Drumming for Beginners


ACE Kids K-12 / Music & Theater -
Winter 2022

Learn how to rock out on the drums with this class focusing on foundational skills. Using practice pads, learn how to grip and balance drumsticks and proper technique for playing the snare drum with articulation and overall accuracy. Rhythm and sight reading are other vital skills to master, and we’ll have plenty of exercises to practice keeping the beat each week. 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. A limited supply of practice pads and sticks are available to borrow during class for those who do not have them. Please note: Dates have changed from the printed catalog. New dates 2/9-4/6.
