Patterns – Breaks – Solos – Concepts

Roman Schmon, born on the 22nd of June 1974, started on a musical path taking piano lessons as a child. When he was still in primary school, he started taking drum lessons and since then has played for various projects and bands. As a teenager he decided to make his hobby into his career and graduated from the American Institute of Music (AIM) in Vienna where he studied drums. In 1996 he began a full-time vocational study programme at the Music Academy St Gallen (Jazz School St Gallen) and graduated in 2000. During and after his musical and teacher’s training, he taught at various music schools and travelled internationally with many bands (the Daniel Ziegler Jazz Trio, among others). In addition, he has also played for musicals (e.g. ‘Little Shop of Horrors’) and for various CD productions.

‘Drum Play for advanced players’ is a direct continuation of his first book, ‘Easy Drum Play’ (AMA No. 610384). This course for modern drum playing can be used for self-study or with a teacher. In 19 chapters, the topics from the first volume are revived and developed further: you will find countless riffs about topics like 2-bar rhythms, HiHat accents, tom beats, irregular time signatures, swing patterns and beat shifting. Yet even topics like how the player can integrate additional percussion instruments have not been left out. What is special about this book is that the exercises are not only transcribed in a fixed way. Rather, the player is presented time and again with concepts with various possible uses which they can use to compile independent grooves. The independence between hands and feet and coordination are trained through these exercises and the player is prepared for implementing their own ideas in the studio, arranging their own percussion parts and playing different parts at the same time without needing lots of practice. Chapters in which the patterns are notated for 2 to 4 parts can also be used in a group lessons.

The CD contains around 60 exercises with excellent sound quality so that the player gets an idea of how the patterns should sound when played perfectly. With few long explanations, this book is a true treasure trove of numerous exercises, rock riffs and fill-ins with which the drummer can develop a new and creative repertoire.
