Why Enroll In Drum Lessons At Kosha?

Expert Drum Teachers Who Care

It all starts with a drum teacher who can help you reach your goals. Firstly, our instructors have earned significant drum educations. We have college degrees, and in that process, we gained knowledge of music theory, drumming techniques, and how that applies to our students. Secondly, we’ve worked with drum students at every level. We can help beginners get started on the drums, take intermediate drummers to the next level, and coach advanced drummers as they prepare for shows and auditions. We also require each teacher to pass a background check – your safety is our first priority.

We Build Lesson Plans Around Your Goals

Our first priority when starting a new teaching relationship is to gather as much information from you as we can. Do you want your child to be a well-rounded musician who can apply his or her drumming knowledge to other disciplines? Are you an adult who wants to play in a band? Or do you like the drums, but you would like some guidance as to how you can use that skill?

Once we know what you want to get out of lessons, we can create lesson plans, introduce curriculum or exercises, and engage with the music that interests you. We want our students to become independent and fulfilled musicians.

What Genres Can You Learn in Our Drum Lessons?

We like to think of our lessons as genre-independent, but if you have a particular interest, please let us know! You will learn all of the rudiments of drumming, and they will apply seamlessly to rock, pop, jazz, metal, or other sub-genres.

We Start With the Basics

You will learn the different components of the drum set, how to hold the sticks, how to strike the drum with your left and right hands. We will also introduce you to the pedal, high hat, and more. The next step would be to play basic rhythms with backing tracks – you will play real music along the way, and if you have favorites, please let us know. We will also set you up with practice material to work on with your own time.

Your Progression To Intermediate Drumming Techniques

After we get the basic rudiments out of the way, we can progress to diddles and paradiddle, double stroke rolls, flams, drag riffs, and more. We will build on the initial rudiments you have learned, so you should be able to introduce new techniques every week if you keep practicing and following our guidance.

Advanced Drum Lessons in San Antonio

It’s always exciting when you have learned the basic rudiments of drumming – you are now ready to improvise your own fills, break into advanced grooves, play in mixed grooves, and sight read (yes, drummers have to read notes too!). Lessons may get more genre-specific at this point, and if you want to focus on jazz, fusion, or something else, speak with your teacher.

Hear From Our Students

“My son has been taking lessons with Michael now for about 6 weeks and already he is my sons favorite teacher thus far! Michael makes my life as a mom so much easier because he comes to our house. It’s so very convenient for us busy parents! My 11 year old son has learned a lot in this time from Michael and he tells me that Michael is extremely patient with him and he truly appreciates that. We are very satisfied with Kosha Music and highly recommend Michael!
