Adult Drum Lessons in Singapore

Simple adult drum lessons that will bring you joy, give you a sense of accomplishment, and a fulfilling retirement hobby.


Why Do We Only Offer Adult Drum Lessons?

Because we are on a mission to teach adults how to play the drums they have always longed for and to assist them in achieving a work-life balance.

  • Do you think you are too old to play the drums?
  • Do you believe you lack a sense of rhythm?
  • Do you think your drumming is “kindergarten” level?
  • Do you feel shy attending lessons at a school where most of the students are children?
  • Are you afraid that having no prior musical background will prevent you from progressing?

We understand your concerns because 9 out of 10 students who attended their trial lessons with us had the same worries as you.

That’s why, through our simple adult drum lessons, we hope to instil confidence in you while also providing an adult environment for you to embark on your journey to playing the drums you have always longed for.

With the right attitude, an experienced instructor and proven curriculum, learning to play the drums is easier than you think.

Hey, Jason here, I am the founder of J Music where we teach adults how to play the drums they have always longed for and assist them in achieving a work-life balance.

I began teaching drums in a music school over a decade and a half ago as a way to supplement my income while studying.

I was teaching students of all ages.

After two years on the job, I realised that adults learn differently than children.

They desired a curriculum that was less rigid but still systematic, as well as the opportunity to play more songs in between lessons.

Most of them were too shy to attend classes in a school dominated mostly by children

I discovered my true calling: educating adults and providing a conducive environment for them.

I left the school and founded J Music, Singapore’s first adult-only drum school.

Here in J Music, my team and I will walk you through the process of learning to play the drums you have always longed for and achieve a work-life balance that will bring you joy, give you a sense of accomplishment, and a fulfilling retirement hobby.

My greatest desire is for drumming to be a part of your life and something you look forward to every day, regardless of your age or musical background.

If you are wondering what the J in J Music stands for, it stands for Jason. I wanted a name that was close to my heart because I knew this would be a lifelong mission to spread the love of drums to all adults.

What Our Students Say

Since this Jan I joined J Music for adult drum lessons, I have to say this is the most pleasant experience I have had so far in a local music school. My instructor Jason is super patient, kind and professional. He can always spot the hiccups and inconsistencies. And he’s very dedicated to good quality music education. If you are looking for progress, I am very proud to say J Music is the one you are looking for.
Gong Xue

Assistant Professor

I’m 62 years old, I’ve been with J Music for three years, and I’m still learning from Jason. Jason is a very experienced drum instructor who is flexible to my progress and song preferences. He is strict and expects high standards, but he encourages me to keep going. His lessons are systematic and effective. If you’re looking for a high-quality drumming instructor, I’d certainly recommend him.
Peng Hong

Business Consultant

Jason is a good teacher. He has a good ear, and is able to pick up flaws in my playing very quickly, and correct them with simple methods. Age is no barrier to learning how to play the drum. We progress at our own paces, but with every lesson, you will get better and more proficient. I am able to drum along to many of my favourite songs now.
Mr. CK

General Practitioner

As a 64-year-old student, I would describe the initial journey as “sweet and sour.” But now I can play 22 songs as well as one song (by Beyond) that I specifically requested from Jason, my trainer. J Music’s video recordings are one of the good values they offer. Every time I record a video, it improves my drumming skills. Playing the drums is now a part of my life.
