The New Frontier for Drumset is a unique method in that it aims to break you away from always playing previously practiced licks, patterns, and stickings. In doing so, your creativity will be challenged in ways that will broaden your understanding of the instrument. This makes it one of the most comprehensive drum methods available today. With this method, you'll achieve greater freedom in improvising and composing drum parts; improve your musicality, time, feel, dynamics, coordination, and melodic movement around the drumset; and increase your understanding and accurate execution of subdivisions, linear playing, odd-meter playing, and phrasing over the bar line. This book will surely help you become the best drummer you can be.
"With an emphasis on vocalization, improvisation, mental focus, persistence, patience, and integrity of the subdivision, students of The New Frontier should see a great expansion in their musical vocabulary."
- Susan Martin Tariq, Percussive Notes
". . . The New Frontier addresses the often sought-after need to expand our rhythmic vocabulary in challenging but tangible ways. Taking what’s here and building on it should be a satisfying first step." Four Stars.
