Drum playing techniques

The drum is a very physical instrument, and poor technique can lead to injuries. With a few hours per week, students will learn a musical style and how to play without injuring their hands, arms, and back, as well as how to “hit hard” without hurting themselves. Each week of practice will allow the students to learn different techniques for exploring rhythms, such as the basics, independence, solos, the double bass drum pedal, and improvisation, to name just a few.
