The teacher will lead a discussion about the importance of the rhythms of the drums in identifying and establishing the style of the music.

The students will watch the Top Drumming Styles video demonstrating some basic drumset grooves as a class. The teacher lead a discussion with the class to identify some of the important distinguishing features and techniques that define each style.
