This review is from: Pat Petrillo Learn to Read Rhythms....Better! (DVD)
I just finished watching MOST of Pat Petrillo's new DVD, "How to Read Rhythms...Better" and it is everything it claims to be- a comprehensive, concise visual explanation for reading rhythms! Pat's patience and attention to detail facilitates his logical progression from the basics to complex rhythms. Plentiful exercises at various tempos and with a novel note pointer give the viewer lots to practice. This DVD would best be suited for anyone that was afraid to learn how to read rhythms (or afraid to admit so!) as well as Intermediate drummers looking to firm up their reading foundation. Teachers should find this DVD to be useful to study how an experienced teacher such as Pat explains reading topics, and could well use the video, or parts of it, with young students for reinforcement or as a change of methodology. I highly recommend this work which will leave you saying, "Why didn't I think of creating this!"
