At Lorraine Music Academy, we believe that if our students can use their hands, then they can play an instrument (if they desire to). Through our drum lessons, classes, education programs and courses we bring to our students musical experiences and musical memories. These memories will last for a life time. Our students get excellent training and develop great boldness by being exposed to wide range of musical and creative opportunities. They get exposure through our training programs, workshops, recitals, concerts and public performances. Through music education we wish to provide children with social, knowledge and skill development opportunities. Also, we aim to promote in them a sense of self-esteem, success and pride. Hence we maintain a special learning environment designed to provide a rich and rewarding musical experience for each student.

We have different programs for students to learn the Drums ranging from the Beginners level to Grade-8 level. Here we have a faculty of internationally qualified musicians under the talented headship of Lorraine Fiona Aloysius. She is the Creative Director & Principal of Lorraine Music Academy. Also, Lorraine oversees a regular visiting faculty. They come in from across the globe including some of the top global Colleges of Music & Drama. They teach our students during various periods of the year.

Importance & Relevance of our Drums Graded Exams

As our student’s Drums instrumental skills progress, growth in music theory and musicianship becomes more and more important. It is certainly important in helping him / her to perform with sensitivity, understanding and confidence. Lorraine Music Academy aims to give all our students a thorough understanding of the building blocks of music. This is done by firstly starting with the basics of rhythm and notes. Then next going on to cover harmony and counterpoint, composition, and a broad knowledge of western music. It includes composers and their works, structure, style and period. They are also trained to prepare for scales and arpeggios, sight-reading and aural tests.

Drums Course Assessments through Globally recognized Examinations:

Here at Lorraine Music Academy, we assess all our students through periodic Internal Exams. This is an integral part of our Drums Courses. Furthermore, we also prepare our students for International Exams. World renowned & globally accredited organizations conduct these exams at our Music Learning Centres. They are Trinity College London, U.K., Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (A.B.R.S.M.), U.K., RockSchool, U.K. and London College of Music, U.K.

Drums – Exams & Grades:

Indeed, Graded Drum Music Exams are great for improving a full range of skills and techniques. Moreover, they are great for learning new styles of music and also nurturing your musical skills. Grade Exams and Performance Certificates are available from Entry Level (Debut) up to Grade 8.

It is necessary for a student to possess an ELECTRONIC DRUM SET of their own, in order to practice at home. Regular practice at home is important after each learning session at the Lorraine Music Academy Centre. It is important because the student needs to get ready for the next learning session.

DRUMS

The drum is a member of the percussion group of musical instruments and they are the world’s oldest musical instruments. The basic design of the drum indeed has nearly remained unchanged for thousands of years. It consists of at least one membrane, called a drumhead or skin drum. It stretches over a shell and struck with a drum stick or directly with the player’s hand. This is done in order to produce sound. There is a resonance head on the underside of the drum. Thus we can tune it to a slightly lower pitch than the top drumhead.

Drums may be played by a single person. A player may use a single drum or a set of two or more drums. Some drums like the djembe are always played using a single drum. But other drums like the bongo and timpani are usually played in a set of two drums or more. They are all played by one player. A number of different drums put together with cymbals as a result form the basic modern drum kit.

Drum Kit Set

A drum kit set or a trap set is a collection of drums and other percussion instruments. It is set up for a single player to play. The usual drum kit consists of a mix of drums and idiophones / cymbals. Moreover, more recently kits have included electronic instruments. Thus now both hybrid and fully electronic kits are in common use.

A standard modern kit contains:

  • The snare drum, mounted on a snare, placed between the player’s knees and played with drum sticksrutes or brushes.
  • bass drum, played by a pedal, operated by the right/left foot.
  • One or more top-tom drums, played with sticks.
  • hi-hat stand and cymbals, operated by the left/right foot.
  • One or more cymbals, played with the sticks.

The drum kit is commonly played seated on a drum stool or throne.

Many drummers extend their kits from this basic pattern. They do it by adding more drums, more cymbals, and also many other instruments including pitched percussion.

Well-known producers / brands of drum sets include Yamaha, Ludwig, ddrums, Drum Workshop, Pearl, Gretsch, Ludwig-Musser, Slingerland, Tama, Brady, Sonor, Meinl Percussion, Premier Percussion, Roger, Sabian, Boss, Mapex, Trixon, Craviotto, among many others.

Well-known producers / brands of electronic drum sets / kits include Yamaha, Alesis, Pyle-Pro, Spectrum, ddrums, Medeli, Acorn, Roland, Simmons, among many others.
