In this extensive series of lessons, Mark Wessels, author of "A Fresh Approach to the Snare Drum", takes you through the most fundamental aspects of playing the snare drum. "A Fresh Approach to the Snare Drum" is currently one of the top selling methods in the U.S., with over 12,000 units sold annually!
Even if you're a skilled percussionist, we recommend that you take the time to view each lesson and put into practice the concepts that Mark establishes from the beginning. Building upon the very basic skills, each new video will logically progress to higher levels of technical and reading abilities, introducing new exercises and rudiments along the way.
This is a collection of 7 short video lessons by Mr. Glynn from the BasicBand website on how to get started playing percussion, plus one short video from Vic Firth on getting started on the snare drum. Mr. Glynn has created a collection of friendly introductory lessons on many instruments, including the Flute, Clarinet, Alto Sax, Trumpet, Trombone, and Percussion.
