Drum Programs at Miami Fine Arts Academy are designed for students from 5 years old to adults. Young beginners (5 to 6) are evaluated for readiness. Students will learn multiple styles including: from Rudimental Drumming to Classical, from Rock and Jazz, to Latin drum set styles. Lessons will focus on musical literacy, technique, music theory (rhythm, scales, and chords), as well as developing a vocabulary for basic and advanced drumming rudiments, solo and ensemble performance, and applying popular music to percussion. Drum classes at our Academy are enhanced by the multiple performing opportunities to showcase a solo performance in a recital or jam with other musicians, including a rock band.
What Will I or My Child Learn in a Drum Lesson?
Students start by learning fundamentals pertaining to proper percussion technique, which will enable them to achieve the most proper and efficient percussion technique. This technique is taught within enjoyable musical contexts and will greatly benefit students in avoiding overuse injuries that come with improper playing techniques. Students will learn how to read music through studying snare drum exercises/solos, mallet keyboard exercises/solos, and drum set exercises/charts. Furthermore, students will have the opportunity to perform in various recitals and events within Miami Fine Arts Academy.
Many of our events have become a yearly beloved tradition, such as the Halloween Carnival, Ensemble Festival, Holiday Sounds, and Annual Recital. Performing in these and other recitals is optional, where students make a personal decision with their teachers and parents as to which recitals they wish and are ready to participate in. Our events are very organized, and they are a lot of fun.
