Drum Lessons & Practice Spaces

East Coast Drums offers private lessons, 7 days a week

Our Approach

You will learn from professional instructors, who play not only drums, but bass and guitar, and most play piano as well! This means you will not only learn to play drums but how to perform in concert with other instruments. You will learn to lead, follow and be a part of the bigger musical picture. Learning more than just drums, you learn to play music.

ECD drum lessons will teach you how to:

  • Lead and provide direction (your band looks to you for indication of where and when they are within the song)
  • Be the gate keeper (for timing and tempo)
  • Have discipline (to know when to “over play”, solo and use fills)
  • Be creative (being in one with the music, letting you individuality shine within the music)
  • Learn the music

Bonus: Our lesson rooms are equipped with multiple drum sets so not only can you see / hear the instructor play but he / she can see / hear you play for better understanding and a faster learning process.

Need a relaxing and private place to practice?

Our professional practice spaces are equipped with Pearl drum kits with monitors and can be rented by the day or hour.

* Lessons may be customized to cover theory, specific skill development, performance and music appreciation.
