In a Dancing Mood for the Beginner on the Drum Kit
Chmura In a Dancing Mood for the Beginner on the Drum Kit
This album for children (and teenagers) is intended for beginners on the drum kit, the most popular form of percussion. The composer has deliberately avoided advanced playing techniques (e.g. drum roll or double strokes). A choice of tempos enables students to adjust the difficulty of the piece according to their ability. As the title of the album suggests, the students are supposed to interpret the pieces in different dance styles (tango, polka, waltz, cha-cha, waltz).
As an experienced and respected teacher, Tomáš Chmura uses the "play-along" method of teaching: recordings make it easier for beginner drummers to read the notation, get a sense of the composition as a whole and facilitate practising.
Mp3 recordings of all the pieces are available on our website in two versions - for piano with drum kit or piano solo. The latter recording can also be used in concert performances, should a pianist not be available.
