Introduction to Rock Style Drumming is a system specifically designed to enable beginning drummers to develop the ability to play rock style music. The objective is to develop coordinated independence between the hi hat or ride cymbal , played with the right hand, snare drum , played with the left hand, bass drum , played with the right foot, and hi hat pedal , played with the left foot. Lessons include 376 rhythm patterns written for snare and bass drum. The snare and bass drum part is played independently against straight eighth notes played on the closed hi hat or ride cymbal. Four rhythm patterns are written in four measure phrases followed by a sixteen measure summary. Every lesson builds on those that came before, giving students a chance to practice what they have learned and reinforcing skills that will be used over and over. ©2008, Book & CD, 104 pages.
