Re: Tips on drumming and inspiration please.

I find that sometimes it is a wish vs action scenario. Some people may wish to lose weight, but the actions of exercise and healthy eating equals the results. If someone wishes to get better at an...

Re: Acoustic Treatment

I noticed that Mike Johnston, Pat Petrillo, and yourself have the acoustic foam on the bottom portion of the wall. I really like the way it looks with the bottom third being foam and the top...

Re: Teachers, do you force Crossed hands on beginners?

Mine was about half of retail price or less. I bought it used on craigslist. Of course, I bought both vehicles and my RV used too. I guess I like a deal.

If you think of lessons as a monetary...

Re: Whaley Intermediate Snare Drummer - stick heights?

Stick height and velocity are relative to the situation. For example, if I am performing with a brass quintet plus percussion or a jazz trio, the interpretation of forte would be much different than...

Re: Teachers, do you force Crossed hands on beginners?

Again, you are the voice of reason! As Todd said, why learn things two different ways when we have access to remote hi-hats. Especially for a beginning student, it can be challenging for them...

Re: Day of Percussion

Day of Percussion

Just checking to see if anyone is going to the Virginia/DC Day of Percussion on Feb. 8th or the Maryland/Dlelware Day of Percussion on March 2nd. I should be able to stop by. Here is a link for...

Re: Advice on becoming a teacher

Todd has some excellent advice, as always!

I don't think you gave us much information about your background. A few questions:


Do you read music - rhythmic and/or melodic notation?


How...

Re: Unisons

You would probably like Accent on Accents - Books 1 and 2 by Dahlgren and Fine. Lots of material similar to your examples.

Re: Drum Off 2013 Ideas

I thought you were kidding, but I looked it up - there was a girl playing violin on a pogo stick.

Re: Tama RythymWatch - 3/8?

You should be able to set it to 60 and have it click triplets. I have the Dr. Beat metronome, but I believe the Rhythm Watch is similar.

Re: tips for my son

I'm not sure that you've given us enough information in order for us to offer advice.


Does he play by ear or can he read music? Not being able to read music will hinder his progress. It is...

Re: Master Studies - How many reps do you play?

Yes, Stone's equation really makes sense. If one doesn't have the first part of it (precision and accuracy), the repetitions will not be as beneficial. As I tell my students, you will get better at...

Re: Master Studies - How many reps do you play?

Even though I usually don't time them, I would say I do each one for about a minute and a half to two minutes.

Joe would assign a tempo range, so as you became comfortable with the exercise you...

Re: Master Studies - How many reps do you play?

I studied with Joe, so maybe I can help to answer your question. Joe was first concerned about the correct rhythm and technique of each exercise. You should take each exercise at a tempo that you...

Re: Anyone here a member of P.A.S.?

The great part is (with a membership of course) you can view issues of Percussive Notes from 1963 to present online.

Re: PASIC 2013

I'll be there. I'll be at the Vic Firth educator meeting on Friday. And I'll spend some time at the Alfred booth throughout the weekend.

The rest of the time, I'll be at the clinics!!!
