Drum Lessons


"Providing students of all ages with the skills to enjoy music for a lifetime."


We teach private drum lessons for all levels, and students may add a Star Power Band for the ultimate music making opportunity.

Researchers agree that learning to play an instrument improves test scores, helps students with higher math achievement, builds self confidence, improves coordination and problem-solving, increases fine motor development and much more – including fostering the basic intrinsic value of developing a love and joy for the arts and music.

Performances are available for each level of study.

PLUS: Join our Practice Club with weekly prizes and chances to win a local area gift certificate twice each year.


Age groups offered: 1st through 5th graders

This class is geared towards students with little or no prior drumming experience through year-one players. We cover basics such as: holding sticks and striking a drum properly, basic coordination drills, easy rhythms, and playing as a group. Drums at home are not required, however a practice pad for home practice is helpful. Those with prior experience will be given more challenging rhythms and playing techniques. Every class features new rhythms and exercises and drills.

The class teaches students to play with confidence, in a group or as a soloist, and most of all the goal is to truly enjoy drumming, and learn about notation and rudiment patterns.

The class is designed for students to progress at their own pace.Wow Showcase Days for parents are scheduled throughout the year, and the teacher will assess the student’s progress and recommend private drum lessons at the appropriate time.

60 Minute Weekly Band Rehearsal

The Star Power Band Series at the Frisco School of Music is our best value, and a very unique and popular series. Students have their regular private drum lesson each week, plus attend a one-hour Star Power Band Class each week as well.

Star Power Bands are for beginners through advancing players on all instruments. Learning to play together as a team, mastering your part, putting it all together as a stage performance, learning about basic styles and forms is covered each week. Basic music theory concepts are also taught using examples from the songs the bands are playing. Students move ahead in their skill levels at their own pace, and the teacher assigns parts appropriate for each band member. Rock 'n Roll (classic and contemporary) and familiar classics.

Star Power Band Series students participate in all school activities including Shows, Concerts, Coffee Houses, Local Venues, Theory Test, Achievement Graduations, and more. Bands choose their Band Name and brand, and have their picture in the program booklet and posted at the School.
