The purpose of
"One on One" is to introduce, stimulate and connect the performer
player, student and teacher with information necessary for continuous
development. The information in the text discusses various principles and
techniques involving the approach to the drum set. Each chapter is designed
with a specific objective in mind. The information provided is not only
technical, but historical as well. It is therefore my goal to provide
practical, educational, historical and comprehensive information regarding Jazz
Drumming. "One on One" was developed out of the necessity to have a
consistent teaching format for private students, master classes and clinics.
The information in the text was compiled from many years of institutional
training, teaching, personal study, practice, and performing. The text will
emphasize development of technical facilities, coordination and independence,
dexterity, historical contributions and musicianship. "One on One" is designed
for the classroom, private lessons, instruction, and reference. Please enjoy!
