Why is it great to be a music student in Wilmette?
Wilmette is home to Piano Power’s fastest-growing base of students. We love our Wilmette students, and we’re delighted to be featured in this glowing article in Wilmette Life.
Wilmette drum students benefit from the enriching music curriculum of District 39 schools. The Wilmette Park District offers programming in theater and music, including the Canzonetta Youth String Chamber Orchestra. And students and their families can enjoy the goods at Hip Cat Records & Music Videos!
Our private lessons are appropriate for drummers aged 5 to 105. For students younger than five, we’re happy to discuss alternatives to private lessons. Somewhere around age 5, a combined increase in finger strength, reading ability, and concentration makes a student ready for private lessons.

Your drum teacher will work with you to create a practice plan that works for your student’s schedule. The single most important element of drum practice is regularity. We know our students are busy! But devoting even a modest amount of time each day to drum practice produces much better results than relying on weekly “cram sessions.” Ideally, your student will make drums a regular part of his or her day.

Piano Power recitals
If your student has been receiving drum instruction with Piano Power for three months or more, he or she is invited to participate in our annual spring recital. Held in June and December, the recital is a wonderful, low-key way to celebrate your student’s achievements. Our pianists perform a huge variety of repertoire — from classical to original compositions to Top-40 radio hits.
