1. Why Practice? •No such thing as natural talent •Musical Nirvana •Athletes of the small muscle groups •Practice so that it is impossible NOT to do something •The 10,000 hour rule (Malcom Gladwell) 2. Get Organized (part 1) •Find a good teacher/mentor •Keep a journal •Use a metronome •Review your goals •Pursue your goal with passion 3. Warmup is not practice •Improvised warmup (singles, doubles, Triples, Moeller stroke, Flam paradiddles) •Transition to warmup on drumset 4. Get organized (part 2) •Determine your path •Learn to speak like the masters (just as we learn to speak english) Tony Williams Groove Technique Creativity •Budget your time •Create your own syllabus and start a library Example goals: Afro-Cuban rhythms Brazilian Rhythms Jazz coordination Soloing over tunes Soloing over ostinatos
