Description

Drum Roots

Drum Roots is for students who have completed Tools of Rock or are new to the drums.

TECHNIQUE:

  • Stick grip and rebound stroke
  • Foot pedal technique (heel up/down)
  • Good position on the drums (good playing position with hands & feet)
  • Posture
  • Right hand/left hand

MUSIC SKILLS:

  • Steady beat/pulse (sharing the beat, counting the beat, how we use it to keep the music together)
  • Play basic songs as a group
  • Exposure to simple drum notation (recognize quarter and eighth notes)

DRUM SKILLS:
  • Know the names of the parts of the drumset (and their sounds)
  • Basic rudiments: flam, alternating stroke (single stroke)
  • Play the basic fill
  • Play a steady groove in time with snare and bass drum
  • Play the basic rock groove in time with snare, bass, and cymbal

Students will perform in a concert with their class during concert week.


REFUNDS: Students must pay for all lessons in the course, regardless of attendance. Full refunds or credits are available until 24 hours before your first class of the term. If you withdraw at least 24 hours before your 3rd class, a prorated school credits will be issued on your account. If you wish to receive a refund instead of a credit, please contact Youth Music Project at 503-616-5967. If your class has met 3 times or it is less than 24 hours before your 3rd class, no school credit or refund is given.

ABSENCES: Three absences out of four consecutive classes are grounds for being withdrawn from the class without a refund for the remainder of the term. Students arriving more than 25 minutes past the start time for their class will be marked absent and that absence will be counted toward the three absences policy. Unfortunately, due to schedule constraints, Youth Music Project is unable to reschedule missed classes.

CANCELLED CLASSES: Youth Music Project reserves the right to cancel a class at any time. If your class is cancelled, you will be notified and automatically issued a refund. In the event of a cancelled class, we would love to help you find another activity.
