Today, standard drum kits are composed of a snare drum, a bass drum, two toms (cylindrical drums), a hi-hat (two mounted cymbals), and another single cymbal. Generally, drums are played using drumsticks or brushes and form the backbone of the percussion section, responsible for keeping the rhythm.
Beginner classes will teach proper drumming technique, basic rhythm, and set playing. The lessons will combine music theory with modern musical examples to deliver a broad education. Intermediate and Advanced classes will focus on specific drum-set styles, orchestral and rudimentary snare drum technique, and drum analysis and transcription.
Edmonton Academy of Music offers two lesson plan packages that allow you to choose the direction of your musical education. The 10 WEEK EXPLORE PACKAGE is best suited for the curious mind. The DISCOVER PACKAGE, our regular yearly stream of lessons, is best suited for individuals looking to further develop their skills.
We also offer specialty packages – THE YOUNG MUSICIAN PACKAGE for our young piano players aged 5½-6 years, and our BEGINNER GUITAR PACKAGE for students eight years to adults who want to begin learning the guitar.
