Drum Classes for Kids

Seattle Drum Classes for Kids

This kid-friendly class is a great introduction to the world of drums and percussion. Class participants will be introduced to a few key members of the percussion family, including snare drum, drum set, and hand percussion instruments. Students will get up and get moving while learning how to sing and play a few basic rhythms, and will have a chance to play these rhythms together as a group. This class offers a low-pressure, fun environment for the future drummer in your family!

Goals for students in their first year of drum class:

• Play rudimentary rhythms on snare drum / practice pad
• Play an individualized warm up routine (paradiddles, two on a hand, eight on a hand, etc.)
• Use proper technique to play multiple percussion instruments
• Perform rhythms and musical styles from multiple cultures and genres
• Play in a group setting while using listening skills to keep a steady beat
• Develop sight-reading and music theory knowledge
• Perform in front of an audience: individually, in small groups, and as an ensemble
