TOP 10 BENEFITS OF STUDYING DRUMS AT AIRDRIE DRUM LESSONS
PHYSICAL & MENTAL WELLBEING
Playing the drums exercises both body mind, getting the limbs moving, releasing pent up energy, & clearing the mind through rhythmic entertainment.
All drummers must master the rudiments, from single stroke rolls to triple paradiddles, these are the ABC’s of the language of rhythm.
Don’t end up with carpel tunnel! Learn to play in a relaxed, healthy way.
Drummers have their own music notation and reading is a great shortcut to learning a new song.
PLAYING BY THE EAR
While learning to read drum notation is useful, it’s also important to learn to play by ear & Airdrie Drum Lessons takes an integrated approach by teaching students both.
DISCIPLINE & FOCUS
Learning to play the drums requires a commitment to regular practice which leads to increased confidence, the ability to set goals, master skills, focus & achieve concrete results.
No other instrument challenges the brain & body on so many levels. 4 limbs playing 4 different rhythms does wonders for your grey matter AND it’s kind of a super power!
Young drummers need fuel for their rhythmic fire and that comes in the form of contemporary songs in a variety of styles, from Blues to Hip Hop and maybe even a little ZZ Top!
E-DRUMS & ACOUSTIC KIT
In the modern world, it’s important drummers are familiar & comfortable with both Electronic Drum & Acoustic Drum Kits. AML students have the chance to learn on both.
ROCK BAND CLASS
