Drum lessons are fun for students at Arlington Heights Music Academy! Our teachers are friendly and patient. Each teacher possesses a university degree and a variety of skills so that each student can progress from beginning to advanced instruction with the same teacher, creating a lasting bond and mutual understanding that can help the student learn in the best way possible. Students will gain an understanding of music theory and technique on their chosen instrument. Our teachers base the lessons around the needs and goals of each student. Once the basic skills are in place, drum students can learn a wide variety of skills applicable to multiple genres of music.


We keep students interested in their lessons through a combination of incentives, performance opportunities, and making lessons fun with the use of games that teach as well as entertain. All lessons include the opportunity to win weekly prizes and end-of-year medals through earning points based on at-home practicing. Students are also given the chance to compete in music festivals and theory tests to further increase their musicianship. We also provide three recitals per year as an opportunity for the student to perform! The recitals are a wonderful way for the student to share with his or her family the skills they have learned, as well as having the chance to hear the performances of other students.


The benefits of learning and instrument are lasting – experts agree that learning to play an instrument improves test scores, fine motor skills, self-confidence and problem solving, as well as fostering a love and understanding of the art of music. Learning to play the drums is a skill that can enrich a student’s life for years to come.
