Private Drum Lessons

Oregon Music Academy has you covered when it comes to learning to play the drums. Get started with private drum lessons on the snare drum or drum set or… join us for one of our group hand drumming classes on djembes, tubongos, and African drums. We’ll help you find a local drum teacher that is the perfect fit for you and your goals.

Beginning drum students taking private drum lessons in our Tigard location often start on a practice drum pad or snare drum. Even intermediate to advanced students can benefit from frequently reviewing the rudiments of drumming in this manner. When you eventually move up to drum set, having a firm grasp of these basics will make it easier to play more complex rhythms.
