Preschool

Overview

The early years are crucial for children’s musical development. A quality preschool drum education provides children with opportunities to build self-confidence, coordination techniques, learn critical thing skills and develop learning dispositions. These build a strong foundation for children’s future music journey.

MDS seeks to raise the early awareness to rhythms and beats through our engaging preschool drum curriculum. Through time, the child develops coordination and timing through a series of interactive exercises that will keep him or her involved and actively participating by playing along with the lesson.

At the end of the preschool course, our students will receive an evaluation from our drum educator on his/her development, and graduate to the Junior Programme.

Preschool Level : EARLY COORDINATION

Good foundations are essential for the modern drummer. The child will be introduced to music and drums by learning:
