Virgil Donati Power Drumming
This instructional video opens with a drum solo that is certain to catch your interest and inspire your motivation for the instruction that follows. You can expect to work with drills that develop power/strength, endurance, speed, hand/foot coordination (bass pedals), accuracy and timing (and in that order of priority perhaps). Throughout the video, the metronome click is clearly audible and can be advantageous for those wanting to work on speed and timing. Left and right hand leads are not neglected as many exercises are repeated to give them their due. There is also some crescendo/decrescendo exercises to boot, played in unison and L+R hands separately. There is also the assumption that you can/will play along at his pace (up to a point!). A Case in point is where he plays double time with the hands moving double to the feet. By the end of that work-out Virgil states, "your 'doubles' should be feeling nice and warm by now." (Oh, most definitely so!) And there are moments where he appears to be speeding over the drums with electromagnetic motion to show the achievements of his own power and speed. There is also some impressive stick juggling and twirling that is really off-the-hook!Website www.drumnet.ru presents to your attention the video school Virgil Donati Power Drumming.
