Rudiment Creativity Vol. 1 is about achieving your maximum potential as a player and performer. As a teacher, performer and clinician, I have been asked by many drum set students, “Why is it important to learn rudiments?” “What’s the point?” “How are we able to make music the use of rudiments?” Rudimental and orchestral snare drummers regularly ask me, “Now that I have learned these rudiments, HOW do I implement these rudiments on the drum set in a creative way?” Furthermore, most beginning drum students at all times ask, “Do I in reality have to learn these rudiments, and if that is so, why?” As these questions arose time after time, my thoughts turned towards finding a way to demystify and incorporate creative solutions to these questions. Through countless years of teaching, research and constant experimentation, I have found quite a lot of ways to implement rudiments on and around the drum set. The main goal of this book is to present more than a few creative/practical applications of rudiments at the same time as spring-boarding the usage of your OWN creativity.
