Whether you’re a first day beginner or have been playing the drums for several years, learning the fundamentals of technique, rudiments and music reading is very important. From gripping the sticks properly to learning the essential rudiments, Mark Wessels uses excerpts from his popular method, A Fresh Approach to the Snare Drum to provide a solid foundation for successful drumming skills.
Even if you’re a skilled percussionist, we recommend that you take the time to view the lessons from the beginning and put into practice the concepts that Mark establishes from the beginning. Building upon the very basic skills, each new lesson will logically progress to higher levels of technical and reading abilities, introducing new exercises and rudiments along the way. Test your mastery along the way using the prescribed exercises, rudiments at the tempos required for each lesson.
