Drum Lessons


If you are considering taking drum lessons Music Royale has you covered. With six professional drum instructors, including two former drum professors at Ohio State University we offer something for everyone. Our large drum studios are outfitted with two drum sets, one for the student and one for the instructor as well as practice pads and a bell kit. All of our classes are one on one and the curriculum is customized to each student’s interests and abilities. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced drummer, we can help you reach your goals. Our instructors teach rock, jazz, blues, funk, latin and most other types of drumming. Many drum students have a hard time finding performance opportunities which is why Music Royale offers recitals, open mics nights and our very popular Rock School program to all our students. We believe that music is meant to be shared.

At Music Royale, we understand that life happens outside of music, which is why lessons are scheduled from month to month. Our rates are very competitive and there are no long term contracts to sign, so, if something comes up, you are not obligated to continue. We believe that anyone with a passion for music should have an opportunity to play, including students with physical disabilities or special needs.

Music Royale is a proudly independent music store owned and operated by local, professional musicians. We are located in Powell, Ohio at the intersection of Sawmill Parkway and Powell Road, just minutes from Columbus, Lewis Center, Worthington, Dublin and Delaware. We are easy to find and have plenty of parking.

Our lessons are customized to each student and we do our best to fit each student with the appropriate teacher. We believe this approach best serves our students and creates a fun and relaxed learning environment. Please contact us for teacher recommendations and available lesson times!
