    Default solo music

    i've found two songs that i absolutely LOVE and am working on editing the together. what i'm wondering is if it's ok for a beginner to do a drum solo? i love the piece so much that i fell like i HAVE to use it. I will be getting help from an instructor on the choreography.

    any opinions?

    How long will they end up being? Drum solos only as a performance piece are very challenging and run the risk of making your audience weary and tired.

    like 30 seconds to a minute... to add to the length of another song

    And how long would the 2 songs be together? 30 seconds drum solo is very doable for a beginner, even a minute, but it would depend on the piece over all.

    That sounds good, 5 minutes is a good general range to keep in mind for a performance.
