Product Description:
Geoff Nichols, of the Rock School series from BBC TV, hosts this comprehensive video on how to play the drums. He names and describes the components of a drum kit, from the essential firsts of the bass and snare drums to the tom toms and different cymbals, explaining their proper care. Moving beyond the groundwork of equipment and maintenance, he discusses the knowledge and skills for playing and cites some of the ingredients to success including how to grip the sticks, tune the drums, read music, and understand basic beats and variations, even offering suggestions for successful improvisation. The video closes with a performance in which the viewer can witness Nichols putting the knowledge he shared to use in a personal performance.
