LESSONS BY TALENT

Drum Lessons

While individual drums are one of the world’s oldest instruments, musicians first began combining drums into sets in the 1860s. Still, it wasn’t until 1909 when Chicago-based brothers William and Theobald Ludwig patented and produced the bass drum pedal that the modern drum kit began to truly develop.

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.
