Become the drummer everyone wants to play with.
Develop the skill to play with anyone, at any venue, in any rhythm, and any style. That’s why we exist: to prepare you to work as a musician. And our method works. We’ve been one of the top choices for drummers looking to take drum lessons and expand their skills for forty years.
We’re only for passionate players.
The Drummers Collective will be an intense experience. We have high expectations of our musicians. But if you love your instrument, and you’re willing to work hard in drum lessons and other classes, you’ll leave here with abilities that will impress.
One of the things that makes us different is our teachers. They’re all experienced musicians. Since our classes are small, you’ll get individualized attention and instruction. And this is more than just drum lessons. You’ll also play in ensembles with faculty. That means you’ll be challenged to rise to their level, and you’ll grow accustomed to playing with the best.
Evening programs and private lessons are available also.
