A Fresh Approach to the Snare Drum" by Mark Wessels is the most comprehensive method available that simultaneously provides instruction for rhythm reading, technique fundamentals, rudimental training, coordination and musicianship necessary for today's well rounded percussionist!
original
This lesson deals with applying the Controlled Rebound Stroke that you learned previously to triplets. Stanton demonstrates how to use the Moeller stroke style to get a nice, relaxed "accented 3" feel that will enhance your groove on any triplet based feel. Includes exercises to work on the independence between the accented 3 ride pattern and the feet or opposite hand!
original
If you're just getting into the fundamentals of Afro-Cuban music, this is the pack to get! You'll learn all the basics: from clavé to cascara, tumbao to abanico - ALL the rhythms have an important translation from the original instruments to the drum set and Stanton explains them all!
Includes the sheet music for every tune, video lessons and demonstrations from Stanton Moore and "with drums" and "drumless" play-along tracks!
original
Stanton demonstrates the "heel-up" and "heel down" approach to playing the pedals - plus shows you his own hybrid technique that he uses in his own playing. A great lesson, even for more experienced players!
original
Sometimes trying to play your first rock beat is difficult if you haven't worked to develop some independence between your limbs. In this lesson, you'll learn how to play a solid "ride pattern" on the closed hi-hat and put some snare drum or bass drum notes with it. Including play-along tracks that make learning fun!
original
Every drummer should know some basics on how to play with brushes! Stanton demonstrates common sweeping patterns & plays a great brush solo that'll inspire you to learn even more!
original
This lesson covers Caribbean Style: Calypso, "Caribbean Nights" Play-along Track, Caribbean Style: Soca, "Soca Dance Party" Play-along Track, Caribbean Style: Reggae, "One Drop Reggae" Play-along Track.
original
This is one of the most fundamental techniques you must learn to be able to control ghost-notes on intermediate to advanced rock & funk beats! Stanton demonstrates this three note pattern, then applies it to several grooves using the controlled rebound as the ride.
original
Advanced grooves often require that you be able to play a ghost note immediately following a strong backbeat. Unlike the triple "rebound stroke" that you learned in the previous controlled stroke exercises, this technique is quite a bit different. Stanton describes the control points in the fulcrum and gives you several exercises that immediately applies this technique to a triplet groove. This lesson also covers an important rudiment that applies this technique: The Swiss Army Triplet!
original
Fundamentally speaking, it really doesn't matter how great your technique is - if your drums are tuned like old cardboard boxes, you'll never sound good! Stanton demonstrates how to tune your drums to create a nice balanced sound across the entire kit.
original
Most great drummers know how important it is to learn your rudiments - but the problem is that a lot of the rudiments don't immediately apply to the drumset. Even though you MIGHT be able to figure out a way to make a Double Ratamacue sound interesting on a fill, the rudiments that WILL apply to EVERY groove and fill should be the ones you spend the most time on.
original
Another Essential Rudiment that every drummer should know! In this lesson, Stanton demonstrates how to learn the Five Stroke Roll with a traditional "double stroke" approach, then with multiple bounces. To show you how he applies the 5 stroke roll to his every day playing, Stanton melds a traditional "military march" into a very hip New Orleans 2nd line cadence that'll have you jumping back to the practice pad! For beginning as well as more advanced players!
original
A "Drag" (sometimes called a RUFF) is one of the most prevalent rudiments used on the drumset. Stanton shows you how to play a clean "open" drag, then buzz it to create some great sounds to fills around the kit! A great lesson, whether you're a beginner or advanced player!
original
Learning to apply accents to the paradiddle sticking is an important foundational element to learning to play other rudiments. Stanton takes you through the basic strokes, shows you how to achieve speed with this rudiment - and demonstrates how applying accents to other sticking patterns can create some great grooves! A great lesson for even advanced level players!
original
Two of the most useful rudiments (especially in a jazz context) are the Paradiddle-diddle and the Six Stroke Roll (with the relaxed, "triplet" interpretation). Stanton shows you how to apply these two rudiments in a jazz context!
original
Stanton introduces you to the first three ESSENTIAL rudimentals: Single Strokes ("single stroke roll"), Double Strokes ("double stroke / open roll") and Paradiddle. Using a relaxed rebound stroke, these rudiments are easily approachable by all beginner drummers - yet is essential for even the most advanced players!
original
No matter what level of a player you are, you should have some advice on how to grip the sticks properly. Even though it seems like a fairly natural act, there are lots of considerations to make when you pick up the sticks! Stanton takes you though his grip - and talks about the pros and cons of matched AND traditional grip.
original
Everything you could ever want to get started the right way! In this lesson, Stanton takes you on a tour of the drumset, demonstrating all the possibilities for sounds that you can create with the drums and cymbals. He also discusses the sticks and other implements, gives you practice tips, shows you how to set up your kit and gives you tuning advice to make it sound good. Finally, Stanton shows you how to hold the sticks using the matched and traditional grips.

An essential element of the jazz style is snare or bass drum "comping" underneath the ride cymbal and hi-hat patterns. This lesson includes 2 full pages of comping patterns (practically every combination of triplet based rhythms that you'll ever run into), which will develop independence between the limbs. Stanton shows you how to apply these patterns in real world musical situations. Also included are 6 playalongs, recorded at various tempos that you can practice with!
