Benefits of the DrumsDrum Lessons in Havertown 19083

The study of drums and percussion has recently become more popular with a younger demographic. It is a high energy pursuit that builds physical strength, body awareness, muscle memory, grace, and coordination in movement. It is a wonderful choice for children and teenagers with energy to spare, or students who are seeking a physical activity but may not be interested in sports. Learning drums can benefit students academically by improving listening skills and increasing the ability to focus for longer time periods.

About The DrumsDrum Lessons in Bryn Mawr 19010

The drum kit is the most popular instrument taught in the Main Line Music School’s drum and percussion program (although other kinds of percussion are also taught). The drum kit generally consists of a bass drum, hi-hat, cymbal, snare drum, floor tom and two hanging toms along with a crash cymbal that is played with sticks or mallets. There are also electronic drum kits that can be played in the same manner. The drum kit is a versatile instrument, and is utilized in rock, jazz, blues, Latin, country, pop, R&B as well as many other styles of music. Drummers use notation called percussion notation, which resembles traditional sheet music but is written for non-pitched percussion.There is a loosely standardized form to represent the drum kit in musical notation. The great thing about starting drum lessons is that it is not necessary to purchase a drum kit right away. Home practice can be done on an inexpensive practice pad until the interest level of the student is determined.
