eLearning Day Two!!!
Day two is all about rhythm. One of the best ways a musician can improve their time and rhythm is by working on performing on the drum set.
Follow the link below and watch the videos (Don't forget to play along with the video!). Really dig in and enjoy it. The drum set can be super fun to play. Start slow and break down the drum pattern by each subdivision. Identify what is happening on each part of the measure. When your ready submit a video of you performing one of the drum beats from the groove library. If this is your first time playing drum set, choose the basic backbeat or four on the floor. If you have played drums in the past, choose something more difficult! Have fun!!!!
