Fully Individualized Drum Lessons in Relaxed Atmosphere

Although there are many self-taught drummers out there, the best way to learn how to play the drums is by taking lessons with drummers that are active in our music communities and know the benefits of proper training that can make all the difference in your music career.  We offer classes at our two studio locations in Long Island City, Queens, and in Greenpoint/Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York.

Since drums are almost always used in band and  ensemble situations, it is important for drummers to learn how to play music in a collective setting. It isn’t possible to be a solid drummer unless you know how to work well with other musicians, how to accentuate the form, or make space for the vocals or a solo. For this reason we provide opportunities for our drummers to work with other musicians at the many concerts, recitals and performances at our studio.  We aren’t satisfied unless we are offering you the best drum lessons NYC has to offer.

A member of the percussion group, drums are the world’s oldest and most ubiquitous musical instruments. Drums are often the heart of any music with a strong rhythm. Learning rhythm is certainly important, but we also train our drummers in all of the other elements of music such as melody, color, harmony, and form. We want you to be a complete musician, not a technician.

  • Sage Music School is the best choice I made for my daughters. I have three daughters playing three different instruments. They did an outstanding job in scheduling their music classes all at the same time. They also are very flexible with our classes. My girls enjoy practicing and always look forward to meeting with their wonderful teachers. The teachers are fantastic, patient and professional!
