Highwood’s private drums/percussion lessons provide our students with a truly holistic musical education that includes both reading sheet music and playing by ear as well as skill development for playing in school bands or another goal you may have. Our students can also explore different genres such as jazz, rock, orchestral, musical theatre and virtually any style they are interested in studying. We are prepared to work at any desired speed and skill level that our students desire.

Lessons can focus on drum set, on concert percussion, or both.

Most often, private lessons are scheduled once a week for 45 minutes. However, we can also accommodate students wishing to meet more or less frequently or for 30 minutes/one hour.  Lessons can be scheduled during the school day for home schooled students or after school/on weekends and can begin at anytime during the semester.

The Fall Semester runs August 21 - December 21
The Winter/Spring Semester runs January 2 - May 25
