Drum Kit Lessons have been offered at ABC Academy of Music since 2007, and have been very popular.
Drums are an excellent way to build hand-eye coordination and are excellent for bringing structure to the brain through rhythmic exercises. Additionally, a large part of drumming culture is rooted in improvisation (in jazz, drum circles, etc.), which is an excellent way to foster creativity and imagination. Whether you are an adult or child, drum kit lessons are lots of fun, and you can play almost any style of music. You can play drums in classical music, jazz music, country music, rock music, R&B music, and pretty much anything else.
At ABC, we believe in giving you the best possible foundation so you can play all that you are interested in. For young and beginner music students, drum sticks, a practice pad, and a basic drum method book are all that you need. Parents will be relieved to hear that, as it will keep volume down!
As you develop, however, you will eventually need a snare drum, progressing to a full drum kit.
We will be happy to recommend a reliable retailer to set you up with the correct instrument for you.

What People Say About ABC Academy!
My son began guitar lessons at the age of 5, with all the attention span one might expect of a 5-year old. I’ve been so impressed with the patience and good humour his teachers have displayed! Now 7, Simon loves playing music, especially at recitals, and I am a very proud mum
I love being at ABC Academy, it really inspires me to learn more music. I enjoy the violin and I like my teacher. Everyone who works at ABC Academy is nice. Love it.
I’m 38 years old and I just started playing trumpet last summer. I’ve been studying with ABC the whole time and I have learned a ton, and had a great time doing it. My teacher is great and makes sure I work hard. Thanks to my teacher, ABC and the gang for making ABC such a welcoming place for an old dog like me to learn a new trick.
Awesome people and teachers. Strong programs. Fun teachers. Good hospitality.
This school has taught me a lot – like how to sight-read and most of the notes in half a season, and the teachers are really nice and understanding. I’m happy I chose this music school overall.
The teachers make sure you play the best that you possibly can.
I really like my guitar lessons and teacher. I say all this because I think that playing guitar is fun. Also, when things get hard, I keep on practising every day – Practice Makes Perfect!
“I would recommend ABC Academy for any student that wants to improve. I like it because I have improved my mark in Music at School.”
ABC Academy is great because of the personal, individual lesson, as well as working at your own pace. I wouldn’t want to learn anywhere else!
I take Vocal and Piano lessons with different teachers and I’ve learned so much. All the teachers are nice to me as they’ve gotten to know me, and they always encourage me to learn new things.
“I would like to thank ABC for making music so accessible for my three children, especially for the youngest one. They absolutely love their teachers and are learning quickly. I thought it would be harder to start piano and guitar, but ABC makes it simple.”
This school is awesome – there are nice and very helpful teachers.
I think this school is very creative!
Great Teachers, Friendly and real Professional.
“ABC has provided my three children more than a top quality musical education. The committed, kind, and talented instructors have contributed to their development as people.”
“The teacher is great – and I can see myself improving with each lesson.”
“Along with teaching her the discipline required to play an instrument, ABC has provided her with an atmosphere in which she has discovered an infinite joy and appreciation of music. By joining the Rock Band program this year, she has also learned to appreciate the importance of working, in harmony, with others. Most of all, ABC is a FUN place to learn. Many thanks to the teachers and staff.”
We wanted to expose our son to music and what we got from ABC is a highly educated teacher who is teaching our son to aim higher, be confident, and play beautiful music. Our son loves the school and we have been with ABC for 2 years.
