A Brief History of the Jazz Drumset
Tuesday January 19th, 2010 - 7:00 PM
Featuring a talk and performance by Brian Hamada

From its origins in the early 1900s to the present day, the drum set is arguably the first instrument to be invented to play jazz with. Its evolution mirrors the timeline of the emerging American Musical art form: Jazz.  Focusing on the innovators of the instrument throughout recordings and demonstrations of key rhythmic styles, we will present an educational and vibrant overview of the foundation for all popular music, the drum set.
