Product Description:

You don't have to go out and buy a drum set to learn to play the drums many items around the house can be a "sound source", or drum, according to this book. This introductory drum course covers instruments, drumsticks, beats, music notation, rhythm, 4/4, 2/4, 6/8 time signatures, coordination, and syncopation too. Before you pick up those sticks, however, the first several pages of the book discuss other rhythm objects and instruments that can be used in place of a traditional drum set. These include: Boomwhackers, bowls, pots and pans, empty cardboard boxes, maracas, tambourines, and other household items and traditional instruments. Once you've found an instrument that will work for you, it's time to start developing your skills in counting beats, and learning musical notation. Along the way, simple practice songs and easy traditional songs are included, offering kids practice making real music. Most practice songs are included on the accompanying CD, so students can hear what the drum music should sound like and follow along if they want to. If your child wants to learn how to play the drums, this is a great introduction that won't cost you a bundle. Jess
