The Best Intro To Jazz Drumming Course Online!

Jazz is an exciting form of music that is both fun and challenging to learn on the drums. Most people who are interested in learning to play in this style don’t know how to get started. If that sounds at all like you, then you are in the right place. This intro to jazz drumming course is designed to give beginner to intermediate level drummers an entry point into jazz music on the drums.

When you listen to most types of jazz music, you will notice that often the drums sound less robotic. The parts are harder to pick out because the drumming is lacking a constant repetition of the same pattern. That’s the essence of jazz music; improvisation. You can’t jump right into improvisation before understanding how drummers approach playing the music. But on the flip-side, you also don’t want to try and learn everything before attempting to improvise. It’s all about setting the skills you learn to music.
