Van Tuyl Music Academy Is The Original School Of Rock In Huntington Beach

Whether you have a child that wants to learn to play drums or you’re looking for yourself, Van Tuyl Music Academy is the place for you. Our seasoned, professional drum instructors have experience with students of all ages and ability levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced.

VTMA is more than a school of rock for drum lessons, we’re an immersive, one-of-a-kind school that teaches you how to find your true voice and jam your heart out. Learning to play metal, pop, rock, blues, jazz and funk requires special training and technique. It isn’t just about playing the notes you hear, it’s about understanding what modern drummers have done to create that intoxicating tone we all crave to hear. Let our instructors show you the way.

Drum Lesson F.A.Q.’s

At what age is it appropriate to begin drum lessons?

Age 6 is when a child has developed enough physical size and dexterity to properly play the drums.

Do I need to own drums to take drum lessons?

Not at first. Most students can get started with a simple practice pad and pair of drumsticks. Our instructors can help guide you as to when the time is right to purchase a drum set. If you have any questions at all about what to look for we encourage you to call us at (714) 594-9853 or email us.

Are private drum lessons the only thing offered at Van Tuyl Music Academy?

Not at all! We also have Band Workshops for drummers of any age and ability level through our Performance Academy. For more advanced players that have taken drum lessons before or currently have a drum instructor, we have the ultimate performance experience for young players!

More About The Original School Of Rock Huntington Beach Drum Lessons Program

The drums can be one of the most fun yet most challenging instruments to learn. Most students find it very hard to balance their practice and focus between learning rudiments and playing the fun drum set grooves. At the Van Tuyl Music Academy School of Rock Drum Program in Huntington Beach, our goal is to find that balance for you. Any professional musician will tell you that a great band with an average drummer is an average band, but an average band with a great drummer is a great band. This is why a portion of each lesson is invested with a metronome learning stick control, hand coordination, and rudiments. However, the majority of every lesson is spent on the drum set learning beats, coordination, fills, and soloing. As always, students are invited to focus on whatever style of music they are most interested in, and learn as many songs as possible, but we always teach them to be well rounded in all styles so they eventually can learn to fuse everything together to create their own unique, exciting drum sound.

Taking drum lessons at Van Tuyl Music Academy is an experience unlike any other. Our facilities have clean rooms, the latest technology and a large music library. Since 2004, Van Tuyl Music Academy is Huntington Beach’s original school of rock, metal, funk, pop, blues, jazz and live performance for drum lessons.
