We will focus on how to play proper tones, and how to understand rhythm in the body and the mind. Great warm up for Intermediate drummers, with emphasis on finding the pulse, building strength, basic skills and tones. 

6:15-7:30pm - Intermediate: For those who have been playing for about a year or more, and who understand how to play the proper tones on their drums (bass, edge, muted), and understand concepts about rhythm.

7:45-9:00pm - Advanced:  For those who have been playing at least three years, can maintain a rhythm while others play a counter rhythm, and are comfortable playing in odd time rhythms.
