Alfred International Drum Rudiments (DVD)
Rudimental drumming is an important facet of any drummer's training. It is the backbone for virtually all of today's contemporary percussive techniques. This DVD clearly demonstrates all 40 of the Percussive Arts Society's International Drum Rudiments. It begins with the "seven essential rudiments" and then expands to the more advanced rudiments. Each rudiment is performed in the traditional manner - open (slow) to closed (fast) to open. Students will find this DVD to be an ideal way to visually and aurally learn and review proper sticking, hand position, dynamics and standard rudimental playing techniques. Percussion teachers, band directors and drum corps leaders will find to be invaluable reference tool as well.
