New Jazz Drum Instructional Book
“Finally there is an instruction manual to help students practice their drum skills in jazz that makes sense! Written by one of the most respected names in percussion education, this publication should be in the hands of every serious student who wants to excel in jazz technique. There are 58 pages of exercises that will lead each student through a progression of 4/4, 3/4 and 5/4 playing skills.”
– Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser
“Kerry is not only a creative expert at his music ability, he is committed to teaching what he has learned. A man is as good as his word, and Kerry puts that , in his love for the components of the music he composes. His book available on Amazon, is a must for all jazz drumming students. I actually do more then recommend Kerry’s instructional manual, “Every Day Workout for the Jazz Drummer”. I sell it on my amazon music mall. Kerry is a leader in drum art, that could fade out in the industry, if it wasn’t for committed artist like himself, to spread his knowledge and passion.”
