The VMS Drum Lesson Advantage

From rudiments to professional application, learn percussion for marching, concert and jazz bands or play drum set or even electronic drums for a different feel.

We welcome and encourage all playing styles – rock, funk, jazz, blues, gospel, Latin and more! We have two identical drum sets side-by-side, so you and your teacher can play at the same time. Learn to improvise, mimic good posture and form, and even learn about drum handling, set up, and tuning.

VMS  instructors are highly skilled players with music degrees and extensive professional performance, touring, and recording experience. A well-rounded, highly trained, and experienced teacher can provide a much deeper understanding of each students’ needs and concerns. All are devoted to the progress of their students. Lessons are customized to fit the interest and learning style of each student.

VMS students and parents may log in to the VMS student portal to track assignments and teacher notes for every lesson. Additionally, younger students may opt to enroll in the VMS Juniors Program. It’s a proven curriculum designed to inspire students to practice more while enhancing their love for music. Using check up tests with leveled prizes, it’s effective, free, and available through any teacher for any lesson.

Take what you learn in your lessons and expand!  Record in our state-of-the-art studio, or join a band or combo! Extend your learning in various ways as you grow into the player you have envisioned. No other studio can offer all these valuable experiences for students under one roof!

Every 6-8 weeks, every student has the option to perform in front of an audience. All students are welcome, and participation is encouraged but always optional.

A wide variety of producers, organizations, event organizers look to us to find talent. Through VMS, find out about auditions, performances, and contests for local, regional, or national events.

What our Have To Say...

FAQ for Voice Lessons

Your first lesson will allow the teacher to assess and discuss readiness.  He will offer suggestions for effective entry into lessons.

No, you don’t need to have a drum set to start. Practice pads will be fine at home, and your teacher will discuss what is best for you to purchase as you progress through your lessons. If sound and space is a problem at home, you can rent a VMS drum studio room to practice! Call a VMS office admin for more information.
