Get Started


    Equipped with full-size acoustic drum sets, students at Gilbert School of Music can feel like real rock stars! Our instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues, and many other styles of drumming, and challenge every student with technical exercises specifically designed to improve their speed and comfort. Beginning students need only their drumsticks, and all that’s needed for practice at home is an inexpensive drum pad. Whether you want to be in your own rock band or play at church – Gilbert School of Music can help you reach that goal!

    Why take drum lessons?

      The drums can be a great stress reliever! While having fun making rhythms with all four limbs, the coordination between the fine and gross motor skills boosts brain development, having to use both sides of the brain.

We work with you to craft a lesson plan that fits your individual needs and the student's favorite type of music. Whether you're playing in local bands, a seven-year-old taking their first lesson, or a fifty year old returning to the drums after many years, we’ll set goals to achieve your musical aspirations.
