Chordal Drumming is an innovative and exciting new method that takes drum set coordination to the next level. The term "chordal" refers to the simultaneous playing of sound, an increasingly... More > prevalent approach in modern drumming and a counterpart to the traditionally predominating linear styles.
The Chordal Drumming system develops the simultaneous dynamic coordination and control of all four limbs, advancing hand-foot integration and strengthening the hi-hat foot as an equal voice.

Chordal Drumming provides a foundation for modern drumming styles. It offers a huge asset to all drummers wanting to take their playing beyond the standard skill set and into the 21st century. www.maxoepen.com< Less
