Product Details


With The Drum Master Key, Florian Alexandru-Zorn has compiled a comprehensive teaching system using a modular structure to pave the way towards fluency in all musical genres. The individual chapters provide access to a broad spectrum of musical styles beginning with fundamental rhythms, and progressing through dynamics, polyrhythms, and displacements to create a technically and musically satisfying daily workout.

To avoid inflicting an interminable sequence of exercises on percussionists, this volume features conceptual learning, designed to extend their knowledge of note values and guide them in the application of stickings to improve their timing. Through this process of self-discovery, exercises are truly mastered and an essentially rhythmic vocabulary are acquired, allowing the player to explore new and enhanced forms of percussive expression in any style.

This volume compels percussionists to think differently and with this greater sense of self-awareness, enhancing existing knowledge while building a secure foundation for future development.

Florian Alexandru-Zorn has developed a personal and systematic approach to developing his rhythmic vocabulary on the drumset. With The Drum Master Key, Florian has documented his concepts in great detail and they are now available for like-minded drummers who wish to expand their rhythmic awareness and abilities.
