    Queens College New York, Jazz program

    Or as it is known, the Lawrence Eisman Center for Preparatory Music. I was told by a friend to check out their jazz program. Apparently they have some strong teachers there, but I've checked their website and there is little information about it. Anyone with any information regarding this...

    In my quest to acquire a good solid jazz cymbal, my eyes turn to Bosphorus. Anyone have any experience and/or review of the Bosphorus Hammer series 22"? I've heard it on their website and it's deliciously gorgeous to my ears... and I found one for relatively cheap and I'm very very tempted to...

    Buying on Craigslist/Ebay

    Suppose there's a thread out there somewhere, but don't think it addresses my question. I'm looking for a kit (look in the Classifieds thread if you think you can help me out) and I'm considering buying online too. Just before I dive head in to it, any warnings/things I should know about...

    Chinese Potatoes

    Is it normal for a China to go potato chip shaped after a while? Mines gone all wobbly looking after some bashing away at it (my first China and it's a cheap one too.. came free with the Meinl pack I bought) And if yes, then how fast do China's normally go potato chip? -KJ

    I'm curious

    to know the reason why this L R L R L R L R L R L R L R is always easier than this L---L---L---L---L---L---L---L R--R---R--R---R--R---R--R (double stopping or flamming btw) I'm sure there's a scientific reason for this. And I'm just curious to know it.

    the left/right stick phenomenon.

    I don't know if this occurs to you guys. Picture this scenario. You're woodshedding and you've got a new pair of sticks. You start off using them and pretty soon (or much later depending on how quickly you wear sticks) you notice that they've started to wear and tear. One stick has got more...

    Unconscious switch

    I looked at my technique today and found out something interesting. I've subconsciously and unintentionally switched to a middle finger fulcrum from an index finger fulcrum in my right hand. I've no idea when I made this switch.. it's just weird. And all my strokes and speed feel completely...

    When everything you know is 'wrong'

    Hey guys! Just started my first day at MI... and I'm AMAZED at how differently they expect you to play than what I've already been hearing and doing almost all my drumming life. I may be wrong on most of them, and it's good to know how it really works, but then again there are just some...

    Your hall of fame!

    I'm not talking about drummers that you would like to put up on your wall. I dunno about you guys, but I have this habit of keeping stuff that I've used or broken as medals or trophies or something. Broken sticks, broken skins, cracked cymbals.. I know all of this is junk, but I kinda like to...

    open handed - low hi hat - 16th beats

    Hey all I've encountered a problem with a student of mine. He's learning to play open handed with the hats on the left hand and has gotten accustomed to a rather low hi hat. It's about 2 inches or less above the top of the snare. Now I've started moving to 16 beat rhythms, especially the ones...

    loss of chops at high dynamics

    I was recently doing a session with a church camp a couple of days back. It was one of the first times I actually played in a really large hall. I mean really large.. this place was like 10 badminton courts big. The sound was insane and I have to say if it wasn't for the soundman, it would've...

    New students - old habits

    Once again another address to the teachers of Drummerworld. I have had several cases where I've had to take up certain students because their old teachers resigned or had conflicting schedules. Well I've come across a few examples where the previous teacher was obviously not very well trained...
