Drums , PERCUSSION INSTRUMENTS, are the world’s oldest and most ubiquitous musical instruments, and the basic design has remained virtually unchanged for thousands of years.
Drums are usually played by striking with the hand, or with one or two sticks with or without padding. A wide variety of sticks are used, including wooden sticks and sticks with soft beaters of felt on the end. In jazz, some drummers use brushes for a smoother, quieter sound. In many traditional cultures, drums have a symbolic function and are used in religious ceremonies. Drums are often used in music therapy, especially hand drums, because of their tactile nature and easy use by a wide variety of people.
In popular music and jazz, “drums” usually refers to a drum kit or a set of drums (with some cymbals, or in the case of harder rock music genres, many cymbals), and “drummer” to the person who plays them.
We have drums classes every once or twice a week children are trained to appear for Trinity Grade Examinations every year.
