Before encouraging your child to start a percussion course, make sure he/ she feels the rhythm and is really passionate about it. He/ she will be tested in this regard, before the beginning of the course, in order to determine whether the prospective learner has natural inclinations or talent for this instrument.
Percussion lessons are organized on different levels.
- Beginner drum classes aim at the basics, learning a suitable position for holding the sticks and hitting the drums. Students will learn to play their first rhythms and some simple songs.
- Intermediate drum classes include sight-reading, improving sound quality, interpretation of medium level musical scores and simple exercises for improving the speed and control while drumming.
- Advanced drum courses target those who want to perfect their technique, speed and rhythm vocabulary.
