Hand Technique - Basic Body Motion

 

 

Basic Body Motion - Fundamental

Lessons 1 - 9: Introduction to Motion and How to Strike the Drums
Lessons 10 - 15: Individual Arm Motion to Prepare for Rudiments
Lessons 16 - 20: Applying Arm Motions Preparing for the Long Roll


It is important to understand that the drums are the instrument that creates the sound and the drummers body is the instrument that plays the drums. These lessons will show you how to use your body to motivate and follow the bounce of the stick. They are the foundation for developing your technique, your time and your groove. We suggest you spend one week on each lesson so they become natural for you. At the beginning of each practice session you should quickly review the first three lessons to be sure you’re holding the stick, turning your wrist and allowing the stick to bounce as you proceed. It’s easy to get so involved in what you’re playing that you lose focus on how you are playing it. The better instrument you make out of yourself, the more musical you will be able to play.
