The on-line lessons I offer allow you to work on your technique,
to give new ideas, to improve your skills, and give you the opportunity to incorporate the exercises into your playing.
The exercises have been designed to help you gain greater independent facility with the second foot.
I would suggest that you start playing the exercises at a certain tempo until they
feel comfortable. Play as long as it takes to get a good understanding of what you are playing
Remember that both snare drum and cymbal (hi-hat) are just as important as the bass drum and participate to complete an overall drum groove. When creating patterns in a solo try not to play bits and pieces of memorized exercises.
Eventually, try to exchange simple hand and feet movements by playing simple grooves or a short solo without the aid of the exercises.
