OUR CURRICULUM

We believe that a concise curriculum is a key factor for effective learning. Our curriculums are designed specifically for each instrument and for all skill levels as well as being tailored to each individual student’s needs. It is just as important to have a solid curriculum for a beginner as it is for an advanced player.

You will find only top of the line drums, hand drums, cymbals, mallet instruments, and hardware for students to use. Each of our studios contain two complete drum sets (Yamaha, DW, Pearl, and Mapex), cymbals (Zildjian, Sabian, and Paiste), metronomes and click tracks, recording capabilities (students can have their lessons recorded) and a professional sound system.

The drum set curriculum is designed to develop coordination in conjunction with hand and foot techniques. This gives the student the ability to play various styles on the complete drum set.

This program develops the student’s knowledge of the entire drum set; we have classes available for ages seven through adult consisting of all skill levels. 

The snare drum curriculum focuses on all the techniques to develop reading, hand control, and the understanding of rudiments.

We also specialize with marching band and drum corps techniques.

The mallet curriculum helps the student develop all the various techniques needed for xylophone, marimba, vibraphone, and bells.

The hand drum curriculum focuses solely on hand drumming, teaching the student techniques and styles for various forms of hand drums from around the world including congas, bongos, djembe and doumbek, to name a few.
