Drum Solo Improvisation
Iana Komarnytska and Pedro Bonatto
Scared of drum solo improvisations? I guarantee your approach will change after this intensive.
Master your drum solo improvisation!
In this program we will:
- work on your mindset and fear of improvisation,
- breakdown the structure of a drum solo, and take a detailed look at each part,
- have lots of practice, theory and assignments!
Difficulty: All levels.
Suggested duration: 6 weeks.
If you follow our suggested duration of six weeks, get ready to invest about an hour per week in your training. But remember, you can always go through this intensive at your own pace. Six weeks is just a suggested structure.
Each week you’ll receive a 20-min technique drill focusing on a specific aspect of drum solo improv, several additional lectures, and weekly improvisation assignments from me and drummer Pedro Bonatto.
WEEK 1: Mindset & Listening to the Music
WEEK 2: The ‘Rule of 4’ & Variations
WEEK 3: Intro & Finale
WEEK 4: Interpreting Tremolos
WEEK 5: Interaction With a Drummer
WEEK 6: Putting All Together
Additionally, you will feel as if you are travelling to a dance retreat with us, but online! All technique drills in this intensive were shot in Cappadocia (Turkey), an ancient district in East-Central Anatolia, known for its distinctive “fairy chimneys,” tall, cone-shaped rock formations, and mysterious underground cities! We’ll be dancing inside ancient caves, among mountains, at a real Ottoman mansion, and with hot air balloons flying around us.
