To make matters worse, any knowledge of traditional or classical music theory a drummer may have does little to explain the swing and other unique rhythms inherent in the music.

The use of rhythm syllables is a time tested educational tool and has been proven to accelerate students' rhythmic understanding. Download The Bare Bones and start your "reading journey" today!
