Kids will play hand drums, shakers, woodblocks, maracas and even get to try drum set. They will get to work on playing as a group, individually (if they would like), try some call and response and learn some very basic rhythm reading. The main thing is that they have fun! This class is great for teaching the students about rhythm, how to follow directions/listening, working with others, and just enjoy music.
The next Pre-K session starts the week of June 19th. The cost for the 6 classes will be $100.00.
Kids will explore many musical avenues through singing, movement, and playing piano while participating in fun and creative group activities like songwriting and musical story telling. They will begin to learn the names of the piano keys and learn to recognize some basic music symbols. Each class, kids will get to play along with some of their favorite songs and will be introduced to blues, classical and world music. This class is a great way for kids to gain experience working and playing with others, following directions, and thinking like musicians.
We take groups of people who are interested in group hand drumming. You can put together a group of friends and we can facilitate some group drumming for you. We will teach you how to play hand drums and how to put that together in a group setting. This is a very popular activity for women and their friends, great for kid parties and also a great way for guys to get together with their friends for a night. Prices vary.
At ZFDS, we believe in a well rounded education. Each of our lessons are catered to the individual student as we understand that everyone learns differently.
We cover rudiments, orchestral percussion, latin, jazz, funk and rock studies of all levels and whatever the student may be interested in learning. We make sure that all of our students are able to read music and learn whatever is needed to be the best drummer they can be.
Our percussion ensembles meet once a week for rehearsal at the studio. We currently have group ensembles for student 5yrs-adult. All ensembles learn how to play steel drums as well as work on pieces that involve hand drums, hand held percussion instruments and also “found objects” such as buckets and car break drums. Being in an ensemble helps the students work on group playing and put’s to use what the students are learning in their private drum lessons.
