DRUM2604: Drum Set 4 (Extended)

Drum Set 4 (extended) represents the fourth semester of the principle study component of the Bachelor of Music Performance Drum Set. Each semester of study consists of 13 individual lessons with a specialist teacher. The unit will offer students a firm technical and theoretical grounding, a range of problem solving skills, and a variety of developmental processes, thus equipping students with a broad skill set to face challenges associated within an ever changing and evolving music industry landscape. In addition, students will be provided with a broad historical perspective, as well as a large pool of creative co-ordination processes associated with a range of stylistic areas so as to equip individuals with a thorough grounding in time-keeping, motion-based problem solving, stylistic knowledge and ability, and procedural problem-solving and critical thinking.
