you directly to assist with your placement for the term.

When choosing a private lesson, you will need to consider:

  • number of lessons
  • length of lesson
  • what time of day you prefer 
  • which day of the week you prefer 

The average instruction per term (fall, winter or summer) is 16-18 hours.

The general rates for private lessons are 30 minutes for $39.50, 45 minutes for $59.25, 60 minutes for $79.00.  Rates may vary depending upon the instructor and duration of lesson.
