Self-Looping Stickings for Hand Development and Dexterity



Drummer Alan Hall has spent a lifetime practicing and developing various hand warm-up patterns for himself and his students. Having gone through legendary drum teacher Alan Dawson’s rudimental ritual, he has a solid grasp of these types of drills. They help with dexterity, weakhand improvement, and general rhythmic flow and ease around the kit. We will discuss applications ranging from pad work to grooves and soloing. Students will develop their own patterns as the class proceeds.

The Word

“John Gove is an incredible professor with extensive knowledge in jazz theory. He teaches theory how it should be taught, which is direct application to your instrument in a playing context. I’ve never taken a better theory class with such a fine professor.”
