Drums Performance – Stage 1, Foundation 2
At Stage 1 Foundation 2 in Drums Performance, learners will be able to perform pieces to a backing track that are longer than Foundation 1. Technical requirements will require 4-way coordination and an increased number of drum voices. Rhythms will be further developed to include triplets. They will also demonstrate theoretical knowledge of the performance pieces by showing musical terms and directions, and where and how they are used. In addition, they will show stage presence through the addition of appropriate body language and awareness of an audience in their performance.
