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!
This class is recommended for ages 5-11, but students outside this age range are welcome to enroll and the instructor can assess whether it is the right fit for them.
New students are welcome to try a first class anytime. There is no charge if you choose not to continue.
Goals for students in their first year of drum class:
• Play rudimentary rhythms and beats on the drum set
• Play an individualized warm up routine (paradiddles, two on a hand, eight on a hand, etc.)

• 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
