Course Sample

In short, “technique” describes a streamlined, optimized and most effective strategy of movement as we play the drums. Also, every note is preceeded by a corresponding motion. Finetuning that process in order to realize your musical vision as effortless as possible is what this section is all about. The course teaches you movements from hands and sticks, their proper form and presents a wealth of exercises.

In this topic, you will learn the importance of rebound, which is an extremely important source of energy in drumming. “Rebound” is the word used to describe the tendency of the stick to fly back and “bounce” off the surface after impact.

In this lesson we work on an extremely important aspect: the ability and knowledge to distinguish “informal” from “formal” movements. We recommend watching the video material carefully and digesting the content as best you can!
