Student Recital Video: Tommy M plays 12/8 Rolls

One things that grooveKSQ students will learn is a lot of rudimental drumming and technique, as that informs almost every other musical drumming style. In this video, we see student Tommy M, who is playing a 12/8 rolls exercise at a high level.

Notes from our first Drum Circle

First, a huge thank you to Emily Spahr and Caryn Cziriak for facilitating groove’s first drum circle. We’re all looking forward to doing another one in November, and that date will be identified shortly.

We had an enthusiastic group tonight, and it was a blast to watch the interaction and communication happening between the players without any verbal cues at all. This is why music in general and percussion specifically is such a powerful force.

Here are some images from tonight’s drum circle…
