Beginning Drums for Kids

What kid hasn’t thought about learning to play the drums? This class will give young drummers an overview of the fundamentals of drumming and percussion. Each class will focus on a musical style and concept, and by the end, students will have a basic understanding of; proper stick technique, reading and notating rhythm, simple ostinati, and both solo and ensemble playing. Students will have the opportunity to play on a variety of percussion instruments such as drums, mallet percussion, and accessory instruments (more cow bell!). Students will focus on a short piece to perform for family and friends at our final class session.

No prior experience necessary!

Session 8 is the Final Performance! Family and friends welcome!

How to prepare

Materials: Students should bring to each session a pencil, a 3-ring binder for music, a pair of drumsticks and a practice pad.
