Drum Lessons with Russell Lacy

What it is: Durham Drum Lessons w/ Russell Lacy- perfect for all ages. Russell has two studios- one in Carrboro and one in Durham. My son is only three, but enjoys banging on his drum set at home. We were excited for the opportunity to work with a professional!

What we liked: Russell is a talented musician and is great with children. He works with a variety of ages, but he knew how to make things simple and positive and FUN for my little guy. Step by step, patiently using repetition (as well as high fives;), Russell was able to teach my three year old how to: properly hold drum sticks, drum using alternating arms, include counts- 1, 2, 3, 4 as well as 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and, repeat rhythms, learn names of various drums, and even jam a bit on an adult sized drum set! All within 30 minutes- an impressive accomplishment with any toddler!

What we would change:
Honestly, I was completely happy with his lesson! If you have lots of questions (like I always do:) I would encourage asking before (if you can arrive early or call/email ahead) or after session. I found myself taking up a few minutes of my son’s lesson...oops!!
