The Musical Drummer

musical-drummer

Develop your sense of musicality as a drummer. While difficult to define, this is a quality ascribed to those drummers who make the others around them sound great. Masters like Roy Haynes, Tony Williams, Elvin Jones and Jack DeJohnette are discussed, as well as contemporary players such as Bill Stewart and Ari Hoenig. Explore a wide variety of concepts, including time feel, meaningful interaction, melodic soloing, dynamic balance, and the development of an individual sound. Prerequisites: basic 4-limb coordination and some jazz drumming experience.

The Word

“I truly appreciate what the Jazzschool has to offer. Having the opportunity to work with a great jazz trio in our classes, the open mic sessions, and the final performance make this learning experience incredible.”
