Jazz is a genre that all drummers should try. You’d be surprised how many concepts and techniques transfer over to other genres (yes, even heavy metal). From independence to dynamics, working through these exercises is sure to enhance your playing.

This lesson is the most important jazz lesson you’ll ever take. Why? These patterns and exercises are the foundation to 99% of everything you play in this genre – so focus in and grind these puppies out!
