Advanced Drum Set Studies

A conceptual-based approach to instruction regardless of stylistic preference. Removing blocks in your performance, facilitating definitive changes in your performance habits that allow you to move to an improved next level.

  • Balance - Use of anatomy to maintain the body's center-line balance, with minimal postural sway. Understanding weight-shifting, use of gravity & balance affecting "time-placement". Controlling balance, motion, and rhythm.
  • Movement - Elliptical movement enables better muscular relaxation & economy of motion. Single Surface straight line & angular approach does not "translate" well to drum set.
  • Time - The regularly recurring pulse over which rhythmic syncopation is superimposed
  • Focus - Well-defined, goal-oriented use of one's time & effort to achieve consistently-excellent results. The principal of "process", as "habit becomes nature". Disciplined Focus is a result of habit.
  • Fluidity - Avoiding antagonistic muscle movements, using principles of ergonomics, gravity, momentum, inertia and rebound to your advantage. Applying those principles to the "stick-to-hand-to-instrument" relationship. Similar application to pedal(s), each has its own balance and tension. When all is set in motion, they require little energy to propel. Once in motion you learn to control it, moving beyond the body and affecting musical groove and feel.
