Two-Way Time Function Coordination
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.
Three-Way Time Function Coordination
While you may be learning to play Rock patterns and Jazz or Latin and other Master Classes or lessons it is important that you systematically study your time function coordination. These are systematic exercises and while they are preparing you for the future, they can also be used in patterns and fills as you progress. The body motions learned in the Hands class are utilized in breaking down the 3-way time function coordination exercises.
Four-Way Time Function Coordination
These 4-way coordination exercises will open the door to future advanced patterns and make them easy to play. Learning to lead with both hands will give you amazing freedom in playing patterns. As noted in the fundamental lessons, you can go through these exercises first with just your natural lead hand, and for extra practice go through the lessons with your alternate lead hand. Play each exercise repeatedly for several days until it feels completely natural and you can play it at various tempos.
