SAC Beginner Certification Course on Drums


Course Overview:

Each student will realize that they can be a drum player. This course serves as an introduction
to the instrument and will provide students with instant access to making music on the drum.
Focus points will be beats and rhythms, reading music, improvising, and beginning of own
beats making.

Course Description:

Students will be led through an intensive six-month course to introduce them to the drum.
The course will be split into several units that cover various aspects of understanding the
instrument and the music that can be created with it. Each week, students will be led through
a routine of setting up their drums, warming-up, group instruction, and independent group
practicing and playing. Throughout the six-month course, students will keep a learner’s
journal and manuscript notebook to record and reflect upon their process of learning.


Students who are a part of ‘Beginner Certification Course on Drums’ should be prepared to
practice on their own time outside of class. To progress towards the course’s final goals and
objectives, daily independent practicing is essential. We have only one month together so
let’s make the most of it!
