MODERN DRUMMING is a practical educational concept that has been proven through many years of teaching and is ideally suited for both drum lessons and self-study. Next to the motivational aspect and the fun of making music, the pedagogic and didactic aspect of truly meaningfully and effectively conveying the contents is the primary focus. Intended for drummers of all levels from beginners to advanced players, MODERN DRUMMING 1 consolidates the most important factors of modern drumming and provides an effective methodology for learning all relevant musical styles. Much value is placed on the advancement of your creativity and the development of your own style. MODERN DRUMMING 1 teaches all standard rhythms used in modern music, covering virtually all musical styles: rock, pop, hard rock, heavy metal, jazz, Latin, fusion, R&B, funk, hip-hop, jungle, house, drums 'n' bass etc. There is also a chapter on fills and licks, and double bass drum technique is covered extensively, as are the relevant rudiments. The book is conceived in such a way that you are not forced to struggle with monotonous exercises forever, but can quickly begin playing rhythms and fills on the drum set. Several drum solos, as well as play-along songs recorded by a live band, allow you to practically apply what you've learned: you begin making music right away, just like in a band. "Of all the drums books I've seen today, this drum school with CD ist the absolute top" (musicmagazine Workshop)

In Listen to This, Alex Ross, the music critic for The New Yorker, looks both backward and forward in time, capturing essential figures and ideas in classical-music history, as well as giving an alternative view of recent pop music that emphasizes the power of the individual musical voice in whatever genre. Ross combines a selection of his New Yorker essays with new material that will serve as an introduction to some basic classical-music concepts and figures and will give an alternative view of recent pop music. It will demonstrate the essential equality of great musical creators in whatever genre. It begins with 'Listen to This', his most famous New Yorker essay, an autobiographical account of his early passion for classical music and belated discovery of pop music in college. It sets forth the themes of the book as a whole: how classical music can become a vital part of wider contemporary culture, how it can survive and even prosper in the face of proclamations of its decline. There follows a new essay tracing the history of the chaconne, a dance form based on a descending bass line, which originated as an erotic Afro-Caribbean dance in the 16th century, then migrated to Europe and inspired such Baroque masterpieces as Bach's Chaconne in D minor, and later found echoes in the bass lines both of 20th-century classical masterpieces and African-American blues. Led Zeppelin's 'Dazed and Confused' and Bob Dylan's 'Simple Twist of Fate', among other songs, extend the principle. This chapter develops, in a less personal way, the themes of 'Listen to This', and serves as a kind of whirlwind tour of five centuries of music history. Third in the introductory section is 'The Record Effect', an account of technology's impact on pop and classical music. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alex Ross.

Boy, do I have a lot to learn! Anyone who's ever picked up a musical instrument of any kind - from the first caveman banging rocks to that little kid at the guitar shop - has thought that. I know I did. I'd been trying for years to break in to the music scene, to show everyone my chops, to make my mark. And I was good. But I wasn't great. I knew that there was something wrong. "Then the teacher showed up. I didn't ask for him. I didn't think I needed him. And all he said he could teach me was 'nothing'. "What happened next, you may not believe...I sure didn't...but that didn't stop him." The Music Lesson is the inspiring story of a young bass player and the lessons he learns about Life, Music, and the Life of Music. Throughout this audiobook is new, original music written by Victor Wooten and a bonus performance by the original supergroup Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Victor L.
