Playing a musical instrument is a skill that will serve you throughout your entire life, like safe cracking, horse whispering, and puppy juggling. Add to your resume with today's Groupon: for $40, you get four 30-minute private music lessons on your choice of instrument (a $140 value) at Seattle Drum School, valid at the Georgetown or North Seattle location. Lessons must be taken once weekly over the span of four consecutive weeks.
Seattle Drum School teaches budding musicians of all ages the art of note and beat making while helping to inspire them to learn more about their craft. Choose from a multitude of music makers available with this Groupon: drums, guitar, bass, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, vocals, turntable, and giant tuning fork for tapping into the music of the spheres. The school has a staff of 40 instructors, many of who have been part of successful bands, such as Death Cab for Cutie drummer Jason McGerr. Seattle Drum School's facilities also include a recording studio and performance venue. For an additional $7 an hour, students can rent time in the school's practice rooms, where they can practice scales, songs, or making outrageous requests for crustless caviar sandwiches and pre-peeled string cheese.
Seattle Drum School
When Seattle Drum School owner and founder Steve Smith first began leading private lessons, bands such as Queen and Pink Floyd were just hitting their stride. That was nearly four decades ago, before air guitar became a legitimate art form, and well before Steve opened the doors to SDS in 1986. Since then, though, Steve has fostered the school into a thriving music institution, and one that currently boasts a faculty of more than 40 talented teachers. Such a large staff translates into an equally diverse selection of lessons for students, who can hone their skills in everything from guitar, piano, and voice to saxophone, turntables, and, of course, drums.
