(Percussion). Mark presents a complete system to answer these questions. The book follows a system entitled D.R.O.P.: Dynamics, Rate, Orchestration and Phrasing. Mark pulls apart and addresses each of these building blocks individually, presenting rhythmic concepts that will expand your ability to call on different rhythmic rates and subdivisions on command, move them around the kit freely, and ultimately be able to phrase them in exciting and sometimes complex ways that sound like "polyrhythms" and "metric modulations" but are actually constructed upon a solid foundation of drumming basics. This material will give you the confidence to make a personal statement on the drumset. Adding to this package is live footage of Mark playing with two of his longtime collaborators, Tim Lefebvre (bass) and Jason Lindner (keys). Having played together for years, these three musicians most recently formed the rhythm section for David Bowie's final album, Blackstar. Watch Mark interact with these world-class musicians in electric and acoustic settings as they apply Mark's concepts in inspiring performances. The book comes packaged with a full-length DVD, and the video is also available for download using a code contained in the book.

For over a century, drummers have been turning to a variety of percussive traditions as prompts for the creation of new expressive possibilities on the drumset. In this book, Simon Barker sets out in detail the developmental processes he has followed creating an improvisational language for the drumset utilizing Korean rhythm/sticking cells, aesthetic conceptions, improvisatory codes, and developmental procedures. Barker offers historical overviews of Korean traditional rhythmic forms, analysis of rhythmic structures appearing in a variety of styles, an analysis and chronological account of his development of a 'Koreanized' approach to the drumset, a methodology for performing p’ansori accompaniment on the drumset, an introduction to Korean extended techniques, and a large collection of drumset studies based on Korean traditional forms such as tasŭrŭm, ch’ilch’ae, and ritual music structures from Korea’s East Coast. Barker also explores physical practices employed by Korean musicians which aid in the development of a relaxed, dynamic approach to performance. He creates a framework for creating an alternative approach to drumset education and performance through an engagement with Korea’s extraordinary rhythmic and aesthetic traditions. The volume includes an accompanying CD featuring recordings of developmental exercises, solo drumset improvisations, and ensemble performances, each track representing a subject of discussion within the volume.

Universal Rhythms for Drummers

Written by drummer/educator Dave DiCenso, Universal Rhythms for Drumset is a workbook with a concept designed to help demystify the drummer's creative process. Working from the notion that the majority of Western music is built upon five simple rhythmic phrases, DiCenso offers creative tools that demonstrate how to identify, interpret, and manipulate this five-rhythm alphabet in order to improve one's understanding of rhythm as a language and one's ability to speak it on a set of drums. By applying an innovative eight-step "mastery system" to each lesson, the reader is challenged to go beyond muscle memory and improve cerebral skills such as pulse/space/shape awareness within any groove, fill, embellishment, or solo; getting ideas to flow seamlessly from mind to limbs to drums; understanding the space other musicians occupy to make informed musical choices and create a deeper band pocket. Lessons that include over 500 exercises covering 28 drumming styles are all based upon only five rhythms, and all examples in the book are performed by the author on the included MP3 CD.

This book offers insights into the exciting dynamics permeating creative arts education in the Greater China region, focusing on the challenges of forging a future that would not reject, but be enriched by its Confucian and colonial past. Today’s ‘Greater China’ – comprising China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan – has grown into a vibrant and rapidly transforming region characterized by rich historical legacies, enormous dynamism and exciting cultural metamorphosis. Concomitant with the economic rise of China and widespread calls for more ‘creative’ and ‘liberal’ education, the educational and cultural sectors in the region have witnessed significant reforms in recent years. Other factors that will influence the future of arts education are the emergence of a ‘new’ awareness of Chinese cultural values and the uniqueness of being Chinese.​
