This taster lesson will cover everything to get you started:

Setting Up The Kit: Where each drum and cymbal goes is vital to ensure your comfortable playing and that you minimise the movement between each drum to make it easier to play.

The Straight 4/4 Groove: A basic rhythm that is fundamental in drumming, and we'll look at different variations of the groove too.

Drum Notation: You'll find out the basics of what all those dots and lines mean in written drum notation.

What Else Drumming Requires: I'll run through all the skills you'll pick up as you progress including co-ordination, dynamics, performance skills, consistency, good timing and good communication among others.
