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.

RUDIMENTS

All drummers must master the rudiments, from single stroke rolls to triple paradiddles, these are the ABC’s of the language of rhythm.

HEALTHY TECHNIQUE

Don’t end up with carpel tunnel! Learn to play in a relaxed, healthy way.

RHYTHM READING

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.

EYE-HAND-FOOT CO-ORDINATION

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!

CONTEMPORARY STYLES

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

Airdrie Music Lessons also has Rock Band Classes for teens with previous music experience. AML drum students have the chance to sit in on Rock Band Classes & even play along.
