Aspects of drumming
This is the correct method of using the hands and feet. If a drummer has bad technique, they will not feel relaxed when they play. At some point they will reach a limit that they will not be able to overcome. Good technique from day one will ensure that the student has the potential to go all the way with fewer obstacles.
The ability to make the hands and feet independent from each other. Work on co-ordination will help the student translate their thoughts into their playing with more freedom.
The ability to listen to music and to know precisely what is happening. This can be improved with practice. It will help the student to figure out rhythms on their own, helping them to be independent and creative in band situations.
I will often play along with students in the lesson on bass, piano or guitar. Playing with other musicians can be intimidating at first. This makes good preparation for band situations.
This is a good form of communication and keeping a record of what needs to be played. We will study different styles, bands and drummers that have made drumming what it is today.
Creativity and Improvisation
This is what music is all about. Using the memory expands the vocabulary of the musician, allowing them to express their creativity via the form of improvisation.
