Adult Drumming Course


KP8.jpg

Have you always wanted to play the drums? Do you play them already? Either way this course is for you! Meet new people and have fun in Katie's relaxed environment and experience the joy of playing music with others. Katie will be supplying everything: drums, cymbals and percussion and sticks. Expect to learn the drum beats to a song or two that you know, and maybe a song or two that you don't. Katie will be using the parts of a drum kit and splitting them up in the group so each person has one or two elements of the drum kit resulting in a massive groove ensemble!
All equipment provided, no experience necessary.

What to expect:

In each session, we will warm up with a series of rhythmic games, look at stick technique, rhythmic development, coordination and tone control and development. Then we will look at a specific drum part to a song with the aim to make a short recording that I will email out to everyone after the session.

The goals of the sessions are:

To learn about the drums and how they fit with the rest of the instruments in a band, hopefully increasing awareness of the drums when you are listening to music.
To meet new people in the local area
To have some fun stress relief hitting drums and making noise!

Can't make it to all 3 sessions? No worries, just come to the ones you can make! If you'd like to come to all 3 sessions you need to individually book each one.
