Percussion lessons are open to children and adults of all skill levels. Children benefit most from starting lessons on the drum set starting at age 7 (sometimes students are ready at age 6). Students under age 7 that are drawn to drums may also enjoy a Creative Dance Class that includes organizing physical responses to musical cues. Piano is always an excellent foundation instrument, providing your child with basic musical knowledge that can later be applied to percussion lessons when the student is older.
Brookline Music School is committed to ensuring that students of all ages and abilities have a positive private lesson experience. Students are individually placed with a teacher based on learning style, experience, and musical interests.
Private lesson students also receive the benefit of multiple opportunities to perform in recitals, salons, exclusive departmental events, workshops, and masterclasses.
All students will need an instrument for home practice between lessons.
Our teaching tradition has been growing for almost 100-years, and BMS Online Learning continues to emphasize the importance of strong faculty-student interactions.

Studio classes foster community and comradery among students who are studying with the same teacher. During studio classes, participants have the chance to practice performing for one another, to share their process on specific musical projects, and to offer feedback and encouragement to their peers, in a supportive environment.
Students enrolled in private lessons at BMS have the opportunity to participate in exciting BMS-exclusive events including masterclasses, special recitals, Salons, Dynamic Duos, and more, at no extra cost. More information about events can be found here.
