We present to you a unique opportunity to access the course with the essential rhythms every drummer must master, led by renowned drummer Anika Nilles.
With this course I would like to introduce you to a system I like to call “The Power of Groupings” and give you insight into my approach to building musical vocabulary around the drums. Groupings are a great tool for building interesting melodic grooves, fills and phrasing and can be helpful when playing over bar lines. With so many options of groupings to work with, the intention of this course is to focus on just one: The Group of Four, and show you the wide range of possibilities that it offers.

A group of four is a very common rhythmic structure in many styles of music, and is a great place to start in the world of groupings as you are likely already familiar with it on many levels. The process of applying different combinations of stickings, accents and ghost notes to this grouping will create an array of rhythmic melodies that you can easily use for tasteful fill-ins and groove-based material.
