This is a comprehensive course on studio drumming that allows students to learn and apply pertinent techniques in a studio recording environment. The course covers analysis of today’s top studio recording drummers and producers (Vinnie Colaiuta, Brian Blade, Brice Wassy, Jeff Porcaro, Daniel Lanois, etc.), tuning and miking the drum set, usage of click tracks, performing to prerecorded tracks, drum set reading and interpretation, and auxiliary percussion parts, as well as a variety of grooves and styles, from the generic to odd time signatures to electronic music.
