Dave Goodman Drumming Workshop - 'The Magic of the Stick'

 —  —

The Music Gallery, David Blackwell Music School, Pymble Ladies' College, David Blackwell Music School, Pymble, NSW 2073

'The Magic of the Stick' is a hands-on workshop on developing stick rebound, leverage, grip & motion. The techniques described in this workshop are a unique combination of the best of everything concerning hand control that Dave learned from Jim Piesse, Jim Chapin & Joe Morello. Learn how to harness and use to your advantage the natural rebound energies that are generated when you hit a pad, drum or cymbal with a stick by optimising your leverage point, grip, and hand movement. Grips and movements discussed include German Timpani Grip, French Timpani Grip, American 3/4 Grip and Marching Grip. Dave also presents Jim Chapin's idea of "No Droop", which serves to update elements of the Moeller Technique he traditionally taught for decades around the world.
