Eminent percussion seeks to raise the early awareness of rhythms and beats through our engaging toddler drum curriculum. Through time, the child develops coordination and timing through a series of interactive exercises that will keep him or her involved and actively participating by playing along with the lesson.
Our Junior Classes are extremely beneficial for children from the age of 7. Our course is designed to bring fun and fundamentals to our students, educating them about how to count beats, understand rhythm, keep time and get tuned in to playing basic drum beats.
Our Beginner Course is designed to educate drummers who are exploring the instrument and have an interest in finding out more about this craft. The primary focus of this course is to provide an introduction to drumming, to develop the student’s understanding of essential drumming concepts, and to build a strong foundation in reading drum notations. At the end of the course, our students will receive an evaluation from our drum educator on his/her progress and development. We strive to bring the best in our students with fun and practicality, enabling a more enjoyable academic learning experience.
The Intermediate Course focuses on helping students develop drum independence, syncopation, improvisation, speed, rhythmic applications, and other rudimental techniques for performing in a band, showcasing a drum solo, or even composing drum rhythms & grooves. Students will listen, recognize, transcribe and practice different song styles and rhythms.
The Advanced Course is very comprehensive and students would require a deeper understanding of drum theory, techniques, rudiments, and foundation. This course is designed to maximize our students’ potential, disciplining them towards becoming a professional.
