Drum Lessons for All Levels

Drums form the “heartbeat” of every style of music and songs. Musicians are attracted to drum playing for its moving and energetic impact it makes on every song. Many musicians agree that a great rhythm section and expert technique– including the drums–is the key to every amazing band. Whether you are a beginning musician or an experienced, building more proficiency in the drums can be one of the best options to take to be even better and go to the next level.

Drum Lessons La Quinta for Kids

Mikael knows that a lifelong love of music can be fostered in young people’s minds. We create the space for musicians to succeed. Give your child the gift of music lessons, and see how they bloom in other aspects of their lives.

A child who studies music becomes more courageous, confident, creative, and caring! They learn how to collaborate with other musicians to build meaningful connections and skills that will last their whole lives. Kids who practice an instrument learn independence and have the ability to think outside of the box.

La Quinta, CA.

I am so happy to have found Mikael Jacobson of BassLine Music to instruct my three sons. I have a 10-year-old who is learning banjo and guitar, an 8-year-old taking bass and a 6-year-old on drums.
Mikael’s enthusiasm and patience as an instructor is truly remarkable. He is giving my sons a solid musical foundation while also tailoring his teaching to whatever music they are excited about at the moment. Right now it’s the Ramones, last month it was AC/DC.
All three boys are making steady progress with their instruments and always look forward to their weekly lessons.

Mikael is by training both a musician and a teacher and he has a wealth of knowledge and experience in teaching all levels and a variety of instruments.  Our daughter took keyboard lessons, and our son took acoustic and electric guitar lessons and some music theory as well.  The students do not “grow out” of the program, because he is equally adept at teaching beginners and advanced students and has a fully-equipped studio.

The live performance opportunities are included with the lessons, and they are well-organized and really fun to attend. Mikael also has a low-pressure but professional style that makes lessons something to look forward to, rather than dread, and he encourages and fosters each student’s unique, individual artistic expression.

Mikael is by far the best music teacher in Palm Desert if you’re looking for Piano and Guitar lessons! His BassLine Music Concerts he holds for his students twice a year and his accommodations for teaching remote lessons using Zoom is far above and beyond any music teacher in the Coachella Valley! I highly recommend Mikael for any music student young or old.
