AD Coordination, a new iPhone/iPad App

For Drum Set Practice



Take Alan's legendary Drum Set Lessons with you wherever you go. Using just 8 pages of Ted Reed's Syncopation book, Alan designed Drum Set Practice Methods to help develop and improve your sight reading skill as well as coordination across all four limbs around a Drum set.

AD Coordination shows 30 different ways to interpret the Syncopation book and demonstrates them in audio recordings. After going through the first few Methods, you'll find yourself an quite accomplished drummer.

By just sight-reading a simple Line on the book, you are actually projecting a very musical and phenomenal Drum Solo.

These lessons virtually guide you through the history of drumming over the last 100 years including styles developed by drummers' drummers such as Sid Catlett, Papa Jo Jones, Kenny Clarke, Elvin Jones and Max Roach.

The Methods, although not easy to follow, absolutely work, and will stay with you for years to come, which has been proven by hundreds of Alan's ex-student drummers.

A “Must Have” for any serious drummer.
