Happy New Year to every Drummer and Percussionist out there!
This year I will feature many free “mini lesson” videos on a huge variety of drumset and musical topics.
I will also be uploading performances of my many student ensembles from Jazz to Afro-Cuban and Brazilian Percussion to Led Zeppelin Ensemble!
Additionally, I will soon begin a series to feature many of my former students and their many musical accomplishments!
Drumset Lessons with Rob Brosh
My approach to teaching drumset lessons for every individual student includes a complete program to develop the many skills the complete drummer must have.
Students learn on drumset:
1. Four-way coordination (how all four limbs work together)
2. Many music styles: rock – pop – funk – hip hop – jazz and various Latin styles (emphasis is placed on student’s favorite styles)
3. Various techniques of movement around the drums for fills and solos
4. The styles and techniques of many legendary drummers through recordings and drumset transcriptions
Students learn on snare drum:
1. Hand technique (from basic to advanced)
2. Sight reading skills
3. Etude books (from entry level to advanced)
4. Rhythm and meter concepts
All of these areas of study are essential for developing a complete drumset player that can excel in the music style(s) that he or she loves to play!
One other really important thing – you have to have FUN learning to play the drumset!!
This Month's "Mini" Drumset Lesson
Here is the third of many free “mini” drumset lessons (go to the archived lesson page to see earlier lessons) that Rob offers on a variety of topics for beginners to intermediate to advanced players.
In this lesson titled “The Eighth-Note Problem,” Rob demonstrates how a basic eighth-note groove can be approached with various layers of sound. This allows drummers to create interesting sound combinations and play “for the music.”
In drumset lessons with Rob, you will learn various approaches to gaining strong four-way coordination and a complete rhythmic vocabulary to paly tlday’s many musical styles and genres.
