Private Lessons for Adults

Drums for Adults

The pulse. The driving rhythm. The backbone of the band. The drumset and percussion are vital to the energy and success of any band. Our Arts+ faculty will teach you how to shine as a soloist as well as provide that foundational rhythm that any group needs.

Pricing and Tuition

Through individualized instruction, our students master the basics of how to keep a steady and driving pulse then learn how to creatively fill that out into a richer and fuller sound. No matter your experience level, we will teach you how to become the best you can be — whether you’re just starting out or you’ve already mastered that paradiddle.

Our drumset students are part of our Rock and Blues Program, so you’ll get opportunities to perform in gigs all around the city. You’ll get out of the studio and learn what it means to be a performer by doing real performances in real venues.

Whatever your style and passion, we have a teacher for you:

  • Jazz
  • Pop
  • Rock
  • Indie/Alternative
  • Blues
  • And More!


Our lessons typically run on a semester basis, but you can start whenever. We will work to design a schedule that works for you.


​Lessons are taught at studios throughout Charlotte, from Davidson to Ballantyne. Scroll down the page to see our locations.
