Drumming: Beginner (Adults)


Adult Enrichment / Music & Theater -
Fall 2021

Gain the foundational skills you need to play your favorite music on the drums. Using practice pads, we’ll cover all of the necessary skills to master this fun instrument. We’ll start with stick control and learn how to properly grip and balance drumsticks. Rhythm is another vital skill to master and plenty of exercises will help us practice keeping the beat. We will learn how to sight read and work through rhythmic exercises before playing them to nail down beats. We’ll start by using both hands and as the sessions progress we’ll also cover four-way coordination and independence of the hands and feet. Enjoy learning how to play a great musical instrument and have fun doing it! Please note: Bring a drum practice pad and set of sticks to each class. Practice pads and sticks are available to borrow during class for those who do not have them. Supplies are limited. Suggestions on purchasing items will be included in the Registration Confirmation email.
