CHICKEN IN A BISCUIT
I’ve been fortunate to have been a professional musician for over 30 years. Yes, this has been my full time career for this long. My background allows me to relate to a variety of different students and their origins on the drums. I started without lessons, just listening to and working out what drummers were playing on my favourite records.
My origin as a professional musician was playing in a full time professional covers band. This was a great learning platform for me. We had a huge repertoire of songs and I would constantly have to learn new songs every week as the latest hits would come out. I learn’t everything by ear so this taught me a great deal about hearing and understanding what the drummer does in a song and how song writing structures work. I began to realise what the better drummers were doing and how they shaped their drum parts to support the song. I was very meticulous in learning the material and would sit down with headphones, going over each bar, so that I had every single hi hat opening, ride bell and other parts so I could be as close to the original drum part as possible.
As I progressed with my learning, I started looking at doing formal studies to advance my musical skills further. I started to audition at conservatories and universities. Unfortunately my music theory skills were well down in comparison to my drumming skills so I was unsuccessful in my first attempts. I then started to get music theory lessons and after 3 years of auditioning, I was accepted to do my Bachelor of Music. I’ve since gone on to become a Doctor of Music so I have the formal qualifications as well as my on the road experiences to relate to both sides of the spectrum. I’ve also been a Conservatorium Lecturer and have written course curriculums for subjects so have the skills and know how to structure a course.
As well as that, I’ve travelled around the world doing concerts and also for my sponsors doing Hundreds of Clinics, Masterclasses and Percussion Festivals over the past 25+ years. I’ve also done countless hours of private tuition for a wide range of students doing everything from playing in local bands to going to university to winning national drum competitions.
I’ll be totally up front with you.
YES, there’s a significant amount of things I’m going to ask you to learn inside my CHICKEN IN A BISCUIT Course.
YES, it’ll probably get a little challenging at times.
YES, you’ll have moments when you might curse my name out loud and scare your neighbours or pets (I forgive you in advance).
But here’s the thing…
As long as you’re willing to invest a few hours every week, you can absolutely do this. You’ve probably recognized by now that there’s NOTHING to be achieved in this world without a significant amount of effort.
If you’re reading this, I’m sure you actually want to put in the effort. You just want to make absolutely sure that every amount of effort you invest in learning the course will move you closer to the end result of being a better drummer.
No! You will need drum sticks and a drum pad (or you can play on the top of a table or anything really) and a basic drumset. A metronome is highly recommended and there are many free apps that are available. You will also need an internet connection to stream the lessons.
It depends. Some of my best students came into my course just beginning their drumming journey.
I’ve also had longtime “veterans” use my course to FINALLY create an understanding and solid foundation of the paradiddle inversions. Consistency and perseverance are really the only common denominators between all my successful students.
The lessons inside CHICKEN IN A BISCUIT will make NO assumptions of your current skill level and will map out the entire A-Z process of playing the inversions.
Whether you’re somewhat new to the world of paradiddles or it's been at this a while, the difference-maker will ALWAYS be your willingness to stay the course and trust the process to gain the skills needed to move you forward with confidence.
