Showcasing Rock & Pop 2018: Drums

19 Jul 2017

Following the release of our first video showcasing some of the songs included on the new Rock & Pop 2018 syllabus, Trinity has just launched the next in the series, for Drums.

In this video session drummer Matt Brooks – who’s drummed for artists including Nicole Scherzinger, Meghan Trainor, Raleigh Richie and Marcus Collins – puts his spin on songs on the Drums syllabus, and gives his professional opinion as to why they’re so great to play. The songs covered are: ‘No One Knows’ by Queens of the Stone Age, ‘Don’t Wanna Fight’ by Alabama Shakes, ‘Uptown Funk’ by Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars, ‘Under The Bridge’ by Red Hot Chili Peppers and ‘Sir Duke’ by Stevie Wonder.
