A drum set has many elements. But of course, each element makes many different sounds. Just like our recent course "Exploring the Hi Hat" where we looked at the many different ways to get different sounds out of one element, this time we are doing the same thing with this crucial element of the drum set - the snare drum. Being a very expressive instrument, and indeed, one of the elements that we use the most, we need to look at all the sonic possibilities that are offered by this versatile instrument. In each lesson in this course, we will check out different ways to produce many different sounds and exploit the snare drum to its full potential in a variety of playing situations.
