Drum Lessons



We teach a variety of styles, from classical to rock to popular music.  The important thing is that you learn to play the music you love!  Our teachers are patient, fun, and creative in their approach to teaching drum lessons.  They will teach you the fundamentals of rhythm, sight reading, technique, improvisation, and music theory, all while incorporating your favorite songs into your lessons.  We teach children, teens, and adults, and personalize each lesson to meet your goals.

Daily practicing is one of the key elements in making musical progress. Too many music teachers make the assumption that, somehow, students know what to work on and how to go about it. Your lessons will include instruction in how to practice effectively, using methods that keep your practice time interesting.  You’ll want to have something to practice with at home in between your lessons.  You can use an electric drum set at home, an acoustic set, or drum practice pads.  Talk with your teacher about what is best for you!

Student recitals are held twice a year. There are no recital fees; these are free opportunities to build confidence, learn performance techniques, and be inspired by other musicians. Recitals are optional but highly recommended; please bring your family and friends to cheer you on!

We know you are busy, so we offer a wide variety of drum lesson times.  You can take lessons in the morning, on your lunch break, while the kids are at school during the day, or in the afternoon or evening after school.

The Academy does not require semester minimums for drum lessons.  Every student here is on a month-to-month basis.  We have rolling admission, so you can begin lessons anytime.  If you are ready to start, you have nothing to lose!  We only want students who truly want to be here, and we will not commit you to a long-term contract.


There are three different options for music lessons at Loveland Academy of Music:

  • 30-minute private music lessons once a week are recommended for children through adults. ($25.00/week, monthly rate)
  • 45-minute private music lessons once a week are recommended for more serious students, children through adult. ($37.50/week, monthly rate)
  • 60-minute private music lessons once a week are recommended for serious students, teen through adult. ($50.00/week, monthly rate)

We invite all new students to schedule a time to tour our school and register.  This time is used to get to know the student, find out their interests and skill level, register, and discuss a plan of action.  There is a one-time registration fee of $25 (check or cash).

All charges are made with automatic electronic payments.  Pre-authorized credit, pre-authorized debit, or auto draft are required.  Your information will be kept private and secure.  This system ensures efficiency, peace of mind for you, and one less thing you have to think about!

Our monthly tuition is all-inclusive!  You don’t have to worry about hidden fees.  Admission is FREE for our recitals, with no participation fee.  We offer FREE picture day with a professional photographer, FREE inclusion in our Musical Ladder program, FREE parent portal to keep you involved, FREE master classes so you can make music with other students, and much more!

Lessons are offered first come, first served.  Lesson spots are limited, so call today to reserve your time!
