In this book you’ll expand your chord chart reading ability, build a rhythmic vocabulary of sixteenth note syncopations, learn integrative etudes, develop superior movement mechanics, work on precise durations, use major and minor scales with correct fingerings and fun grooves, and expand on recognizing chord types and rhythms by ear.




•Even if you’re a professional percussionist, start here. This book will introduce a new way of conceptualizing rhythm and introduce you to The Rhythm Compass™.

There are so many incredible concepts unveiled in this system and one of the biggest is the Anatomy of a Groove. Learning this concept and others in this book will assure that you can hear and perform any groove rapidly. More importantly, the way you play – your FEEL – will change dramatically.



The Level 4 Workbook dives deeply into 6/8 and sixteenth note triplet syncopations which are then rotated (displaced), reflected, and mixed with other syncopations. Binary thinking/feeling, rhythmic octaves, and measure level vs individual beat level shapes are addressed. Also, covered in this book is beginning to master odd time signatures using new and previous principles addressed in this series.


The mystery of polyrhythms and their hemiolas is unveiled in this book. A new definition of hemiola is necessary to cover this vast aspect of rhythm. You’ll learn why a 4:3 polyrhythm is different than 3:4 and how to subdivide and syncopate these rhythms to create a mastery over them.
