Course Overview

Get into the groove and span genres with professional drummer Matt Dean. Revive the disco years with a simple-but-funky paradiddle groove; take a cue from modern virtuoso Aaron Spears; learn how to master the bombe clave for a 6/9 Afro-Cuban beat; then adapt to the 3/2 clave of bossa nova. You'll learn the basic beat and get some tips on how to adapt these drum beats for jazz, latin, funk, rock, or whatever genre of music you play. All lessons come complete with sheet music.
