20 Minutes
Short and Sweet

Although our recommendations change from case to case, at Backbone Drum School we generally recommend 20 minute lessons for young children around the ages of 5-7. This is because the primary objective for students at this age is to develop a good relationship with the instrument and towards learning, without straining their ability to focus throughout the lesson.

30 Minutes

30 minutes is the most common lesson duration across all instruments. If the student is able to focus for this duration of time, then 30 minute lessons is usually the safest option regardless of skill level. 

60 Minutes

60 minute drum lessons are usually only recommended for adults or advanced students who are looking to take their drumming and music education to the next level. These type of lessons allow the teachers and students to cover a wide range of difficult or advanced topics in great depth. 


Lessons are individually tailored to the unique goals and needs of our students. Every lesson will cover important topics to drumming and music such as; technique, rhythm, rudiments, music theory and practical application. However, the time spent on each of these topics will vary depending on the differing strengths, weaknesses and ambitions of our students. 


Lessons can be scheduled with you or your child according to the following schedule:

Weekdays from 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Weekends from 9:00 AM 

If you’re interested in trying a lesson before making a commitment then please check out the free trial lesson page for details.


We understand that life gets in the way and sometimes you are unable to make your scheduled lesson. In the event that you are unable to attend a lesson, a minimum of 24 hours notice is required in order to be eligible for a make-up lesson. If 24 hours notice is not given you are still required to pay for the missed lesson.
