Jazz Drumming

Jazz Drumming

Jazz is a style of music developed in the United States when people from Britain and Europe forcibly brought Africans to the United States.  Their knowledge of music collided with European music and orchestral instruments, resulting in a sound never heard before.  An example of this is the use of the trumpet, traditionally an orchestral instrument, but in the context of jazz this instrument achieved a sound and status that liberated it from its Pan European confines.

Jazz drumming is an eclectic centre that draws musical elements from Classical, Folk, Afro-Carabbean, and Latin.  As one can expect, Jazz drumming is a vast and diverse discipline, involving many different strands that come together to form a wide ranging and  exciting contemporary drumming genre.
