Join us any and every Sunday at Central Street Yoga in Evanston, IL and work through exercises in The Foundational Series Book in a group setting!
Whether you're a seasoned pro or an intermediate-level player these classes can be modified to keep you challenged but not overwhelmed.
We will work on reading in three different time signatures, coordination, polymetric relationships, phrasing, technique, timing, and more.
The Foundational Series is a companion guide to developing a deeper understanding of time. Because the DrumMantra transcends any music style or genre, it will allow whatever music we are playing to be more fluid, solid, and creative.
We will be playing through the various parts of each section of the book including Warm-Ups (8 to 10min each), Short Workouts (7min each), Full Performance Pieces (32 to 37min), Rhythmic Melodies (2 to14min each).
The three sections of the book are in 4/4, 3/4, and 5/4 time. The introduction of the polymetric relationships occurs in Section II and III.
