Music Education

Music education is very important in the development of the individual in their following years as it is in pre-school ages. People who are introduced to music at an early age progress more in the development of their talent and their creativity. The fact that children perceive and react to rhythm education, in fact, means revealing the sense of rhythm they were born with. Being able to convey the rhythm in the same manner they hear, timing, keeping up with the tempo, acting and stopping with the music, and learning how to listen are the cornerstones of rhythm education. As a result of these practices, the child’s sense of time and memory improves; their concentration enhances; they learn how to listen, and they learn group work. Thus, a child can harmonize as an individual in a group, develops self-confidence, socializes, discovers their talents, learns to share, and control themselves. Studies have shown that music education also contributes to the development and success of the individual in other areas, such as increasing concentration, socializing, and self-expression.

Rhythm education is a basic education in music. In order for individuals to develop their rhythmic skills, listening skills, and their creativity, they need to be guided correctly. If the instrument in question is the drums while teaching rhythm, holding the drumsticks correctly to produce clean and corrects sounds, the proper sitting position, using the correct stroke techniques with hands and feet, notes, and form are taught. The correct approach of the instructor is very important at this point. Although musical talent is innate, it can be improved with the correct guidance and education.

It is important to take one-on-one lessons from a master instructor. Avoid group lessons other than workshops. Do not prefer group lessons since every individual has a different perception and level of skill. It is an indubitable fact that the subjects learned by individuals who take lessons regularly will help them create their own music.

Upon deciding to play an instrument, using education videos on the Internet to try to play rather than taking one-on-one lessons is a wrong first step. You may not know which information to learn and in which order to learn by yourself. There is a lot of information on the Internet, and it cannot be said that all this information is true. You will have an idea of which training videos can be useful only after you have reached a certain level.

Lessons are one-on-one. In the studio, there are two acoustic drum sets which are positioned across from each other. The topic of the lesson is explained theoretically. The instructor plays the topic on the drums. After that, it is played together with the student. It is repeated until the students understands the topic. Then, the instructor stops playing, and checks the technical positions, such as the way the student is holding the drumsticks, the technique of bass drum strokes, and the angles of the hi-hat strokes. If everything is in order, the rhythm is played in different tempos and dynamics with background music so that it is thoroughly understood.

Technique and musical note education are the two basic subjects of the course content. Apart from these, form education is given, accompanied by playing along to recordings with no drums. Students perform on stage with the instructor’s band, and play songs suitable for their level.
