Never Played Before? Our Group Class Will Guide You.

drum lesson gift certificates

Picture this. You grab your sticks and sit down behind the drum set. As you start to play, the world around you and all it's stress begins to drift away. You close your eyes and play your favorite beat. You're in the zone; just you and the groove. When the trance breaks, you look at the clock and realize that you’ve been playing for an hour. How did that happen? It felt like just a few minutes!

That's what playing drums is like! It’s meditative and fun. Now, you might be thinking, “That sounds great, but I can’t do that. I don’t have any talent and I have no idea what to do.” Well, you may not know what to do, but you don’t need talent. All you need is the guidance and practice. You CAN play drums, and we can help.

In fact, at BANG! The Drum School, we’ve helped hundreds of new drummers just like you learn to play. One of the ways we do that is with our Absolute Beginners Group Class. In the class, you’ll meet other aspiring drummers and get all the information you'll need to begin drumming the right way right away! We’ve done all the research; we’ve written the book (which you get to keep for free); all you have to do is show up and learn.

Right now, you can sign up for March classes: The Saturday afternoon session has only 1 spot left (and is on SALE!) and the Wednesday group has just 2 spots left, so hurry--these classes sell out! Click the button below for more information, dates, and to sign up.



Welcome to NYC’s #1 Drum Teaching Studio…Where Drumming is Joy!



Upon opening In 2009, BANG quickly become known as NYC's most welcoming and friendly place to learn to play drums. We're a place where young or old, female or male, are welcome. Where those who have never touched a pair of sticks feel comfortable. Where children and adults learn from enthusiastic and patient teachers in a fun way. Where some students have lofty goals and some just want to see what drumming is like. We have a real, true, open door policy.

BANG's physical space aligns with our school's philosophy. Our studios are beautiful; bright, clean and cheery, with great sounding drums and equipment. We're the only place in NYC with our own beautiful gut renovated multi-studio facility, complete with a comfy waiting room. It's a gorgeous drumming nirvana. See that photo above? That's Studio 1 at BANG's facility. It's nice here!

But MOST importantly--we have the BEST teachers! As of this writing, we've got 7 fantastic instructors. They are all professional drummers with deep teaching experience and top-notch educations, many from the top music schools in the country.
In addition, our teachers have that "X factor" of personality. All of our teachers have a happy, positive and encouraging attitude and have a huge amount of patience. They have to, or they can't teach at BANG!

Our teachers love drumming more than almost anything else and they exude that energy when they teach. We all love drumming so much; we want you to experience the same joy behind the drum set that we have.

This is all we do, and we love doing it.

Come to us and find out for yourself how much fun drumming can be.

See you soon,




Mark Feldman

Chick Corea’s 16 Pieces of Advice for Playing Music in a Group

Nasty Drum Lick #91

Here’s an awesome sounding new drum lick that demonstrates a notion I write and talk about often: using “connectors” in your soloing and fills. Usually, a connector is a rudiment or is based on a rudiment, and it is used to attach ideas to each other. In this case, the idea we’re connecting is a […]

Nasty Drum Lick #90

Nasty Drum Lick 90 is merely a simple variation on Nasty Lick 89. But, it sounds so good, I had to write it out and give it to all of you here in “The Drumming Blog.” For review, Nasty Lick 89 is a five note pattern: RLRLF, and it’s phrased as 16th note triplets. With […]
