In-depth Rhythm Studies opens new doors to understanding rhythm within time. Through diligent practice of the exercises in this book, you will learn several ways of approaching time keeping beyond the traditional methods, and you will increase the capacity of your brain to process data from multiple sources at the same time. Each of the five Rhythm Studies promotes different but related skills that all work toward the ultimate goal of improving reading, developing 5-way independence, and strengthening our relationship with the Master Code of Time. By becoming proficient with the concepts of this book, you can find yourself in league with the most renowned of session and solo musicians. What you do with these skills musically is solely up to you.
Following my methods will foster a better understanding of your instrument, its possibilities, and your role as drummer in the larger musical picture. While your musical individualism is important, it is equally important to be able to learn parts quickly and accommodate other musicians and producers. The better you are able to do this, the more likely you are to succeed as a drummer in the modern music industry.
