Robinson-Hand Drumming: Exercises for Unifying Technique (VHS) - Product Information

In this video, N. Scott Robinson presents his concept of Unifying Technique for Hand Drummer and demonstrates how to apply this idea to clay pot drums made by the Wright Hand Drum Co. This video is eighty minutes long and is divided into four sections:

Part I - Sounds, Strokes & Rhythm
Part II - India and Extended Technique
Part III - Rhythms of Brazil, The Caribbean, Cuba and West Africa
Part IV - Performance by world music group Cushetunk

Material is presented for beginners and demonstrates how to develop technique for playing and a concept of rhythm including a clear method of counting. Intermediate players will learn how to adapt techniques from snare drum and drumset studies as well as concepts of rhythm and hand technique from India. Advanced players are presented with the application of rhythms derived from Latin America and Africa combined with the idea of hand independence and ambidexterity. This material is divided into thirty-five exercises clearly demonstrated and explained and makes up the first hour of the tape. The closing twenty minutes features a quartet of musicians performing four pieces that feature a variety of hand percussion not easily found elsewhere. Instruments include all-clay drums such as ubang, ghatam, doumbek, claypan (clay frame drum), Remo riq, mbira and more.

Supplemental manual included.
