Course Overview

A drummer is the backbone of almost any band or music group in today’s musical landscape. Being “on time” is just a small portion of what makes a successful drummer. The better a drummer can understand their kit and the wide array of options available to them, the better they can take full advantage of their craft. Since everything involved with creating a drummer’s signature sound is subjective, this course is geared towards giving the students access to hearing (and playing) different tuning styles, head & stick selections, kit set-up, etc.

Students will also learn how to do basic drum repair, maintenance and troubleshooting as well as get the chance to refurbish a broken cymbal that they can take home with them.
