Summer Groove #5, Inner Drummer




Obviously you have to have rhythm. If you have rhythm, then you can play anything you need. If you have rhythm and you love music, then play and play and play until you get to where you want to get... ~Van Halen



Get into the groove and turn on your inner drummer! There are many ways to get in touch with your inner sense of pulse and to connect to the tempo of the music you are practicing, playing or performing.


One way is to have a rhythm section inside of you that you create for each piece you are playing.

What kind of drums are being used for the rhythms and music you are playing?


Use your imagination to tune into your inner drummer, your internal subdivider and pulse keeper.


What kinds of rhythms enhance and support the music you are playing.

What kinds of percussion would you like to play with; drum set, tabla, maracas, timpani, castanets, taiko...?
