Garry Chaffee - Technique Patterns
In Technique Patterns, the student is challenged with a variety of routines designed to increase technical in the hands and feet. Included are exercises on finger control, endurance, multiple-note playing, hand-foot combinations and more. The Patterns Series The four books contained in the Patterns series have been designed to help students in developing an awareness of the types of materials currently being used in contemporary music drum performance. Through the books, many suggestions will be made concerning how these materials can be applied to the drum set. Students should feel free to experiment with these possibilities, as well as any other ideas that they may come up with.
It is important to understand that the books are not sequential and can be worked on in any order. Also, it is not necessary to complete one book before moving on to the next. The various topics that are presented can be worked on in whatever order is the most appropriate for the individual student.
