J Music - Adult Drum Lessons - Adult Students

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 find it scary to learn alongside children in music schools?
  • 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 skills are at a “kindergarten” level?
  • Are you worried that not having any experience in music will stop you from getting better?

Look no further. We are here to provide you with a tailored drumming experience designed exclusively for working adults and retirees, making it possible for you to embrace your passion and become the drummer you have always wanted to be.

Imagine a drum school where you are surrounded by like-minded adults who share your love for drumming.

At J Music, we understand that many adults feel self-conscious about learning alongside children.

That is why we have created a welcoming and supportive environment specifically for working adults and retirees who are eager to explore the world of drumming.

Say goodbye to feeling out of place and hello to a community that celebrates your musical aspirations.

Hello, I’m Jason, the founder of J Music, Singapore’s premier adult-only drum school. We specialise in teaching adults the drums they have always longed to play while supporting them in achieving a healthy 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 noticed a gap in the drum education industry after two years on the job.

There were no drum schools solely dedicated to teaching adults, as most schools focused on children.

I realised that adults have different learning needs and desired a more flexible curriculum, along with the opportunity to play songs outside of lessons.

Many adults felt uncomfortable attending classes dominated by children.

Inspired by this gap, I founded J Music, Singapore’s first adult-only drum school.

My goal is to make drumming a part of every adult’s life, regardless of age or musical background.

The “J” in J Music stands for Jason, reflecting my personal commitment to spreading the love of drums to adults.

Glenn Lee

Adult Drum Lessons - J Music Instructor - Glenn Lee

Over the last 9 years, Glenn has been teaching drums at several renowned music schools and through this, he had the opportunity to meet students from all walks of life.

Working with so many different students helped him discover that each one of them faced unique challenges while learning to play the drums. Through his experiences with them, he developed effective methods that his adult students could use to overcome their obstacles whilst learning.

Glenn has performed for local artists such as Olivia Ong, Kelvin Tan Wei Lian (陈伟联), NEKO Highway (貓速公路) and Shelby Wang (王曉敏). He is also the drummer of local band, Too Much Drama (TMD).

Glenn was one of the few top scorers who had received full marks in the Trinity College London Grade 8 drum examination.


Here’s what our students have to say about their experience with us:

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 Coach

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.

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.
