Welcome to Jazz Funk Drumming!

SKILL LEVEL: Beginner - Intermediate

Funk Beats In Jazz

My Jazz Funk Drumming drum lessons teach you how to play Funk beats with a Swing feel. This kind of drumming is often called Jazzy Hip Hop, Smooth Jazz or Swinging 16ths Drumming.

In the 1960's Funk drumming started finding its way into Jazz music. It then went on to be used in Jazz-Fusion music and is still used to this day on Jazz gigs. 

We often play this style on Jazz gigs because it's so similar to the Jazz Swing feel.  Many drummers though, don't know how to play with this type of drum feel. 

Learning this type of drum groove will add more skills to your drumming tool box. It's another feel that will also get you more playing opportunities. 

Funk On Drums

Playing Funk on drums in a Jazz style is incredibly fun.  We can use this style to arrange popular songs in a Jazz setting.  This Swinging 16ths Feel is also used in Hip-Hop drumming.  So, you'll be able to use these exact same skills in other genres like Hip-Hop drumming too.
