The Ultimate Hand Technique Workshop, by Henrique De Almeida , is a collection of the most important techniques to be developed by any drummer who wants to masterfully participate in and contribute to the art of drumming.

The book features combined materials from many of Henrique’s teachers, including some of the legends of drumming such as Alan Dawson, Gary Chaffee, Jim Chapin, John Ramsay, Dr. John Wooton, and the great Freddie Gruber. Also included here some of the author’s own creations, developments and concepts learned from studying and teaching the hand techniques of masters such as Joe Morello, Buddy Rich, Louis Bellson, Billy Cobham, Tony Williams, Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Smith, Dave Weckl, Peter Erskine, Danny Gottlieb, and Steve Gadd among many others. The creation of the exercises and concepts was caused by the need to have a very organized practice routine that not only worked for the author, but also for his students as well. The materials presented here are extremely useful and most importantly, musically applicable.

Says Henrique, “This book is what I practice daily and many of the greatest drummers who ever lived practiced as well. Singles, doubles, diddles, Moeller technique, finger control, stickings, rudiments, buzz rolls, flams, push-pull techniques, improvisation concepts, forms and so on and so forth. I have personally attained a tremendous amount of hand technique facility and have successfully passed this material on to literally thousands of students at the Berklee College of Music, in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, where I am a full-time Professor. I have received many praises regarding my students’ abilities and my own hand technique abilities, and my technique curriculum. I have coached some of the best drummers in the industry and I have witnessed incredible results with young students— some of them are now becoming masters of this material”.

This book will better serve the intermediate students, advanced students, high level professional drummers and teachers.
