Why Learn with SoundLab’s Drum Teachers?

Have you ever noticed that the first musical instrument that babies seem to mimic is the drums? From an early age, toddlers pick up all sorts of household items and bang them around to create a noise and as they get older, this will turn into something that’s a little more rhythmic.

At SoundLab, we know that before you’ve even picked up your first stick that you’ll want to unleash the sounds that your favourite drummers are famous for, but to be able to do justice to these legends of the industry, you’ll first have to get the basics covered. Our drum lessons in Melbourne are structured in such a way that we’ll get you up to speed on how to properly play the drums in record time, and then we’ll get on to the sick stuff.

Whether you’re looking to walk in the footsteps of Ringo Starr or forge your own path with your own style, our passionate teachers are happy to let you run with whatever makes you the happiest.

Talking about our teachers…we have some of the coolest, most experienced musicians in the Melbourne scene ready to unlock the rock star in you. It doesn’t get much better when it comes to drum teachers in Melbourne and in your lessons you can expect to learn from caring and considerate leaders that are equally as passionate about teaching you as they are about ensuring you let loose and have as much fun as possible.

Ever see Dave Grohl behind the drum kit? That huge grin from ear to ear as he bashes out a solid foundation in Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters and Them Crooked Vultures? He looks like he’s having a blast, right?

Drumming can be fun, confidence-building, cathartic, empowering and exciting. Drums by their nature are meant to be heard in a group setting, which means being a drummer isn’t just about playing an instrument, it’s about being part of a lifestyle, a community and a musical family. Drumming is a great way to make new friends because every band needs a drummer, and there’s nothing like locking in with the rest of a band while you hold the entire song together. It’s also great for teaching focus, maintaining fitness, and bashing out some stress.

Why Do I Need Drum Lessons?

We want you to be a complete musician capable of being a key member of a band, not a just a technician who can play drums by themselves. And we want you to have fun while you do it! We know that some beginners can get bored with lessons if they can’t relate the exercises back to the music they love. We’re not gonna let that happen!

The SoundLab’s Drum Lab is decked out with state of the art Roland TDK-11kV electronic drum kits. Lessons are usually conducted electronically, but from time to time can be run acoustically on our Gretsch kits with Maple and Birch shells with Paiste and Zildjian cymbals. The electronic drums have mesh heads so they feel and respond just like acoustic drums, while the Jamhub setup we use means you can rock out as loud as you want in studio-quality sound right in your headphones or the Lab’s PA. Our Gretsch kits are ready to rock, so if you don’t have an acoustic kit at home you can still get a feel for how an acoustic kit feels and how it projects sound in a room.

What Can I Expect From The SoundLab Drum Lessons?

We know you want to play the songs you love – and we’ll make sure you get there – but it’s also important to know the basics. As a beginner at The SoundLab you’ll learn the fundamentals first to set you up with good habits for a lifetime of drumming. Once you have the basics locked in stone, you can begin to unleash your inner John Bonham, Lars Ulrich, Tommy Lee, Mike Portnoy – heck, if you want to be Ringo, we’ll help you be Ringo!

very in-demand. Just ask any local drummer how many bands they’re in! Hint: the answer is usually “A lot” or “As many as I want”.
