Zildjian Cymbal Anatomy
Have you ever wondered what separates the types and styles of cymbal? This workshop will delve into the anatomy of the cymbals, and will specifically look at ranges, types, sounds and the application of cymbals.
The Beauty of Drum Grooves
Drum Grooves are what separate the metronome from the drummer. Groove is mostly about feel and gelling with the rest of your Rhythm section. During this workshop, Leighton will look into the beauty of triplets and how to implement them.
Additionally, he will look at rudiment fills, tuning basics, stick choice and much more. This is the perfect workshop for any new or intermediate drummer.
