Foxhill Year 3 Drummers
It was another great rehearsal yesterday with the Year 3 Foxhill drummers.
They have been learning how to play 16th beats. Then we extended this learning by looking at how to incorporate Parradiddles in a 16th beat pattern.
To take this even further I got some students to use the Toms for half bar fills and for the ends if the Parradiddles…..thus is really difficult!!!
Remember these guys are 7 and 8 years old as well!!!!
In terms of fills I really have pushed these guys this last 3 weeks and they have mastered the art of triplet fills with the Bass Drum on the last quaver beat.
As if that wasn’t hard enough I tried them all learning semi quaver triplet fills and they really got it!
The video extract is our first attempt at putting this all together.
Have a look and see if you can spot all those brilliant techniques being played.
