AIMM's Drum Programs - Much More Than Drumming Lessons
AIMM has two immersive and hands-on Percussion Programs:
· Music and Technology Associate Degree: Drum Concentration
· Drum Performance Certificate
Let's talk about each music program a little more.
Music and Technology Associate Degree: Drum Concentration
The Music and Technology Associate Degree: Drum Concentration is the perfect drum degree program for musicians that want to increase their drumming speed and technique, learn the very best rhythms, get their foot in the door of the music industry, and learn beneficial music production techniques.
AIMM is one of the only Georgia Music Colleges the blends organic drumming instrumentation with music production instruction. As an AVID Pro Tools Training Partner, AIMM offers all of the insider techniques and professional approaches when it comes to recording, mixing, and mastering. Just imagine being able to professionally mix your own drum tracks!
Each graduate from AIMM is properly equipped to take on the music industry and create a successful drumming career.
Drum Performance Certificate
Not interested in audio engineering, sound design, or music production? No worries!
We also offer students the Drumming Performance Certificate. This certificate will help you master your on-stage presence, improvisational abilities, and technical skills.
This includes music theory, rhythm, wrist techniques, bass drum techniques, kicks, rolls, drum beats, grooves, speed, and more. Drummers set the tempo and keep everyone aligned - essentially they are like the quarterback or point guard of the band. AIMM's immersive Performance Certificate ensures you're always ready and prepared to take every musician around you to the next level.
Also, the certificate is a fairly short program. It can be completed in 12 months, so you'll be back out gigging again before you know it.
