Jazz Drumming is designed to help today's rock, pop, and R&B drummer learn the jazz idiom quickly and efficiently. It is an inclusive and in-depth study of how to authentically perform alongside a rhythm section within jazz's popular styles and forms.

This package includes a set of detailed charts, and each composition focuses on a particular musical form, drumset sound, solo concept, and comping approach. Genre relevant, drumset-based rudimental voicings, solo transcriptions, and simple brush patterns are also presented. After completing this study, the reader will be able to perform within a jazz ensemble - and sound like they belong there!

Jazz Drumming is part of the Essential Concepts series from Musicians Institute Press, the official line of Southern California's renowned music school, Musicians Institute. The Essential Concepts series is designed from MI core curriculum programs, offering expert knowledge and experience for higher learning.

Donny Gruendler is Vice President of Academic Affairs at Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA, and he is also a member of the Modern Drummer education team and a frequent columnist for the magazine.
