"The harder they hit us, the louder we become, kind of like the skin on a drum."
- Michael Franti
Like all the other instruments drumming lessons here Lexington Music Academy are constructed for students as young as age 5 to adults (children are gauged for preparedness). there are multiple musical styles which each student will learn as the drums cover such a vast amount of genres being the backbone for any sound. These include classical, jazz, rock, Latin style plus others like country. Students practicing the drums find themselves to be a key piece in other students aspirations to start rock bands as well!
All students will go through a curriculum of learning to read and understanding music while developing their understanding for rudimentary drumming techniques and methods. The proper implementation of these persuasion techniques is key to the student's learning because wrists are susceptible to injury from improper training. Students will have the opportunity to practice their drumming skills in solo lessons as well as in group settings to later perform at recitals. We find the group performances do a better job at improving our student's skill progression.
During the complimentary introductory class students will be supplied with a drum set for playing, along with all the other necessary tools. As professional we encourage our students to practice on proper well tuned instruments for the best results, so we understand investing in a new drum set can be quite expensive but there are other alternative like drum rentals, finding and used set with all the major pieces then taking the time to improve its quality progressively adding more components (breakables, shells, extensions) as time goes on and the student becomes more confident in their skills.
At the Lexington Music Academy we train our students eyes, ears, hands, feet and minds to look at music from a much different perspective. When a student chooses to drum/ percussion lesson they will be paired with one of our talented master teachers who will give excellent direction on how to master this instrument.
