My 3 kids and I have been with Dark Mountain Music for almost 2 years now and absolutely love it! I'm always referring friends so I figured it's about time I left a review! lol The instructor is amazing and makes each lesson engaging and enjoyable. We take singing, piano and guitar lessons. Plus most recently music production. It's great that we can add or change instruments as we go without having to change studios or companies etc.. because they teach them all here. I also like that he comes to us for lessons instead of me having to drag my kids around. Super convenient that way. I've heard from many friends who are with other companies, that their younger kids don't enjoy piano lessons cause they're forced to work on classical music, but you get to play what you love here. You pick the songs to work on. Like my boys are learning video game music and current alternative music. Which is really cool to see and hear converted to the piano. I can't ever see us leaving Dark mountain music!

I have been taking singing lessons with the absolutely amazing Julia for almost a year now and my experience has been wonderful! Julia is a fantastic teacher. I have grown so much in my time with her and I'm looking forwarded to continuing to push my vocal boundaries with her help. I recently started piano with her as well and I'm loving every minute. Julia is professional, patient, and most importantly, inspiring. My lessons are my favourite day of the week.

Julia is so great! As an adult learner I was worried about not being quick like the kids. Julia is very patient with me and if she's frustrated she never, ever shows it!! Daniel runs an excellent business. Very professional and quick, open communication. 10/10 recommend.

I LOVE Dark Mountain Music! I get to see Julia for voice lessons and she has helped me so much with my confidence and ability to sing again! I had taken a year off from singing due to health related things and I was definitely nervous to start again but she was so kind and encouraging and made it a very fun hobby for me to enjoy again! Thank you Julia!!

Do I need to own a drum set before starting lessons?

For in-home or online lessons, owning a drum set is required, as our instructors don’t travel with kits. However, if you’re taking lessons at the instructor’s studio, it’s highly recommended to have one for practice between sessions. We’re here to assist you in finding affordable options for purchase or rental to suit your needs and budget.

Can I choose the style of drumming I want to learn?

Absolutely! We encourage students to explore a wide variety of drumming styles, including pop, rock, jazz, funk, blues, Latin, and more. Our instructors have been teaching music for years in a wide range of genres and will customize the curriculum to align with your musical interests and goals.

Whether you’re a beginner or have some experience, we’re dedicated to helping you excel in your chosen style of drumming. Feel free to choose the genre that inspires you, and we’ll support you every step of the way on your drumming journey!

Do I need any prior musical experience to start drum lessons?

No prior musical experience is needed to start drum lessons with us. Whether you’re a complete beginner or have had some more advanced drum lessons before, our experienced instructors will guide you through the basics of rhythm, coordination, and technique at your own pace. With our clear instruction and support, we can help students of all ages and skill levels begin their drumming journey confidently and enthusiastically.

How do I know if the drums are the right instrument for me?

When it comes to picking the right instrument for your music lessons, your passion and interest should be at the top of your list. While natural talent can be beneficial, it’s not the sole determinant of success or enjoyment. With dedication, practice, and enthusiasm, anyone can develop their skills and excel at drumming. Don’t let concerns about natural talent hold you back if you feel a strong pull towards the drum kit, even if you haven’t started playing!

IMPORVED COORDINATION

Drumming is all about nailing the coordination between your hands and feet, which amps up your motor skills, dexterity, and hand-eye coordination. With those rhythmic beats and moves, drummers level up their physical control and agility big time!
