KIKO FREITAS – DRUM LESSONS
“The idea of doing my App came from Pedro Lima, from Actual, after we met up in some shows I played in Porto Alegre. I thought that the project was very interesting because it is a new type of language that can bring high quality information to many people in a quick way, direct and easy to access, besides the fact that the app is made in partnership with a firm of great competence and responsibility such as Actual. I thought immediately in a beginning lesson that could make clear all the types of stroke and show their application on dynamic controls, on grooves organization and on a more fluid expression of the hands. I think that the apps are a revolutionary way of learning, in which the student can pick the topic he wants in an objective and simple way, and also choose the teacher that he wants to study with. On class, the student can choose the subject that he wants to work, hear the concept of the exercise and go along with the video and the written example. This first app is directed to snare drum studying and it intends to cover an area that, in my opinion, Brasil is lacking a bit: the way of execution and basic movement of the hands, not depending on the type of exercise or groove to be played. In times of mass information, it’s important to have the “how to do” thing and not the “what to do” thing.”
