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.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN AN INSTRUMENT?There is no set answer to how long it takes to learn an instrument. With regular practice a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons fun, rewarding, and engaging!
WHAT IF I DON'T OWN A PIANO OR OTHER INSTRUMENT?In order for you to get started right away with lessons it is important to have an instrument to practice on. If you don't already have a piano in your home, and are new to lessons, we recommend that you start with an electric keyboard. There are many options out there for keyboards, with a wide range of models and prices. You do not necessarily need a high-end keyboard to start. For woodwind and string instruments there are several rental companies in the area that allow you to rent your instrument on a monthly basis until you are ready to purchase one of your own.
DO YOU TEACH ADULTS?Allegro welcomes all adult students regardless of experience and ability from beginners to working musicians. Our teachers are delighted to work with students of all ages.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT MY FIRST LESSON?In your first lesson your teacher will take the time to get to know you and identify your goals and interests. They will make reccomendations on what learning materials you will need for your lessons and what level you should start at depending on your experience. Beginner students can expect to be able to play something on their instrument before they leave their first class!
