By Paul M. - Orlando Drum Teacher
Although it may not have the stature of Los Angeles, Nashville or New York in terms of musical pedigree, Orlando, Florida - with attractions like Disney World and Universal Studios - is one of the top tourist destinations on the planet, with a rich and varied entertainment industry. And with this comes an array of opportunities to see, hear, learn and play music if you are interested in taking drum lessons in Orlando. Since rhythm is the foundation of all music, and drumming integral to most genres of music, you have the opportunity to learn how to play drums from some amazingly talented musicians who each contribute to the vitality of the Orlando and Central Florida music scene and are TakeLessons Certified instructors.
Orlando has had a thriving local independent rock scene for several years now, with groups like the recently disbanded, Lakeland-based Copeland among those at its helm. With venues and clubs like Amway Center, Hard Rock Live, The Plaza “Live” Theatre, House of Blues, The Social, Club Firestone, BackBooth and Will’s Pub, to name a few, top acts from all over the country and world come through town often as a stop on their tours.
Some famous musicians who either came from, lived, or currently live in Central Florida are Gram Parsons, considered the founder of “country rock,” and the reverberations of whose brief but extremely influential career are still felt to this day: Liberty DeVitto, who provided the steady and sturdy back beat for Billy Joel for most of his legendary career; and Roger McGuinn, the founding member of the great seminal 60’s band The Byrds (of which Gram Parsons was briefly a member).
Music is and has always been a big part of Orlando’s cultural landscape, and TakeLessons Certified Drum Teachers are helping to further this rich musical heritage. So what are you waiting for?!
