Mark Guiliana – Exploring Your Creativity on the Drumset
Over the past month or so, I’ve been getting into the new eBook/video by Mark Guiliana – Exploring Your Creativity on the Drumset. Mark Guiliana is an acclaimed drummer, composer, educator, producer and has recorded and performed with the likes of David Bowie, Meshell Ndegeocello, Gretchen Parlato, Avishai Cohen, Matisyahu, Lionel Loueke, Now vs. Now, Dhafer Youssef, and his own groups, Beat Music and Heernt.
In this eBook, Mark Guiliana presents a complete system to explore the concepts of creativity, improvisation, rate and rhythmic control and finding your own voice. The book follows a system entitled D.R.O.P.: Dynamics, Rate, Orchestration and Phrasing. Mark pulls apart and addresses each of these building blocks individually and presents the concepts in a clear and thorough manner.
I’m really connecting with this material and can highly recommend checking it out!
