At Eagle Rock Music Studio, we offer percussion lessons for those of all skill levels. If you are an experienced drummer who is looking to diversify the palette of percussive instruments you can claim as part of your arsenal when you are a hired hand in the studio, or if you are a newbie who is just starting out, Eagle Rock has something for you.
Ever since humans have existed, we have been making noise, and since it’s so easy to bang out percussion noises, it’s well within reason that percussion could be one of the oldest, if not the oldest, forms of musical instrumentation our species has contributed to the planet.
The number of instruments in the percussion session of an orchestra is pretty vast: the timpani, snare drum, bass drum, cymbals, triangle, tambourine, glockenspiel, and xylophone are all included. Since percussive instruments are played as a result of striking, many of them contribute to the rhythm of the music, but in cases like the xylophone, melody and harmony can also be contributed to the mix. In the studio, the more percussive instruments you have in your arsenal, the more you can contribute to the recording process.
At Eagle Rock Music Studio, our approach when it comes to teaching percussion is to help our students dream it and then do it. We tailor the lessons to the needs of each individual student; we have the patience to guide a student through the necessary steps it takes gain the necessary expertise. Our mission is to help students discover what genres and styles they are most passionate about learning to play and to provide a supportive and encouraging learning environment for students while they are in such a critical state of growth.
It takes hours of practice to develop a high level of proficiency with percussion, but actually mastering these skills requires an action plan developed with a teacher, who will help identify your goals and then assist you with working toward completing them.
