Welcome to the Jazz Drumming Patterns Course!

SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate - Advanced

Jazz Drum Patterns

My Jazz Drumming Patterns course takes your playing to another level. Learn how to use each of your limbs in more creative and musical ways.  After completing this course, you will have a lot more fun playing the drums.

Jazz drumming is often described as 'independence drumming' because it seems like we can use each of our limbs independently from one another.  The truth is, our brains memorize patterns of our limbs playing together.  

The more drum patterns we can learn, the more we can do on the drums. Jazz drumming has some of the most difficult drumming patterns of any style of music. For this reason, learning Jazz drumming will improve any style of drumming you want to play. 

Why Is Drummer Independence Important?

Modern music and drumming has become more complex and the skill needed to succeed in drumming has increased in recent years.  Having greater drummer independence will help you succeed on any drumming opportunity that comes your way. 

My drum lessons will help you move beyond simply playing basic drum beats.  You'll be more musical and be able to interact with the music and other musicians much more.  Your Jazz drums comping will also improve a lot. 

Drums Independence Lessons 

There are 8 drum set independence exercises that progress from easy to difficult. Each of the lessons also has a PDF with the exercises written out for you. I've even thrown in a drumless track and two real playing examples from gigs I played. 

Improving your coordination on the drums will improve the quality and quantity of your playing opportunities.  Sign up today and free yourself to really play what you want to play on the drums.

Try my Afro-Cuban Latin Drumming course too.  It'll take your drum set independence even further!
