So, You Know A Little About Drumming, Right?
You’re not a complete beginner, but you haven’t played a whole lot. You suspect that there’s a bunch of stuff you don’t know. You want to get better, but you don’t know where to start. Imagine that you’re starting to get good at playing the drums. That would be exciting, wouldn’t it? Let us help you.
Announcing the 2nd level of our highly regarded Adults Group Class
If you’ve taken our “Absolute Beginners Group Class” already, this class is designed to start right where that class left off. We’ll take you beyond the basics that we showed you in that first class.
We Will Get Deeper Into:
- Reading Rhythmic Notation
- Playing Beats
- Playing Fills
We will also review the basics that were covered in the first class, because we’ve been told that there is almost too much information given to our students in Level 1. And then, having reviewed, we’ll take you to the NEXT level–Level 2, that is!!
“How Do I Know If This Class Is Right For Me?”
Good question. If you’ve taken our Group Class for Absolute Beginners, you are all set. Go ahead and sign up for Level 2. Oh, you haven’t taken that class? Well, if not, then…
Here is What You Should Know Already to Take Level 2:
- How to read basic rhythmic notation including quarter notes, eighth notes, triplets and sixteenth notes.
- How to play a variety of simple rock beats based on all eighth notes (i.e. your cymbal hand plays eighth notes, your other hand plays “two” and “four” on the snare, and your bass drum foot plays only notes that line up with your cymbal hand).
- The basics of correct grip and how to make the stick bounce.
- How to play a few basic fills and go back and forth confidently between a beat and a fill.
If you can’t do what’s listed above, or if you looked at what’s listed above and you just don’t understand what the heck we’re talking about, then you’re not ready for Level 2. If that’s the case, you can just take the “Absolute Beginners Group Class” (level 1) and get yourself up to speed.
