In 2005, The Drum Lab became Sacramento’s first and only school of drumming. Since then, the Rocklin destination hasn’t skipped a beat in its mission to elevate the standards of musical education. Voted one of the Best Places to Learn to Play Music by CBS Sacramento and the 2012 winner of Best Music Instruction from the KCRA 3 A-List, the school fuels students with the technical know-how and confidence to master their favorite songs, then instills them with the desire to expand their musical horizons.
Based upon stylistic preference, students are paired with one of The Drum Lab’s gifted instructors, who specialize in genres that include rock, jazz, R & B, hip-hop, Latin, and gospel. Once a week, in 30-minute sessions, future John Bonhams and lil’ Gene Krupas learn to play in synchronicity with their instructor in acoustically crisp lab rooms fitted with two drum kits and a playback system with headphones. The school encourages students to beat their way out of comfort zones by periodically switching genres and instructors, helping them develop a comprehensive knowledge of drumming techniques and easing the nerves of insomniac rock drummers who fear waking up in a jazz quartet.

A Chat with Agee Fashion Institute
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We teach our students from a fashion industry perspective and home sewing perspective. Therefore you can choose which path to take without a long-term commitment.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Students will need to purchase the class kit prior to class start. The kit will include everything you need for both days. Other than the kit, a willingness to learn a new skill and have fun is all that is needed.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Many people want to learn to sew because of a desire to create the fashion ideas that are in their heads, but the expense of going to design school is not always in reach. Our opportunity starts you on that path.
What do you love most about your job?
Helping others learn a skill that makes them feel accomplished and good about themselves.
