Drum Lessons

Learn how to play the drums at Musical Expressions!Got rhythm? This is your place!

Our students learn how to play on a standard 5-piece drum kit and learn basic drum patterns, rhythms, and music notation.

As they improve, they will learn to rock out to tunes that are more complicated. This gives them the chance to use their favorite drum fills to their favorite artists and increase coordination. While learning to keep time, they also learn to read sheet music.

The opportunities are unlimited! Take percussion in any style including rock, pop, blues, R&B and jazz.

“I’ve been taking lessons with Ed [Breckenfeld] for about a year and a half. He always finds ways to challenge my abilities and keeps it fun by giving me new songs to learn each week. Ed is a great drum teacher. I really feel like he cares about my progress as a musician.” – Patrick B.

“Stephen has been a drum student with Ron [Spaeth] for several years. Ron has a great teaching personality and our son looks forward to every lesson. We will continue to recommend Musical Expressions to friends and family members.” – Christina G.
