Re: MuseScore

Yes it's a good program for writing music considering it's free. I use it to write exercises for my students.

But some drum notation on this software can be quite difficult to write though.

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Some of my observations on the technical and realistic bits of the movie:

1) Your hands can't bleed that much from too much drumming (unless you cut yourself). I'll probably suffer from RSI first...

Re: 8 years of professional teaching - time to give it away

Re: It is technical or psychological?

+1 to the above.

It would help you a lot too if you invest on private lessons at this stage. I didn't had any formal one to one instructors for the first 5 years of playing, and I used to think...

Re: Yet another practice thread

Very good suggestions from the last two posts. You can definitely work on your other senses of musicality, or anything related to or may inspire you.

On top of what others said, I was going to...

Re: Jazz and Matched Grip

Just like how many drummers are now using traditional grip to play metal, it doesn't really make any difference which grip you use to play a particular style of music, as long as you are comfortable....

Re: Traditional grip for rock?

I wouldn't say so. I started out playing matched for 2-3 years before switching 100% to traditional grip. I was playing everything(rock, jazz, metal, etc.) in traditional at that time before taking...

Re: When have you truly 'mastered' a given BPM?

Hmmm, 'mastering' a specific tempo. Something I've always wondered in the earlier drumming years, but after 2 years of intense tertiary level study, I just don't buy this tempo mastering thing.

Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

Re: Using Left Foot Hi-Hat, Does It Help Improve Time?

+1 for Bermuda. I also rock my left heel to 8th notes when I'm playing guitar or just rocking out to tunes. It eventually becomes a habit - rocking out to eighths.
