The traditional approach to drumming and teaching drums focuses entirely in the external aspects,i.e. hands technique, coordination, independence.

In the next series of articles I will explain what the INTERNAL DRUMMING  method of practice is, what it can do for you, how it does it and how to practice it in order to reap the greatest benefits.
