ESCS SPRING CONCERT
Thurs, June 14, 9am
Both percussion classes featured on their own cadence with solos!
Welcome to the ESCS Drum Line webpage.
These students are making history! ESCS has never had a drum line before, and we're trying to lay the foundation for years of awesome drum lines to come.
It takes more than just whacking a drum, as these students have found out. You have to develop good basic skills: stick grip, different drum strokes and patterns, how to divide a beat, combine parts to make cool grooves. Nothing can be taken for granted. It's not easy, but the payoff is huge, and these students are realizing that it takes dedication and effort to make a drum line a reality!

Here is a simple yet amazing drum line,
featured during C&W singer Keith Urban's concerts:
Hip Hop Drumline
Looks way loose at first glance, but look closer and you realize
it takes a LOT of technique and control to look this cool!
THEN, WE'VE GOT...
The immortal drum legend, Buddy Rich,
taking a blazing solo towards the END of his long career
(if only we all played so well - see drum roll at 3:25)
Master of melodic drumming, Jack DeJohnette
The Groove Legend, Steve Gadd
(Try to keep the beat with your foot and listen to how he plays with it!)
The King of Swing Drumming, Gene Krupa
He's got it all: Stick tricks, suspense, and a violinist in the band
(you KNOW I approve!)
LOTS MORE TO COME!!!
