Workshops

Drums&Co.ch provides all instruments workshops throughout the school year  

These workshops are for any person  who plays an instrument or who sings, wishing to meet other musicians in order to learn how to play together in a group, without worrying about age or level issues.
Drums&Co.ch students, outside musicians and singers will be led by a music teacher who is also a certified professional coach.
All students, all participants will benefit from everyone’s performance, while progressing at their own pace.
The idea is to be in a concrete situation like in usual band.

In a harmonious environment, with predefined goals, the coach supports and puts each participant at ease.
She allows each and everyone to identify their own strengths, overcome difficulties, find their own ressources and make their own talents emerge.
The idea is to mobilize oneself in order to give the best and improve performance.
Firstly, the coach suggests simple structure songs, with few chords.
Sheet music and lyrics are provided.
According to the group , the coach can form smaller groups, for examle, singer can be asked to work on harmonies in a room while the drummer, bass player and guitar player work as a rhythm section. The coach goes from one group to the other and then brings them together.
The songs that the coach suggests allow as well to creat an interaction between back-up singers and the lead singer.
The simple structure songs that are chosen are prone to improvisational moments. The person improvising can express him/herself freely, while being guided and supported by the coach.
The coach uses phonetic rhythmic solfege to work on the pieces, tricky passages, riffs, bass lines. Therefore, the playing becomes more precise, the band plays together, like one and the same.
