Independence 1

This course will prepare you to easily play your first beat and apply simple 2-way coordination to both your hands and feet. These fundamental independence exercises will also enhance your time function and coordination.

This fundamental semester starts very simply, even if you have played for years, do not overestimate 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. 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, then revisits the lessons with their reverse lead hand.
