Complicated hybrid rudiments are just combined layers of various basic skills. Often times, students try to play the more complicated hybrid rudiment before they have a thorough understanding and grasp of the “skeleton” inside the rudiment. This creates issues in sound, timing, and height clarity. The secret to playing these hybrid rudiments well is to not jump straight into at the performance tempo, but to instead start from the bottom and gradually build up to the top.

This lesson shows you how to create a Musical X-ray for more complicated hybrid rudiments. From it, it will give you the ability and confidence to tackle any hybrid rudiment you might encounter

I just wanted to send a quick shoutout to say that I LOVE everything that you’re doing on social media. Aside from how informative and useful all of the information is for young percussionists, I think your method gets people excited about drumming and it’s fun to see you truly make an impact in the drumming community.

     It also gives me inspiration to believe that everyone’s journey with music is what you make of it and whatever you want it to be! Best wishes to the family and I’d love to get together next time I’m in LA!

Thanks, Matt – your note made my day. Let’s definitely get together next time you’re in town 🙂
