Alfred Inspires Drumming Creativity and Independence with The New Frontier for Drumset

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Friday, January 21, 2011

Alfred Music Publishing challenges drummers to reach a new level of creativity and independence with The New Frontier for Drumset, a new method by world class drummer Marko Djordjevic.

The New Frontier for Drumset teaches drummers to break away from always playing previously practiced licks, patterns, and stickings to broaden their abilities in playing the drums. They’ll increase their understanding and accurate execution of subdivisions, linear playing, odd-meter playing, and phrasing over the bar line. In addition, they’ll achieve greater freedom in soloing, improvising, and composing drum parts, as well as improve their musicality, time and feel, dynamics, coordination, and melodic movement around the drumset.

By the time a drummer completes this book, they’ll be able to get what they hear in their head to immediately translate to what they play on the instrument, without having to be locked into memorized rhythmic patterns or sticking combinations.

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving our environment, this book is printed on 100% recycled paper stock.

The New Frontier for Drumset (00-34861) is now available for $12.99. Pick up your copy at a local music retail store, or buy it today at alfred.com.
