Drum Lessons In Vancouver

March to the Beat of Your Drum

At Horizon, we have our own big “bang” theory: You don’t have to be the second coming of John Bonham to learn how to play drums. Everyone has a unique rhythmic style that’s worth exploring and developing – let’s discover yours today!

Private Drum Lessons for Adults

Horizon School of Music is located in the heart of Vancouver, BC, offering easy access to transit and gritty views of the cityscape. It’s a friendly safe space with plenty of natural light designed to inspire percussionists of all levels. But if you prefer working on your licks, fills and chops from the comfort of home or if your location/schedule doesn’t permit in-studio lessons, we offer remote tutorials via video chat platforms. Whatever setting works best for you, works best for us.

Learn with the Best

Our team of highly skilled drum teachers are widely considered the very best in Vancouver. They are just as passionate about teaching percussion instruments as they are about playing percussion. Backed by years of stage, studio and classroom experience, our titans of tempo use proven instructional strategies and a positive approach that help students make continuous progress and reach their full potential. Come meet your new beat master today and get inspired!

Schedule at Your Convenience

At Horizon, our goal is to make percussion lessons accessible to everyone, regardless of how busy they are with work, family and other commitments. That’s why we offer a flexible, stress-free scheduling platform that allows students to confirm, cancel and reschedule lessons as they see fit. No commitment, no contract, no getting locked into the same allotted time week in, week out – just the freedom and joy that comes from finding your groove on your own timeline.

Personalize Your Goals

To ensure every student gets the support and instruction they need to meet his/her particular goals, Horizon offers complimentary consultations. Our drum instructors are experts at tailoring their teaching methods to help develop individual rhythmic styles. Whether you’re already a powerhouse of percussion but want to finesse your fillers, or you’re a beginner who’s never sat behind a kit and wants to learn the basics of beating the skins, we got you covered!

And for students wanting a taste of several rhythmic styles, our teachers are well-equipped for that too.

Kris started as a guitar teacher and ended up a friend. I couldn't have learned guitar from a better person. His enthusiasm, never mind unbelievable talent make guitar learning a joy..

Paul Newton

Our kids are hard to please- but the style and attitude of the group is so unique and engaging that our kids ask to go back. It’s a pleasure to watch them enjoy music and have fun with it while they learn. We highly recommend this school.

I have the great fortune of being taught by Kris.. and catapulted me into a whole new level with no limit in sight! I have taken lessons from other teachers there as well and they are all phenomenal.
