Self-Looping Stickings for Hand Development and Dexterity

drums

Overview

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, weak-hand 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.

Mondays 8:15 – 9:45 pm
