General Information Welcome to Big Drum! Big Drum classes provide a fun positive, creative and encouraging learning environment through music and percussion. Big Drum is an exciting program offered to all children from grades 1 to 12 in the greater Edmonton area including Camrose/Wetaskiwin and Sherwood Park. Throughout the year students will have opportunity to experience the magic and excitement of exploring various instruments, musical styles and techniques from around the world. We will draw on many musical influences from around the world including Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, South America, Japan, India and anywhere else that captures our attention. We also draw heavily from typically western music styles such as classical, jazz/blues and pop. The majority of class time will be spent on learning and playing music with some basic essential theory being covered as needed. The amount of material covered during the course is extensive and may vary according to age, ability and work ethic of the group. © 2009 all rights reserved
