This instruction package is based on an approach to Rhythm and Drumming which I developed from my Rhythm, Percussion and Drumming workshops.

The purpose is:

  1. to enable you to understand the basic principles of Rhythm.
  2. to give you the means of understanding Rhythms you listen to.
  3. to create your own Rhythms, individually or in a group, using hand drums or other percussion.


This approach to drumming has several different aspects:

  1. developing equal control in both hands.
  2. exercises useful for individual or group work.
  3. working as a group.
  4. time cycles which are unusual in Western music.
  5. devising your own rhythms.
  6. developing interesting cross-rhythms.
  7. developing a balance between intuitive and mental faculties while playing.
  8. sustaining rhythms for long periods of time.

The teaching package comprises a CD with the audio exercises given in the accompanying instruction booklet. The price is £10 inc. and you can buy it by clicking on the Paypal button.
