Drum Lessons

We have the state of the art drum lesson rooms in East Texas, a KAT electronic drum set for students to use.  Our drum instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues, and many other styles.  Drum language can be complex and our instructors will challenge any drummer with a wide variety of technical exercises to improve speed and comfort.  All drummer students can bring in their favorite drum parts to learn in their lessons and theory is encouraged. You do not have to purchase a drum kit to take lessons.  Beginning students can learn with a drum pad and sticks for only $45.  Students use our drum set at their lessons and do not have to bring anything except their drum sticks and the drum instructional book.

We also offer FREE optional “Jams” or recitals twice a year at Central Baptist Church.  There are no hidden performance fees, no tickets to purchase, and no yearly student activities fee. The jams are always optional, never a requirement. However, we do encourage our students to participate, every May and December. Our students always seem to have a great time showcasing their skills and getting a full stage experience!

We are the only music schools in East Texas that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests.  The Musical Ladder is our unique method of music education that you can only get here. More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder here. We also specialize in music lessons for adults

Our drum lessons are 30 minutes once a week. In a month you get an average of 4 lessons a month. A month is $99.  We offer lessons Monday thru Friday 2:30 to 8pm and Saturday 10 to 2pm.

That question is often asked by prospective students. Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals. 

We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach. 

A seven year old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a fifty seven year old taking up piano for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child. 

The main reason to choose Tyler Music Academy, as your music lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual. 

If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child.


We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, blues and classical. 


All our teachers have had many years of lessons behind them, most are in a band and are performing around town.  We have many different varieties of teachers from mastering one to three different instruments!  In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.
