How to vastly improve students' creative melodic independence.

Can you say four-way coordination? This book will vastly improve students' creative melodic independence and help them broaden the musical possibilities of improvisation through theme and variation. This is an in-depth look into jazz comping, using melodies that stress the second triplet note. Each "system" is designed to help drummers prepare for the world of highly rhythmic band improvisation.

This intermediate to advanced level book includes hand warm-ups, flam warm-ups, swing prerequisites, triplet displacements, and much more.

Audio examples are available for download.
