Browse these drum lessons for kids with great ratings from Thumbtack customers in Saint Paul.
My first time using Thumbtack and it worked out great. Tim comes to the house every week and gives piano lessons to my grand kids. Nic was very helpful in assisting how to structure the lessons for three school-aged children. The kids really like working with Tim.
I am glad my kids had the opportunity to learn from Christian. He was patient and knowledgeable and worked at a pace that was perfect. It is obvious that music is a passion for Christian...his enthusiasm for teaching children music is a rare find! You won't be disappointed when you sign your kids up for lessons at this studio!
Alec has been giving my son drum lessons since Dec 2015. My son had some training and experience drumming, but after he started taking lessons with Alec, it was noticeable how much his drumming ability was improving. Alec is a great drum instructor and works really well with my son. He starts with where ever you are at and comes up with creative ways to improve your playing ability. I would highly recommend Alec as a drum teacher.
I took drum lessons weekly from Leon for about two years. He was great! I had a little background in drumming and I wanted to learn some of my favorite songs. He took the time to create music for those songs for me and was always prepared. He figured out what my weak points were and always had great exercises to break through my stuck points.
Ella is 14 a 14 yr old young lady who looks forward to going to her guitar lessons with Ric, she has never picked up a guitar before this. This is her 3rd lesson, but she has become more confident in who she is already. Even at school in her normal day she seems to have opened up more and not so shy. Ric is an amazing teacher, soft spoken, cheering her on, and is fun. Ella's words: Ric says "If i make a mistake i shouldn't stop and look back i need to just keep going forward" so that's what i keep doing until i get it right. Thank you Ric!! Rae, Mark and Ella Hansen
Both of my kids take lessons from Mike. He is an excellent teacher!!
John has helped me take my drumming to the next level. When I started lessons I was fairly new to the drum set and did not know how to read music. Over the past two years he has completely transformed me from a beginner to a gigging musician. John is patient, laid back and very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him to drummers of all skill levels.
My son, who was 10 years old at the time, took drum lessons from Craig for a school year. The only reason why we stopped was that we moved out of state. Craig was a terrific teacher and mentor. Clearly he knew music and how to teach it. He was very positive and encouraging, not to mention patient. His price was affordable and the cost of the material was reasonable as well.
Will is a versatile professional percussionist who happens also to be an exceptional teacher. For over three years, my 12-year-old grandson has been taking weekly drum lessons with Will and I have had the pleasure of sitting in on the lessons. I have, therefore, personally witnessed Will's talent in working with a young drummer. His collaborative approach puts the student at the center of the lesson, with Will providing skilled instruction on the intricacies of technique, introducing new styles of drumming, and continuously challenging his student to greater proficiency. The accent is always on the positive. I highly recommend Will for students of all ages. We have been so lucky to have him as an instructor for my grandson.
I've been taking drum lessons from Colin for a little over a year. He's knowledgeable, patient, reliable and personable. Highly recommend his service.
My two sons Benjamin and Jeremiah took private lessons from Charlie. My older son Benjamin was with Charlie for years and absolutely loved taking drum lessons from him. My older son is off to college now with a great foundation of knowledge of percussion/drum playing and reading music that will last a life time! My sons would come home after their lessons every week with "Hand Written" percussion notes/music to practice. And they "did" practice because Charlie gave them the incentive and motivation to "want" to be successful. My younger son also took lessons and thought the world of Charlie. He too will always be thankful to Charlie for his dedication and patients during his drum lessons and he will always speak highly of Charlie. I would highly recommend Charlie Engen for music/drum lessons because he is the best around! Sincerely Sue Melville
My son has been going to School of Rock at their Eden Prairie and Burnsville locations for almost five years. He started when he was 8 years years old and very much a beginning guitar player. His skills on the guitar sky rocketed with the combination of lessons and playing in show rehearsals with other kids. He now plays drums as well. I can't say enough good things about the the entire staff at School of Rock. From the location managers to the teachers to the show directors. Everyone has been kind and respectful to myself and more importantly, my son. Great work guys!
I can't imagine how much smaller my son's world would be if we had not met Peter O'Gorman. Peter took a shy, introverted boy and taught him poise and self confidence in just a few years. My son, Collin, learned not just how to drum, but how to cooperate, how to give and take, and how to enjoy music. After giving Collin years of drumming lessons, Peter set my son up with a jazz drumming professor and a Jazz drumming ensemble at college. Peter continues to reach out to my son and to work with him when school is out. Thank you, Peter, more than I can say, for changing Collin's world. Barbara May Attorney at Law
My son is really enjoying his drum lessons with Eddie and is excited each week. I am impressed with how much he has learned so far and looking forward to continuing.
During my lessons, Zach helped me work on my technique to get the most out of my drumming. I had never taken drum lessons before, but I wanted to learn. Zach was very patient with me. He did an excellent job at explaining everything and demonstrating proper drumming technique. Plus, he made everything fun and easy to understand. He would be a great teacher for beginner or intermediate drummers. Thanks again, Zach!
My son wanted to take bass lessons and after a quick google search I found Mr. Gilmore's website. His rates are reasonable and his resume is solid. My son really loves his patient teaching style and is quickly taking to the basics of both playing and music theory. I would highly recommend Hugh to anyone looking for a professional, patient and knowledgable teacher.
I've been taking drum lessons from Jeremy at Klash Drums for a year now and he is the best! I started as a beginnner and have made amazing progress. He lets me work at my own pace but also gives me a push when I need it. I can play lots of different rudiments and beats and have a great time improvising. I also bought my kit from Klash and and it's a great starter set with a number of excellent features, custom assembled to fit what I need. I'm not going anywhere else for lessons and, when I'm ready, I'll get an upgrade on my drum kit from there, too. Klash rocks!
This school has been amazing for our children. We have one in drums and one in guitar. They even enjoy practicing and look forward every week to the lessons. The individual attention and care is top notch. Highly recommend the school and the teachers we've had are Stan (guitar) and Kyle (drums).

My students regularly outperform their peers and are heavily represented in the top ensembles in their schools, as well as all-state programs. Also, by teaching lessons at the student's home, they are much more comfortable playing on their own instrument -- young drummers are all different shapes and sizes, and so are their drum sets.
