ChairDrumming - Last Christmas

Sample Resources   ChairDrumming – Last Christmas

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 Last Christmas by Wham!
  • Rehearse by lowering to speed of the playalong video from Normal to 0.5 or 0.75

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


Last Christmas – Wham!
