Do you feel like your practice sessions aren't focused, inefficient, and unfocused? Do you feel like you never get as much done as you'd hoped? The secret to practice isn't WHAT you are working on, but HOW you are working on it. Make sure to check out the free DrumMantra Masterclass "5 Exercises Guaranteed to Make You a Better Drummer" at DrumMantr…
 
Are you being hired to do recording sessions? Are you doing drums AND percussion? Sometimes we tend to treat percussion as a smaller overall aspect of the session even though it can sometimes take up to 10x longer to do. Also, make sure you register for the May 31 Masters Session I am hosting with special guest Jonathan Collin Greene!…
 
Linear phrasing is a great vehicle for expressing yourself musically and rhythmically behind the kit. Let's start off with some simple phrasing concepts and isolate the voicings to two instruments to really challenge your creativity. We will also add in some coordination for good measure:-) Don't forget to join us for the DrumMantra intensive on Sa…
 
So many people that I speak with say they are so excited to present their ideas to the world, and they will start as soon as they have a few more things in order. Then they proceed to present a list that is so long and detailed that I know it will never happen. Start now in the messiness of your creativity! Don't wait until things are perfect. You …
 
Most drummers I recently surveyed said they didn't have a clear, concise, and organized practice routine. They also said that when they are in the practice room they have a hard time staying focused and concentration. We need to look at practice from a mental perspective as much as an actual drumming perspective. Join me in my new free master class…
 
We have all been hit with quite a blow. And when I say all, I mean the entire planet. Musicians are out of work. Schools are closed. Restaurants and bars are closed in many places around the country. Grocery stores are empty in preparation for a potential quarantine or lockdown to try to transcend this pandemic called Covid-19. I give a few tips on…
 
We all get stressed about things. Especially things that are last minute, or just around the corner from happening. One great way to deal with stress is to be prepared for whatever it is you are about to do. But not all preparation is created equal. DrumMantra Podcast was named "Top 10 Music Theory Podcasts in 2020" by Feedspot…
 
I have been creating and playing games with students for over 20 years, and this particular one has been a huge hit regardless of the level of the player. The best part of this game is its a blast to play it with another drummer. I call the game Simon and you can join in on the drumming action in this real-time lesson on creating phrases and fills.…
 
Sometimes we get frustrated because all we do is practice and we really want to be playing gigs. Sometimes we are playing so many gigs that we don't have time to practice. Is there a middle ground? Can we figure out a way to benefit from everything we do regardless of what it is? What is Practice? Everything is Practice. Let's investigate. DrumMant…
 
Principal Percussionist of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Josh Jones, was trained from an early age to be one of the greatest percussionists in the world. He is a dedicated practitioner and an extremely thoughtful, intentional musician. We discuss some very deep and insightful topics in this excellent conversation. DrumMantra Podcast was named…
 
In part 2 of this series on the rhythm of the Toronto Airport, more commonly known as YYZ (and more popularly known as the intro to the iconic tune from Rush's Moving Pictures album, also called YYZ.) I hope you enjoy my tribute to Mr. Neil Peart. DrumMantra Podcast was named "Top 10 Music Theory Podcasts in 2020" by Feedspot…
 
In honor of the great Neil Peart, I put together a lesson pack that is based on the intro to Rush's epic song, YYZ, from their album Moving Pictures. The rhythm to the intro is morse code for the Toronto Airport. Please pardon the unexpected emotional response to the untimely passing of Neil on January 7, 2020. He was an inspiration to countless dr…
 
The mind can play tricks on us. It will make us believe we aren't doing what we are, and are doing what we're not. Thinking is like a muscle - it must be developed and trained. Breathing is involuntary but is also voluntary, and thus must also be trained. Creativity comes from within, and we access it through our ability to be present. Uh oh. I for…
 
All of us do it. We wait for the inspiration to hit before we make a move. This of course only works some of the time. What do we do when we aren't inspired? Usually, we make excuses or claim it's "meant to be" that practice doesn't happen today". Building a habit requires concentration, discipline, and patience. These are developed through perseve…
 
Swiss drummer Lukas Landis is a great player, an educator, and a really cool guy. _ He was a test pilot for the DrumMantra3030 course and helped shaped it before it was released to the public. _ The other day Lukas posted a modification for Rhythmic Melodies in the Foundational Series so I decided to make it a new audio download for the book and do…
 
Getting to the practice room is hard enough. Knowing what to work on is sometimes equally as challenging, and having the discipline, patience, and focus is sometimes nearly impossible. In this episode, I give you 5 steps to organize your practice into an experience that is effective and successful.By RIch Stitzel
 
In this, the 50th episode, I present two sections of a brand-new five-part series called "Two-Way Coordination: A Primer". The goal of these exercises is to train the mind & body to pay attention to several things at once - the coordination, the relaxation, the focus, knowing where you are in the measure, the comfort, and the sound quality. We cove…
 
Steve Lyman is an amazing human. He is extremely dedicated to his craft and is driven by creativity, inspiration, and pushing the limits of his comfort zone. Steve was in town to hang with Smashing Pumpkins' drummer Jimmy Chamberlain for a few days and stopped by the DrumMantra Studio for coffee, breakfast, and nice conversation on his way to the a…
 
In this episode I just straight into presenting, discussing, analyzing, and demonstrating the 5:4 polymeter as used in a brand new exercise from my book, The Foundational Series. This advanced modification to Rhythmic Melodies Section III will dismantle your neural net and replace it with a new shiny mapping, but not without first turning your brai…
 
How do you maintain high energy, focus, and drive but also remain patient? In this episode, I recap the last two weeks of craziness and then reflect on a concept that I feel is very important in developing a strong foundation in any discipline. Longevity requires hard work, intense enthusiasm, and patience.…
 
In this episode, I talk about my experience with practicing an exercise every day for 6 weeks before getting it right. Success comes from absolute focus and dedication. The only short-cut is starting today instead of waiting until the time is right. Once you know what you want to achieve or experience, you must fully dedicate yourself to taking the…
 
This exercise is very simple to look at, talk about, and even imagine, but when you actually sit down and try it, it can trip up even the most experienced players. This exercise is filed under a category I like to call "Rhythmic Perception" because I believe the at the majority of the challenge comes from our mental perception rather than our coord…
