The Modern Drum Set course offers challenging material for the intermediate to advanced drummer. Addressing a multitude of styles it will help guide your playing to a higher level while improving your technique and raising your awareness of cutting edge concepts such as metric modulation, displaced beats, polyrhythms, and more. "The more you know about different styles and the inner workings of time and phrasing, the better your ability to contribute to the music at hand. The clearer you see the parallels or the common threads that tie these concepts together, the more freedom you will have to express yourself." This course is in progress.

Linear Drumming is the practice of playing single lines horizontally. It just means no two voices are played simultaneously. Most of what we do fill wise is linear, but this concept that Gary Chaffee first brought to my attention in the 80s can provide a wealth of modern sounding material. Think Gospel Chops.
