Drum Lessons in Dallas-Fort Worth

Drum lessons teach students the know-how of what it takes to be an accomplished drummer. In these lessons, students learn rhythm, which is the foundation of any good 

band. We also work on coordination and technique so our students can advance through many rudiments and polyrhythms.

Our goal is to have every drummer try our band program and learn other styles of music while performing. These opportunities are exciting for our students and help them see the benefit to practicing, as well as connecting with other musicians.

How Our Drum Lessons Work

Beginners in Our Drum Lessons Learn: 

  • Drum Lessons Creative Soul Music School Dallas-Fort WorthTo read drum tab, rudiments and technique
  • To play songs they love
  • To play songs, broken into parts, to simplify the song so students can accomplish their goals
  • Goal setting that is tailored to each student based on their unique set of gifts and talents
  • Songwriting and composition

From here, they can play in our group classes called our Student Bands. Performing as a group is an important part of the accountability process, as well as just having a blast.

In the past, there was a “no pain, no gain” philosophy regarding drum technique. But thanks to physical medicine and the study of ergonomics that philosophy is no longer valid with drum technique. Creative Soul instructors have been trained to use a contemporary technique that facilitates good development while playing all styles of music.




Performing What You Learn from Drum Lessons

Being able to perform is a big part of sharing a special skill that students have developed. It takes practice and we want to reward and recognize our students. We have free twice-a-year recitals for all of our students at such acclaimed venues like the McDavid Studio at Bass Hall and various other performance opportunities for our group class students at venues like the WoodShed SmokeHouse on the river, Central Market & TV-Famous Chef Pointe, for the students to jump into.
