Your child can comfortably hold a pair of drumsticks

Children may get frustrated if the sticks feel too big for their hands.

Your child has basic rhythmic ability

If you notice your kid is able to keep rhythm as they dance or play along to songs, then they have the basic rhythmic ability needed to learn an instrument.

Your child count to 16

When starting the drums, it’s important to understand drum notation – which uses timing and basic counting skills.

Your child is motivated to learn. 

If your child expresses interest in wanting to play the drums, then they probably are ready to take the next step.

Your child has the focus required for lessons

Sessions are 30 minutes long. Children that cannot hold focus for this amount of time may not be ready to begin lessons.

Your child has time in their daily routines to practice. 

Regular practice is essential to learning any instrument. Children with no time to practice will not see optimal results. It’s ideal for students to practice at least 5 days per week, 10 minutes per day.


If you’re not sure whether your child is ready for lessons, remember the first one’s free! One session is enough to determine readiness.
