Improve Your Groove


Combine technical facility and musicality to develop your sense of “feel.” Explore the more subtle aspects of what makes a groove feel great, using both swing and straight-eighth grooves. Areas of focus include developing control of ghost notes and accents, playing ahead of and behind the beat, playing “in the cracks” between straight and swung, and more. Prerequisites: basic drum set facility, familiarity with standard jazz, funk and rock grooves.

Mondays 8:15 – 9:45 pm
1/11 – 3/21 (10 weeks) (no class 1/18)
