If You've Never Played Drums Before, This Class Was Made For YOU!
- This is the exact same class we used to teach 800 beginners in our NYC drum studios.

- The class gives you 8 full hours of world-class instruction: 4 Weeks of Class, 2 Hours per Week.
- Your teacher is Mark Feldman, who Neil Peart selected as a winner of Modern Drummer Magazine’s very 1st drum solo contest (watch the video “Why Should I Trust You To Teach Me” for more on Mark).
- The Absolute Beginners Group Class is taught using Zoom so you can be anywhere in the world and learn to play the drums; you don’t have to leave your house!
- Learning drums via Zoom works! You’ll see and hear your instructor with multiple camera angles and hi-fidelity audio.
- The 50 page book on PDF contains all of the material you’ll learn in class and it’s yours to keep once class is over.
- The price is $199 per student; that’s just $25/hr.

I really look forward to my weekly drum lessons at Bang the Drum School. I started out at Bang by taking the beginner’s group class and I enjoyed the experience so much that I decided to continue with private lessons. I’m really glad that I did. Mark is a great teacher and a great guy; he has a real knack for fostering an environment for learning that is fun and relaxed while still being productive. I would highly recommend Bang the Drum School to anyone interested in learning to play the drums or progress to the next level.Read Less

Group Lessons: The group class removed all the overwhelm of approaching drums for the first time. It’s amazing how much these lessons eased me into playing in just a couple of classes over a few weeks. The material is organized in a clear progression, and the class gave me the confidence to walk over to any drum kit and start playing without feeling anxious.Read Less

My lessons at BANG! The Drum School have been the highlight of my week since I started their Absolute Beginners Class. Our instructor, Mark Feldman, is experienced, knowledgeable, and breaks down material clearly. He is always willing to answer our questions and meet us where we are to help us improve. I’m only two lessons in and already feel as if my drumming knowledge and skill is growing. I highly recommend taking classes at Bang.Read Less

The beginners class was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning to play the drums. Over the course of 4 weeks you learn all the basic techniques you need to get a really solid foundation to go on and pursue your personal drumming practice. Mark F. is an incredible teacher and makes each class fun and relaxed while teaching you everything you need/want to know about drumming for beginners. I was surprised at how quickly everyone picked things up — he had us all playing basic rock beats our first class! Definitely a MUST if you are considering learning how to play the drums. Cannot recommend it enough.Read Less

Best drum class I’ve ever been to. I’ve been to a rip-off class before where they only let you play along with songs to feel cool but actually learning nothing. My instructor is extremely professional and patient. I played in a band before but I was still surprised by how many fundamentals I didn’t know. He really taught me the skills I needed to go a long way with my drumming. I highly recommend this class!Read Less

What Practice Pad and Sticks Should I Get?
“RealFeel” Practice Pad (by Evans): It’s big (12″ diameter), has a great feeling rebound, and it’s pretty quiet. It’s my go-to practice pad. It is actually the pad that I play in the videos on this page. You can buy it with this Amazon link.
Vic Firth “Freestyle” 5b: Vic Firth is my favorite brand of sticks and this is the model I currently use. These sticks are a bit longer than sticks have been made traditionally. I’m a Vic Firth endorser but I don’t work with companies unless I love their products.
