My students all have a shared love of music. They are bright, eager, young students who want to learn how to play music. My students come from a low socio-economic community in which enrichment programs such as instrumental music can be vital to their overall personal growth. Through their participation they not only learn music but also skills that are transferable to their personal and academic lives. My students enjoy expressing themselves through the gift of music daily in school.
I always tell my students that practice will help you grow into a better musician. For percussionists it is often tough to practice because many consider them to be too noisy or instruments cannot be taken home to practice as are traditional band instruments. The best way for my students to progress on drums is through the use of snare and quad drum practice pads.
I have 30 inspiring drummers who want to be the best drummers they can be, but often the music they make is considered "noise" by others.
The Quadrupeds and double-sided practice pads will allow them to get their practice time anywhere!
