Designed to support and encourage musical development, Drum Smart is a complete educational resource for learning to play drum-kit. We work alongside accomplished musicians and teachers with years of experience in the educational sector, who thoroughly understand the requirements of instrumental learning. Our ethos is to make learning graded drum-kit and music notation available to all! Whichever exam board you are working towards, these programmes will provide additional practice ideas and give a detailed view of the requirements for each grade.
Drum Smart offers an intuitive learning experience, enabling students to learn on their own terms and at their own pace. Use the practice diary to record how much time is spent practicing, and to make notes on progress made.
Audio clips throughout Drum Smart help students understand tricky rhythms and grooves. There are also full audio recordings of every solo piece. No need for a network connection — everything is included within the app.
Use the touch screen drum-kit to practice all rhythms and coordination exercises. This is a valuable addition for drummers who only have access to a drum-kit at school. There is now no excuse for not practicing at home!
Drum Smart is a teacher-approved app! Extend and enhance your pupils’ understanding of the drum-kit with each engaging instalment, containing vital information needed for each corresponding drum grade exam. The required rudiments for each grade are introduced, explained and solidified throughout the individual apps.
Each main chapter is followed by a performance piece which covers everything from the previous chapters. These pieces are written to be performed. Performance of the instrument will enhance the learning experience for the student, as well as being extremely fun to play!
Learn Through Play
Each Drum Smart app includes an entire section dedicated to educational games. These games allow the student to interact with the app and reinforce their knowledge in a fun and relaxed environment. Find key words in the wordsearch, match musical notation to its proper names in the matchup game, or test your memory and musical knowledge with the pairs game!
