Intro to Drums – cdza music

Watch more with these video collections:

The cdza music team is at it again with the second episode of their series The Instrumentals: Intro to Drums. After introducing the drum set, drummer Allan Mednard compares and contrasts two kinds of rhythms: rock and jazz. 

It’s a great series and fun to narrate for pre-readers; the kids’ only suggestion is that we should be much closer to Allan and the drums. Play this full screen HD to see some details of what he’s playing and how.
