Frequently Asked Questions About Drum Lessons

Q: Do I need to buy a full drum kit to start?
A: No, the first few lessons can take place on a practice pad.

Q: Are electric drum kits better than acoustic for learning?
A: They’re certainly easier on the ears of the parents! As long as the snare drum on the electronic kit has a mesh head (which reacts more realistically to the sticks than a rubber electronic pad does) and the bass drum pedal is metal, not plastic, an electric kit is a perfectly good choice.
