MMED 773 Playing the Drums: Level 2, Intermediate

3 credits 40.0 hours
700 level graduate course

The course is designed for those who have attained some basic to moderate level of proficiency on the drumset, either as a result of having taken the first level of this course, or having played the drums previously. The teaching is directed towards primarily enabling students to acquire a more advanced level of ability for themselves, and also to improve the skills and knowledge required for group and private instruction and direction of students. Students study intermediate-to-advanced level of technique, styles, improvisation, reading, repertoire, and equipment, including electronic drums. No equipment is required; students will be supplied with a pair of sticks, a method book, and a play-along CD. Each student will sit at their own professional drum set that includes all cymbals and hardware.
