B2R drum students will acquire all of the skills necessary to be a successful drummer in a band. Drum lessons will focus on rhythm, coordination and stick techniques as well as complex skills such as four-way coordination and polyrhythms. There will also be an emphasis on ear training, through which students will learn to recognize drum patterns in popular music and other genres. Ultimately, students will develop a comprehensive understanding of the drummer's role in an ensemble and will be able to play with other musicians in a variety of styles. Since the drums are not solo instruments, it is very important for students to seek opportunities to play in bands or other ensemble settings – either within or outside of B2R. A drummer’s ability to meld musically with other musicians, while supporting them rhythmically, is critical and can only be learned by playing with others.
Small group (2 or 3-to-1) lessons in piano/keyboard, guitar, bass, voice, drums, woodwinds, brass and many more. Instruction is each week for 30 or 60 minutes. Recommended for children ages 7 and up. We also recommend registering two students for the same lesson type to ensure the lessons take place. Two students are required to schedule a semi-private lesson. We will make our best efforts to pair students that sign up individually but cannot guarantee the lessons will occur without a second student.
"You make learning my instrument fun and easy. John my drum teacher is always supportive."

"You have a brand new facility with state-of-the-art equipment, plus a convenient location. Our main experience has been with Josh, who has been a terrific teacher. My daughter has come a long way, reading music and playing the drums."
- X.T. from Manhasset
"My four year old son has been taking drum lessons for about five months and loves it! His instructor at Bach to Rock is very patient and knowledgable. My wife and I feel that our son has a natural talent for music and his lessons are helping him perform with more consistency and strengthening his ability. We are very pleased with our experience at B2R."

"Personalized nature of the private lessons and allowing the interests of the students to dictate the choice of music presented to them."
