I studied drums with Brian…by the end of the first practice I was behind the kit, holding down a beat. It was amazing! …he taught me exactly what I was hoping to learn which I really appreciate. I would definitely recommend [Sage Music] if you are looking to play the drums.

“I had my first Violin lesson [online]…with Jeremy and it went very well. I felt very comfortable with him and his style of teaching left me feeling encouraged and with the sense that I have come to the right place for real growth in my violin playing. I’m excited and looking forward to my next lesson.”

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!.”

Personalized Drum Lessons in Relaxed Atmosphere

We customize our drum lessons just for you. We’ll start by setting your goals. Then we’ll create custom lessons based around what you want to learn.

Our trained teachers have the skills to get you playing any music you want. Plus they will teach you how to practice, so that you can make the most practice on your own.

But very few drummers play solo. And for that reason we also host our weekly rhythm class, open mics, recitals, and more. That will give you the opportunity to meet other musicians like you, and play music in a group setting.

Our drum lessons are taught in properly sound proofed and sound treated rooms. This will make is easy and comfortable to hear when you practice, all without hurting your ears.

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.

Online Drum Lessons

Unable to make it in to Sage Music? We can help.

We currently have students who fly from Washington, Texas, and Florida to take lessons at our award winning school. But we realize that not everyone can get to us. So we now offer drum lessons online for those students who are far away and won’t settle for less than a Sage education.

Other students are worried about the current health concerns, but still wish to avoid putting their life on hold.

Either way, you can benefit from the Sage Music Online. Unlike other online programs, you’ll get the same great faculty and community that you’d otherwise get at our many school locations.

  • Take music lessons with us from anywhere in the world!
  • Enjoy your progress from the security of your own home

  • Enrolled students get a free enrollment into our flagship course, The Sage Student ($549 for non students) so that you can learn how to master any music you wish
  • Benefit from the expert guidance of our professional, knowledgeable, trained and supervised Sage Music Teachers

I had my first lesson via Skype with Jeremy Roberts today and it went very well. I felt very comfortable with him and his style of teaching left me feeling encouraged and with the sense that I have come to the right place for real growth in my…playing. I’m excited and looking forward to my next lesson. Now it’s time to enjoy and get to work on my homework. Perfect practice makes perfect with Sage.”
