Playing a musical instrument is a skill that will serve you throughout your entire life, like safe cracking, horse punching, and toddler juggling. Add to your resume with today's Groupon: for $40, you get four 30-minute introductory music lessons on your choice of instrument from Seattle Drum School (a $120 value). Choose from either the Georgetown or Northgate location. Seattle Drum School teaches budding musicians the art of note and beat making while helping them to gain a greater appreciation for music and performance. Choose from a multitude of music makers available with this Groupon: drums, guitar, bass, saxophone, trumpet, piano, vocals, turntable, and moonshine jug. The school has a staff of more than 20 instructors, many of whom have been part of successful touring bands, such as Death Cab for Cutie drummer Jason McGerr. Seattle Drum's facilities also include a recording studio and a performance venue. For an additional $7 an hour, students are allowed to rent time in the school's practice rooms, where they can practice scales, songs, or making outrageous rider requests for crustless caviar sandwiches and prepeeled string cheese.


Five Yelpers give the Bailey Street location of Seattle Drum School a perfect five-star average; four Citysearchers give the 15th Avenue location a five-star average as well:

  • The Seattle Drum School is easily one of the best, and yet probably the least widely known misical [sic] school in Seattle. Contrary to what the name implies, the school teaches everything from accordion to the electric guitar. I myself took lessons there for four years, and I enjoyed my experience there so much that I now volunteer there and help with the concerts. – Solitaire, Citysearch
  • I love the Seattle Drum School Georgetown. The teachers are friendly, knowledgeable, and very dedicated to their crafts. My daughter and I have had a few different teachers at the school, and every single one of them were awesome teachers. – Stella P., Yelp

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.
