VicFirth.com is a great educational resource for percussionists. Their educational videos feature mallet, drumset, marching and percussion instruments. There is something for everyone, including the Mallet Literature Library which has already been featured on Percussion Education.
This post features a new series on jazz drumming with the AHA! Trio (Steve Houghton, Steve Allee and Jeremy Allen).
From the YouTube description:
In this video, Houghton, Allee & Allen discuss how they shape & sectionalize the tune – from the “Art Blakey” straight ahead swing style with rhythmic hits into an Afro-Cuban 6/8 style. Including insights into how a trio can create a fullness of sound with lots of energy – yet not overpower each other in volume.
Be sure to check out the full performance of “Brother to Brother” below.
