This intensive meets for four 1-hour sessions.  We will discuss and play the material from section one in great depth and detail. Each week is broken down into a detailed outline of exercises that will be worked on.

The Level One course is designed for very serious high school & college students to full-time professionals. A basic knowledge of stickings, accents between hands, and simple 8th & 16th note reading is recommended.

  • PLACE: Vic's Drum Shop, 345 N Loomis St, Chicago, IL 60607

The benefits from this intensive include a vast improvement in:

  • rhythmic awareness (knowledge of subdivisions and accent displacements)
  • coordination (between two hands and one foot)
  • timing (consistency of pulse through the development of muscle memory)
  • accuracy (consistency of volume, dynamics, and subdivisions) 
  • focus, clarity (deeper understanding of pulse, and rhythmic placement)
  • endurance (extensive development of muscle memory through long periods of repetitive playing)
  • patience (overcoming the urge to "skip ahead" when something seems easy)

The special price for this intensive is $125 and includes:

  • 4 one-hour sessions (one per week)
  • 1 copy of The Foundational Series Book
  • over 2 hours of MP3 play-alongs
