Our drum instruction will have you playing the songs, beats and grooves you love right away. Because lessons are in your Main Line home, you get to learn on your own set. In addition, your teacher can help you keep your drums well maintained, tuned and in great shape.

Beginning Drum Lessons

Beginning drum students learn the fundamentals: important rhythmic and stylistic techniques, how to play steady beats and fills to music you love. Young drum students will benefit from fun, skill-boosting MW games and activities.

Intermediate Drum Lessons

Intermediate drum students expand upon their skills with different styles of music – from jazz to metal, rock to pop. You will learn soloing, composition and advanced techniques with in-depth studies of their favorite drum heroes or music styles. You will get a chance to play with other musicians in local Main Line area shows and concerts.

Advanced Drum Lessons

Advanced students will be challenged and encouraged by their advanced, professional performing drum instructors. Lessons will be structured to suit your specific talents and needs. You will also have opportunities to play with other musicians in local Main Line area shows and concerts.

Do You Play in a Band or Want to?

Your in-home drum lessons can also work in conjunction with, prepare for and support you playing in a band. The majority of our drum teachers also play another instrument, so they can "jam" with you while you play real songs, vibes and grooves.  Since our teachers all have professional band experience, we can privately coach you to become a top-notch band player.  When you show up at rehearsal you will be confident, prepared and ready to rock!   Because your drum lessons are in your home on your own set, your teacher can also help you with your personal equipment maintenance, tuning, heads, set up and more. MW students that are in bands have an extra edge because they have our expert creative training.

Personal Band Trainers

Do you have a band with some friends?  Many students form bands with their friends, but don’t know what to do next. For these students, we have a basement band program - where you and your friends can have one of our pro "personal band trainers" come to your house to take you all to the next level. We coach you on skills such as learning songs and sets, playing by ear, songwriting, improvisation, soloing, rehearsal practices, recording albums and performance prep. Are you ready to get results you have been dreaming of?

At the Meridee Winters School of Music, we pride ourselves on offering music lessons that are “a step beyond” any other. This begins with our teachers. The Meridee Winters school seeks out the best applicants possible, by directing our job postings to creative, enthusiastic musicians. On average only ten percent of applicants get an interview, with even fewer being offered positions on our staff. Your drum lessons will be taught by professionally performing musicians who play in bands both locally and nationally.  Because many of our drum teachers are multi-instrumentalists, they will often accompany you on electric or acoustic guitar, voice, percussion or other instruments.  This will give you a head start on learning to play with a band. All of our music teachers will come directly to your home, throughout the Main Line Area.

Why MW Lessons are Unlike Any Other...

 At the Meridee Winters School of Music, we pride ourselves on offering music lessons that are “a step beyond” any other.

This begins with our teachers. The Meridee Winters school seeks out the best applicants possible, by directing our job postings to creative, enthusiastic musicians. On average only ten percent of applicants get an interview, with even fewer being offered positions on our staff. After this, we train our teachers in our one-of-a-kind creative method, which Meridee has spent the past 20 years developing. Teachers receive mentorship and monthly workshops, and students, in turn, receive the most inspired and personalized music instruction available.

Meridee Winters has also developed her own teaching materials and curriculum – available ONLY through her Main Line school of music. These materials include skill building games, songwriting activities, journals, portfolios and more! The “top secret” MW Game book is a remarkable teaching tool for our instructors:

I love having a bag of tricks to bring to lessons. The games serve as tools to teach skills, creative outlets, as well as rewards for good practicing, good behavior, or good focus during the lesson. There’s always something fun to find in the bag, either an established game or using the tools to create something new. 
– Amy Hansen-Brower, MW Teacher
