This live online drumming course with Alan Preims covers fundamental hand drumming techniques, sounds and rhythms, which you can learn from the comfort of your home.
For this 6 weeks live online drumming course we offer you the opportunity to learn using the Mitchell Drum, a compact and easy to store drum, ideal for practising and learning from home at a comfortable room volume. Simply book your place in the course, and we’ll have your drum ready for collection from our music studio just next door to Just Art It. The course fee includes a €100 deposit which will be refunded to you at the end of the course, when you return the drum.
You can also purchase a new Mitchell Drum – handmade in Ireland – together with the course, or you can purchase the course only, if you already have your own Mitchell Drum.
In this course you will learn popular and folkloric rhythms from around the world. You will discover fundamental techniques, and learn how to use cajon drums to accompany music. We will also look at exercises to improve your hand drumming and coordination skills, and you will learn to understand rhythmic subdivisions and rhythmic phrases, for creating your own grooves. This course is designed to improve your musical interaction and listening skills, while having fun through group activities and rhythm games in our interactive online classroom.
The classes are offered in Zoom, on Tuesday evenings, from 7pm – 8.30pm (GMT). There’s no need to create an account in Zoom, we highly recommend the use of headphones.
