Percussion Play Along videos
to practice your technics, rhythms and skills.
I play different Brazilian and Cuban percussion grooves and instruments for you to practice with. When you learn a rhythm on Youtube or with a teacher, you can improve your rhythm and technique with Percussion Play Along videos. The duration of the videos is five minutes, so you can practice with a complete rhythm section and improve your playing.
You can also download the notations of the rhythms as a PDF.
Of course in this level you get all the Tutorial videos.


Hier erwarten euch exklusive fünfminütige Mitspielvideos, mit denen ihr eure Technik, Rhythmusgefühl und Spielfähigkeiten trainieren könnt.
Ich nehme verschiedene brasilianische und kubanische Grooves in unterschiedlicher Instrumentenbesetzung auf. Ihr könnt dann das Video auswählen, bei dem euer eigenes Instrument „fehlt" und einfach selbst dazu spielen! So spielt ihr also in einer kompletten Bandbesetzung und könnt direkt 5 Minuten am Stück euer eigenes Instrument üben.
Auch hier gibt es alle Rhythmen als Notation zum Download (PDF).
