DMI Drum Teachers are Pros

Drum lessons are literally what the school was built on, and it’s our intention to keep that history alive by hiring only the best working pros in the Denver area to teach drums at DMI. From straight forward, back beat rock and roll (which is no where near as simple as it seems if you want to do it right!) to the most subtle nuances of world beats, and from full kits to hand percussion, DMI can get your chops trained in and shape for any musical goal!

When you factor in our workshops that facilitate all degrees of drum knowledge and practices in the music industry to our Master Classes and private and school recitals, DMI students will be best prepared for to apply their talents with any kind of performance group!

DMI has side by side drum lesson sets for more productive lessons!

Call us today to discuss lessons ~ also, be sure to ask about our live performance and studio recording workshops for drummers, Master Classes, guest artist clinics and more! These things, and so much, more are included in the package when you become a student at DMI.
