Another new Training Track in our webshop!
14 May 2016
Colin has composed another Training Track - this one to accompany shuffle fills in subdivision 6222.
We have launched a new training track in our webshop - a shuffle loop for practising the triplet fills on page 27 of Drumsense Vol 1, with opportunities for playing the same fill in a different way at the end of each four bar phrase.
My first introduction to drumming was seeing the Buddy Rich big band on tv, from that moment on I was hooked. My drumming career began at the age of 12 with the pipe bands, where I received a good grounding in rudimental drumming and won many solo drumming events.
In order to expand my drumming I performed and studied drumming in various other fields of music involving drum kit and hand percussion, playing with local function bands and in jazz and cabaret shows.
I have 18yrs experience as a Military musician (Group Leader drums/ percussion) in the South African Defence Force, performing at all military and state functions, as a band member and solo performer. Highlights included:
Composing and performing drum salute for Nelson Mandela’s 80th birthday celebrations.
Several Edinburgh Military Tattoos including the Queen Mothers 100th birthday celebrations.
South African solo drumming champion 1982, 1994, 2004, 2005.
Original founder member who drew up and created the nationally used IDMAC evaluation syllabus.
Presented training workshops and seminars for the S.A.N.D.F as well as the Pipe Band Association of South Africa.
When in SA I led my own percussion group “DRUMCODE” who performed at various festivals throughout the country. I also recorded and toured with the Gospel group “HEBRON”. More recently I have been performing at various Celtic festivals and workshops in Italy.
I specialise in all forms of rudimental drumming and pipe band drumming at all levels. My approach to teaching is to present a more creative way rather than a mechanical approach to the drum rudiments, to enable the student to utilize them in a musical way, also stimulate their imagination and creativity so he/she can add these tools to their tool box, to become a more complete drummer , no matter what style/level they aspire to perform at.
I feel the Drumsense programme is a structured and essential tool in the process of development ...
