Fun drum cover by Alicia

Updated: Jun 2, 2020

We just recorded another drum cover with one of my students. She did a great job! Just about a year ago we recorded an easy song by Coldplay. She improved quite a bit since than. What is interesting about this performance is that we tried to practice it pretty much note for note the way the original drummer played it on the recording. She is using a chart, but most of it is memorized. When she just started learning the song we slowed down the tempo to make sure double bass technique feels comfortable, and all coordination patterns and grooves sound clean. It was also important to catch all the accents with the rest of the band (Alicia played them on the bass drum and crash cymbals. The next step was to bring the composition up to the original tempo. Your comments are welcome :)
