Limb independence

Limb independence – there isn’t one single exercise that you can do that will unlock independence on all of your limbs. This is the first thing to understand and anyone offering to do this for you is selling snake oil.

The truth is, you don’t need to spend ages trying to get your left and right hands perfectly even (they won’t ever be!) – you just need to focus on your strengths and practice that present a slight challenge to your current level of coordination.

Here are some free lessons that I think will present a limb independence challenge for you:

Developing the ability to compose and learn new fills ideas is something that is crucial for any good drummer. It’s something that I love to help my students with and I cover extensively in my Progressive Drumming Masterclass.

To some degree, all of the lessons I teach present a limb independence challenge. Whether it’s wrapping your mind around a new ostinato, keeping your left leg counting on the pedal hat while playing a groove with the rest of your body, or constructing a new drum fill from a couple of rudiments – these patterns of movement are a mystery to our limbs until we’ve slowed them down and played them a few times.

I’d love to speak to you in more detail about this if you’re ready to pour jet fuel on your drumming abilities.
