There are many great books available with exercises for the drum set using your hands and feet. This course will prepare you to easily play those books as we teach you how to play combinations of hands and feet in a way that will enhance your time function and coordination. This fundamental semester starts very simply, even if you have played for years, do not over estimate the importance of revisiting these basics. Just playing a simple beat, and playing it with a great feel, is the difference that often defines a drummer’s success.
*Note: Many of these lessons will show you how to lead with the right or left hand. Beginning students can focus only on their lead hand (right hand if you’re right-handed). Then revisit the lessons with a reverse lead.
