Our online video drum lessons have been designed to walk you through the important early steps of learning the drums. Our goal is to give you the experience of a one-to-one drum lesson, which can help you decide whether you would like to work with a local drum teacher. Our content will give you months of guided practice, with access to full support as and when you need it.
Drum Ambition was created for the many aspiring drummers who may not have geographical access to a teacher, cannot fit regular lessons into their busy schedule, may not be able to budget for a teacher at this time, or who simply have not made up their mind if they want to take that step. Many students like to test the water first, before committing to a regular schedule, and regular expense.

A huge benefit of working through our curriculum before engaging with a teacher is that you will already have covered many essential topics in advance, and will have a great head-start. That will save you both time and money, as well as providing a solid platform from which to build your drumming skills.
Depending on where you are located, drum lessons with a Teaching Professional can run from $40-$70 per hour, with many teachers offering 30 or 45 minute sessions. Drum Ambition is different to many other online services, as we actually run a bricks and mortar teaching studio in San Diego. We routinely help students of all ages and levels work towards their goals, and so it goes without saying that we absolutely promote the value of working one to one with a local drum teacher who can fine-tune the experience, and help you through the ups and downs that come with learning any instrument.
Your teacher can add tremendous value, guidance and friendship along the way, and motivate you when you need a little extra direction. Your teacher may also be able to recommend opportunities to play with other local musicians in your community, and may even host additional educational events. At our own studio, we often bring in guest professionals to do educational performances - we call these Drum Clinics. In the last few years, we have featured Thomas Lang, Gregg Bissonette and Rich Redmond. Working with a teacher is a great opportunity for you to become more involved in your local drum community, and that can lead to some fun times, and great friendships.
When you are ready to work with a teacher, Drum Ambition can help you find a good fit with our free member service, Drum Ambition Connect™.
