If you are looking for great drum instruction, you have come to the right place. Our drum instruction is built upon the same curriculum as North Texas State, a school renowned for producing great drummers. Beginner to advanced, all levels are accepted.
From the amazing grooves of the James Brown drummers to swing era and latin, we cover it all. Task oriented and result driven.
Drummers are the greatest! No doubt about it. They are the driving force of rock, funk, jazz, latina, rhythm and blues and more. Hard to imagine any of these genres without drums.
Our drums lessons are broken down into 3 major groups and follow North Texas State curriculum:
Snare drum work: Ted Reed-Syncopation, Lawrence-Stick Control, Podemski-Snare Drum Method, Joe Morello- Master Series, Ed Thigpen-brushes
Drum Set: Ed Soph- Essential Techniques for Drum Set, Peter Erskin- Drumset Essentials, Vol 1,2,3
Groove: Alan Dawson-The Drummer's Complete Vocabulary, Stanton Moore- Groove Alchemy, John Riley- The Art of Bop Drumming.
Jamming with fellow students and instructors is big part of what we do at HMA. Check schedule for jams
