Playing the drums offers many benefits, including the improvement of hand-eye coordination and strengthening the structure of your brain through rhythmic practices. Drumming also offers a wonderfully creative outlet, as it is largely based on improvisation.  

The drums are an incredibly diverse instrument, allowing one to explore a variety of music types. Drums are found in genres such as rock, classical, jazz, country, R&B and many more. Students will not be limiting themselves to a single musical style when they learn to play the drums. 

Allegro offers lessons for acoustic drums, electric drums and practice pads. We will cover all aspects of drum playing — including warmups, rhythm exercises, reading notes and performance skills. 

Whether you are looking to learn a new skill, brush up on your old talents, jam out with your friends or become an international rockstar, Allegro Music School can help. Find out more about our drum lessons near you.
