MWI 537 – Playing the Drums: Level 2, Intermediate

July 22-26, 2024

The course is designed for those who have attained some basic to moderate level of proficiency on the drumset, either as a result of having taken the first level of this course, or having played the drums previously. The teaching is directed towards primarily enabling students to acquire a more advanced level of ability for themselves, and also to improve the skills and knowledge required for group and private instruction and direction of students. Students study intermediate level of technique, styles, improvisation, reading, repertoire, and equipment, including electronic drums. No equipment is required; students will be supplied with a pair of sticks, a method book, and a play-along CD. Each student will sit at their own professional drum set that includes all cymbals and hardware.


Daily Schedule

MWI 537 will meet in person at West Chester University from July 22-26 from 8:30-4:30. An overview of the daily schedule is forthcoming.
