Learning the drums from home has become a reality for many over the past year, as we all adjust to a new normal. At Drum Ambition, we specialize in helping beginner drummers of all ages, and our 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 curriculum will give you a fantastic start to your drumming adventure, with access to full support as and when you need it.

Even before the events of the last year, 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 have not made up their mind if they want to take that step. Many students like to test the water before committing to a regular schedule and regular expense. Due to the recent pandemic, video lessons have been the main option for many new drummers, many of whom have been pleasantly surprised by how much they can do from home, with a structured curriculum, fun and engaging content, and support when they need it.
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 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 professional teacher can run from $40-$70 per hour, with many teachers offering 30 or 45-minute sessions.
Drum Ambition is different from many other online services, as our Founder is a Drum Educator with over 20 years of experience. Simon has routinely helped students of all ages and levels work towards their goals. 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. Even though the last year has made it difficult for in-person lessons, many local teachers have adapted their service to provide live online lessons. This is a convenient option and a great way to support your local teachers, as long as you know the possible limitations of these sessions.
Your teacher can add tremendous value, guidance, and friendship along the way and motivate you when you need a little extra direction. They may also recommend opportunities to play with other local musicians in your community and may even host additional educational events. 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.
