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.

Great with children not so good with adults, came across as rude over the phone and in text. Again he's amazing with children though.

Sorry you felt that way Melanie. There's quite a few adults that left very positive feedback here that I've worked with. Finding my room is tricky at the Chicago location and simply reached out to you 45min prior in text how to find my room and that I was in a class til 10:30 and will hold the entrance door open if locked once I was able as I was still in a class. You like many, were standing a tad further down from where my 45min notice text explained in detail how to find my closest entrance door. It happens you're not the first, won't be the last, but my 45min earlier text does help eliminate any confusion. Hard to read emotion in text. I have all texts records back and fourth on that day. Glad Paul and you enjoyed the class. If you're ever in that area when I am, reach out and I'll give Paul a FREE pair of drumsticks! Mike

$10 well spent! My son is 7-yrs-old and has always enjoyed playing the "drums" around the house. Other places would not take him for lessons when he was younger so I put off the idea until now. This class was a great introduction to the instrument as well as the instructor. Mr. Mike is very good with kids, professional, and a great teacher. My son felt very comfortable learning and wanted to do more after the 30 minutes. He has a great program where the kids learn quickly but at their own pace. Good even for kids as young as 4. We are definitely signing up for more lessons...
