In this course students improve on foundational skills, building on what was learned in ILPD-217 Brush Techniques with wire and specialty brushes. Studies will include ballad and swing sweeping patterns, as well as patterns that can be applied to jazz waltz, odd meter, Brazilian, and Afro-Cuban accompaniment and contemporary popular styles. Advanced studies in the areas of hand-to-hand development, drum set coordination/balance, textural exploration, listening, repertoire, and transcription studies will also be included in the course.
