At the conclusion of our FUNdamentals program students can take on a simple drum solo incorporating all of the necessary skills they learned up to that point (reading, counting, independence, etc.). Unlike the previous notations this one does not use the “drum tablature” that was presented along with the written music. Although this solo was written with kids in mind it’s fun to play for all ages. The exercise is also featured on the accompanying DVD. Both examples are included here.
