During lessons, an instructor works with students of all levels to impart drumming mechanics at their own pace. Lessons are tailored to skill level, but students might cover topics such as timing, basic music reading, original beats and filling, solos, double bass, and four-limb interdependence. Students leave with a professional pre-recorded lesson video for referral purposes when practicing.

Chicago's #1 Drum Lessons

Mike Semerau and the instructors at Chicago's #1 Drum Lessons have a trick up their sleeve. In addition to in-person tutelage, they provide professional pre-recorded take-home videos of proper drumming techniques for students to refer to while practicing. This kind of constant visualization and repetitive watching is what the instructors claim makes their students so successful as they drill new techniques such as double bass, ostinatos, and stick control. During lessons, teachers also cover subjects such as soloing, learning a student’s favorite song, creating original beats and fills, and teaching yourself. Chicago's #1 Drum Lessons has a play-along machine stacked with more than 1,000 songs, all of which have no drum track so that students can provide their own percussion and experience the sensation of playing and keeping time with other instruments.
