Lessons are tailored to the studentís needs and desires. Typical curriculum includes rudiments, reading, beats, fills, songs, technique and tuning.

Lessons are conducted in a private teaching studio, outfitted with pro-level equipment: two full drum kits, lots of cymbals, double bass pedals, even cowbells and other percussion. We play wide open, no muffling, no pads - so we're able to address all the nuances of tuning, playing technique, dynamics and sound.

We can slow recordings down, without affecting the pitch, to a tempo that allows students to play along with songs. Then as students practice and improve, we can gradually increase the tempo, until the student is able to play up to speed. If you're not taking lessons at our studio, then you're not getting the most effective and efficient learning experience.

I have played guitar and bass for over 40 years. As a songwriter, I needed to learn drums for backed on my demo CD's. I called Bryan and explained my desires. He taught me to play all styles of music building from a foundation stick control basics, practice exercises, and positive motivation. The Drummers Den was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks Bryan!

My daughter has been taking drum lessons from Bryan for six years. He is a great teacher and keeps her motivated to learn new skills and techniques week after week. She is in high school now and her drumline just received their first drum caption of the marching band season. Bryan's dedication has paid foward through my daughter to her peers.

We have been customers of Bryan at the Drummer's Den for four years. We have purchased several drum sets at great prices. Bryan has a great selection of drums, sticks, heads and other stuff. Bryan has taught our son from beginner to expert and keeps him interested. We highly recommend the Drummer's Den and Bryan for all levels of drum lessons and for all your drum equipment needs.
