Instructor Jim Baird will take you on a healthy, self-entertaining, and fun musical learning experience on the drum kit. Jim is a long-time musician who will start you out by teaching you the rudiments on a snare drum followed by adding the hi-hats, kick drum, cymbals, and tom toms. Before too long you will be rocking along to your favorite songs, shuffling to the Blues, and swinging those drumsticks to the jazz beat. This is a hands-on class where you learn at your own pace. One-hour in-person or virtual class sessions are held at a mutually agreed time and are $30 each. Student requirements are a snare drum, stand, stool, pair of drumsticks, a sense of adventure, and a love of music. Note: This class is a private lesson between the instructor and the student online or in-person. Class not eligible for discounts. Students may sign up for multiple lessons.
