Why Should You Take Drumming Lessons?

Learn Techniques

Learning new techniques is all part of learning how to play the drums - and this is much easier with a teacher to help as they can show you the proper gripping techniques, the arm and leg motions and more - they are especially capable of picking up on any mistakes that you may make. Good drum teachers are continuously aware of their students’ technique.


Knowing that you are working towards something each will the week be a motivation to keep going, as you will be encouraged by your teacher ensuring that you are taking the right steps to becoming an experienced, talented drummer. Whilst this is not the primary reason to take drum lessons, it can work two ways, you will become a more disciplined individual however you will also build up self-esteem with the positive attitude from your teacher who will ensure you are taking steps forward instead of back.

Reduce Stress

When you see someone really rocking out whilst playing the drums, it may seem like they are angry, however, studies have shown that playing the drums can relieve frustration, stress and disappointment. Just like most musical performances, drummers’ brains release feel-good endorphins immediately after playing music, it is not the instrument itself it is the performance and the feel-good factor it produces.

All seven of our stores offer drum lessons, your first lesson is FREE as a trial to show how fantastic our teachers are. From here you can decide whether you would like to book further lessons.
