This book has been written to help drummers understand the tools of the trade available to them from a hand technique point of view. All too often i see students that have been playing for many years who don’t even know anything about grips and general technique.

 

The book covers:

  • Matched Grip
  • Free Stroke
  • Moeller
  • Stick heights
  • Practice
  • Real world practical ideas 

Plus many more tips gained from my studio with the master Dom Famularo.

 

To order or for more information please email richard@rawstudios.net with the heading Book.

 

Richard endorses Paiste Cymbals and Vic Firth Sticks.

A very unique evening - Russ and Ian deliver two masterclasses of brilliant contrast, including close audience participation, dedicated Q & A session, musical performances with bass player, Kev Walker, and drum duet finale. Held at the new media centre of The Echo Factory, it's going to be an amazing evening!

 

Starts 19.00 Ends 21.30 (How can it end at 21.30 when Russell is involved? I know that's what I thought as well).

 

Tickets available here.
