We are in the process of starting our percussion studio and hope to have lessons starting soon! To be notified of when percussion lessons are available, please fill out our notification form:

Ages: 8-17 and Adults
Length: 30-, 45-, 60-minute
Meets: Weekly, scheduled individually

All percussion lessons are taught as private, one-on-one music instruction and are available in lengths of 30, 45, and 60 minutes each week. We suggest kids and teenagers begin with 30-minute lessons and progress to longer lengths as your teacher recommends. For students who have previous experience, we recommend starting with 45- or 60-minute lessons.

We have an electronic drum kit and practice pad to use at your lessons, so while your teacher will recommend the instruments you need to practice on at home you won’t have to transport them to lessons.

Since everything is a drum to younger children and percussion doesn’t require such fine motor skills it’s a great instrument for younger children getting started in music education. We accept percussion students as young as 6 years old and our teachers make learning fun and engaging for young students with musical games, exercises, and songs written specifically for smaller hands.

All students new to lessons will begin with fundamentals, such as counting rhythm, music reading, and technique, while intermediate and advanced students will work on more advanced music and exercises. For older kids and teenagers, our teachers often mix in fun repertoire and songs to keep them engaged with percussion lessons.


We love adult students!

Baltimore School of Music is one of the few music schools in the country who specialize in teaching adult students, so whether you are ready to play percussion for the first time, would like to relearn skills you learned as a teenager, or are a professional musician interested in advancing your technique, you are welcome here.


Baltimore School of Music carries a limited selection of music lesson books and accessories for the convenience of our students.
