the basics of drum programming

Drums are the essential element of any genre of music that can greatly influence the vibe of a song. In this session, we will learn the basics of rhythm, sequencing beats, layering sounds, syncopation, and how to be creative with your beats. We will also explore the different ways in which you can build drum ideas in Ableton, i.e. using drum racks and samples.

Attendees must provide their own laptops and headphones.

Sessions are open and free to the public with RSVP.
