OUR DRUM LESSONS
COMBINING PROGRESS & PASSION FOR THE DRUMS

Drumming requires more than intuition for melody — it’s a high-energy instrument that encourages the shoulders down to the fingers, and even the legs. And the beats it produces set the rhythm for the entire song. It’s no wonder that drums are a favorite among enthusiastic students.

However, there’s a lot more that goes into drumming than banging and clanging. Students learn the different types of drums and the nuances in the sounds they produce. They master the gripping technique, strokes, and basic drumbeat.

Liberty Music Academy introduces your child to this vibrant side of music. Not only do we hone their drumming skills, but we also instill the discipline to stay on the beat and follow the rhythm. More importantly, we keep lessons fun. Music class is supposed to be enjoyable; that’s why every drum lesson we conduct in Texas is tailored to your child’s learning curve.

Happy Drummer
 
QUESTIONS ABOUT DRUM LESSONS

Is there a proper age to start learning the drums?

You’ve probably seen toddlers smashing drums even before they say complete sentences, but while there’s no blanket requirement to learning an instrument, we recommend starting at around six years old. This is when they have the mental focus and attention span to follow drum beats.

Why should I start early?

There’s evidence that it is easier to learn something new — like playing an instrument or speaking a different language — while people are young. However, this isn’t the reason we recommend starting early. At Liberty Music Academy, we want our students to learn discipline, develop patience, and establish self-confidence at an early age by learning an instrument.

DRUM LESSONS FOR BEGINNERS

Liberty Music Academy offers beginner drum lessons to students in and around Collin County, TX under our seasoned instructors; watchful eye.

TECHNIQUE

Improper technique can lead to bad habits that hold students back. We teach your student how to sit correctly at the drums and how to position their hands, wrists, and fingers.

MUSIC THEORY

A major part of becoming a complete musician is a thorough understanding of music theory.  In each lesson, new musical concepts are taught that help to propel your student forward.

NOTE READING

Your student will learn to read music notation and follow the notes on the  staff. Once they learn the ropes, they will be able to learn any song they desire.

REPERTOIRE

Together with their instructor, your student will go through repertoire in their lesson books, which they will practice weekly. Every four months, their hard work will culminate in recital performances.

Frequently Asked Questions...

Why should I start my student early with drum lessons?

There’s evidence that it is easier to learn something new — like playing an instrument or speaking a different language — while people are young. However, this isn’t the reason we recommend starting early. At Liberty Music Academy, we want our students to learn discipline, develop patience, and establish self-confidence at an early age by learning an instrument.

What are the lesson rates for my student? 

Our lesson rates just really depend on the needs of each individual student. Whether you are looking for 30 or 60 minute lessons, in-home or online, etc. We highly recommend contacting our office to learn more, and or registering your student for a trial lesson. This will allow all students and families the opportunity to gain more information, an idea as to whether or not music lessons are something they like and or want, with no obligation to continue lessons on a weekly basis. 

On which days can I schedule my weekly lessons? 

We do our very best to accommodate all of our student's schedules. If you are a new student without a current schedule, you can contact our office and get your lessons booked on a schedule that fits you best. If you are a current student needing to switch your schedule, you can either contact our office to make the adjustment or discuss the available options/availability with your teacher.  

How does payment work? Am I required to sign a contract?

We focus on making payment as convenient and accommodating as possible for all of our students and families. All billing is done on the 1st of every month. When students join our academy in the middle of the month, we do prorate lessons for the remainder of the month. There is a one-time $30 registration fee per family, and the best part...no contract or commitment. All we ask is that you provide us with at least 30-days notice prior to cancellation. You can complete this form on our website. 

How long should my student be practicing daily/weekly?

Practice time should not be measured by how long a student is practicing, but instead measured by how productive a student is during their practice time. If a student a playing a song over and over for 2 hours without breaking measures down and fixing errors, their practice could be doing them more struggle and frustration than productive help. Additional questions about practice should be discussed with your student's teacher/instructor. 

What happens if I can't make my scheduled lesson?

At Liberty Music Academy, we know things happen! For this reason, we do provide make-up lessons/credit for students who miss a scheduled lesson. In order to receive a make-up lesson, we just ask that you notify our office/teacher about your absence at least 24-hours in advance. If a make-up lesson becomes unavailable, you will be credited for the upcoming months' lessons.
