Drum Set lessons
Playing the drums places the highest demands on coordination and the musculoskeletal system of the entire body. Our drum lessons provide the necessary technical, coordinative and theoretical prerequisites and knowledge to be able to accompany, solo and improvise in all styles and musical worlds.
Main topics are playing techniques, styles, sound, improvisation, sight-reading, interpretation as well as advanced concepts and contexts. It can be said that perception is expanded here – only those who can imagine something can also realize it purposefully or freely. This accompanying, soloing or improvising.
These skills are taught for students of different levels – from beginner to advanced, from study preparation to professional musician coaching – in private lessons as well as in small groups. The lessons give the necessary technical, coordination and theoretical prerequisites and knowledge. Special attention is given to the understanding of styles and musical cultures. It may sound esoteric, but here the consciousness is actually expanded. Only if you can imagine something, you can realize it purposefully or freely, accompanying or soloing or improvising.
