Tim Senior: Stick At It - Be A Drummer
We aim to get back to you within the hour, during shop hours (please see store details), to confirm your reservation. If you do not hear from us then please resend the request.
Be A Drummer Book 1 is the official syllabus used by STICK-AT-IT tutors in junior schools right across Cornwall. However you don't have to be having lessons with us to benefit from the great exercises and catchy songs crammed into this book.
Each page has a drumstick practice record. Children are encouraged to colour in a section of the drumstick to indicate every 10 minutes of practice they do. Tutors or parents can then total up the minutes of practice on completion of the book and fill in the certificate accordingly.
Book 1 takes beginners through the basics including holding the sticks correctly, simple rudiments as well as rock beats and drum fills. We also look at note values and rests and make them easy to learn with our cut out 'flash cards'.
Kids will have great fun learning the drums with Be A Drummer Book 1 and at the same time gain a basic understanding of music theory, develop hand/eye co-ordination and get to grips with time-keeping and listening with our play-along songs!
Practising the drums shouldn't be a chore, so have fun from lesson one.
