The Beginner Presentation focuses on the history of the drum-set through learning the components by name, sight and sound. We also discuss the role of the drum-set in all forms of American popular music from Traditional New Orleans Music to Hip/Hop. As a fun and interactive demonstration is performed, students are selected to participate along side Mr. Martin. This encourages team work and active listening for all of the students as we cover the different types of music styles.
