Sample Resources   ChairDrumming – Paradise

About this sample resource

This sample resource is part the ChairDrumming resource collection.

ChairDrumming is great for developing rhythm, pulse and co-ordination, leading to the transferring of these skills to a drum kit.  It’s also lots of fun too and has been used widely in schools with pupils of all ages, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this playalong you will learn how to:

  • Use the video tutorial to master some of the fundamentals of drumming….using a chair!
  • Play along to one of our energetic ChairDrumming tracks of a popular classic whilst developing the basics of playing the drums ready to transfer to the real instrument
  • This ChairDrumming Playalong is for Paradise by George Ezra

If you’re new to ChairDrumming we recommend viewing our Introduction video at the top of this page.
