Drum Channel Method: Level 300 $29.99

This book is designed to build on the material learned in the Drum Channel Method levels 100 and 200 to aid in the development of the intermediate drum student’s understanding of the fundamentals of playing the drum set. This book consists of five main topics: technique, vocabulary development, notation reading and general music terms, independence, and repertoire development. Students continue developing the fundamentals of the sound quality, body motion, hand and foot technique. Music notation already learned is drilled in musical rudimental Etudes. Students develop vocabulary on the drum set via stickings and set ups, and hone their technique by practicing exercises designed to promote proper hand and body motions. Bass drum and Hi-Hat exercises as well as hand and foot combinations are studied to continue to develop the interdependence between the legs while reinforcing the appropriate bass drum motions and sound quality. Finally, all of the concepts learned are applied to the 18 play along songs contained in this book.

Level 300 guides students through intermediate and advanced concepts. Students who are ready for this level understand and can implement basic hand and foot technique, play single and double stroke sticking concepts, can read rhythms from 8th notes through 32nd notes, and play common rudiments.

About The Drum Channel Method

Welcome to the Drum Channel Method! This innovative method teaches the How, What and Why of playing the drum set. Each course consists of five main topics: technique, vocabulary development and rudiments, notation reading and general music terms, independence, and repertoire development. These concepts are universal to the instrument and are needed to play effectively in all musical genres. Students develop and expand the critical fundamentals of sound quality, body motion, and hand and foot technique. Music notation is introduced and drilled in musical rudimental and orchestral exercises and snare drum Etudes. Students develop vocabulary on the drum set and hone their technique by practicing exercises designed to promote proper hand and body motions. As you progress through the method, bass drum and Hi-Hat exercises, ostinatos as well as hand and foot combinations are studied to continue the development of the interdependence between the legs while reinforcing the appropriate bass drum motions and sound quality.

Through this curriculum, students gain access to the concepts and material author Mike Packer has used throughout his 30 plus years as a player, clinician, private instructor and faculty member at various institutions in higher education. The goal of the series is to create an inclusive carefully constructed curriculum that properly guides the student from the very beginnings of learning the instrument to being prepared to play professionally and further their study in higher education if they choose to. Additionally, it is an excellent curriculum for teachers to use with their students.
