Like the material in the first book, this course introduces 3/4 and 6/8 time, tempo signs, dynamics, ties, dotted eighth notes, four new rhythms, drumset notation and two beat rhythm. It also reviews old concepts and introduces many new songs. Songs include familiar favorites ("Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," "Old Macdonald" and "If You're Happy and You Know It", as well as some lesser-known songs and cultural beats like Sha Lee Hung Ba (Chinese), Paru-Parog Bukid (Filipino), Tarantella (Italian), and La Bamba (Mexican), are included.

Category Description for Alfred's Kid's Drum Course:

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. Book 1 of this introductory drum course covers instruments, drumsticks, beats, music notation, rhythm, 4/4, 2/4, 6/8 time signatures, coordination, and syncopation too. But first, use the first several pages to find other 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 more. Once you've found an instrument, 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. 48 pgs, pb. - Jess & Janine

Kids love - great course - easy to teach
Even just a good general music course to learn rhythm and how to read music, but it’s also great that it has music that our kiddos can play along with while they clap or use any kind of objects to drum on. Can move on to a drum or drum pad anytime they’re ready.
