If you walk into any school, the primary or only drum set opportunity is the jazz band. This series covers the fundamentals of playing jazz, and corrects the misconceptions that plague drum set education.
Created with the assistance of Marc Dicciani, you will break down jazz on the drum set in a way that allows you to showcase your strengths on the drums. You will learn how to lock in with your best friend, the bass player, and cover various common comping ideas.
When you’re done, you’ll realize jazz isn’t as hard as expected – it’s just different.
