Arul is Preparing for Grade 1 Drums
Arul had a fantastic lesson today.
After only starting to learn the Rockschool Grade 1 pieces three weeks ago Arul put two of the pieces with the backing tracks today and did excellently in maintaining a steady pulse, using the correct techniques and remembering all of the other technically demanding aspects such as syncopation, opening and closing the Hi Hat correctly as well as moving smoothly from Hi Hat to Ride cymbal.
I forget Arul is only just 8 years old as he plays with a musical and technical maturity beyond his years!
Watch this space after Friday November 14 when I will feature him playing the final Grade 1 piece: Monkey Fusic!!
