Johnson, J.-Level System, The - Product Information

The Level System by Jeff Johnson is a study of the accenting method as taught by George Lawrence Stone and Joe Morello. The Level System is unlike most other methods because the hands always prepare for the upcoming note one stroke in advance by utilizing full strokes, down strokes, upstrokes, and tap strokes. This allows the drummer to perform within an extreme dynamic range while remaining free of tension. The book is easy to understand through the use of in-depth explanations, musical examples, graphics, and photos. More that just a method book, this book will change the way you play!

A great book for students and teachers alike!!

Comments:

For those who had the chance to study with Joe Morello, he was an extraordinary teacher and one of the great drum teachers of the twentieth century. Having studied with George Lawrence Stone, Joe further developed Stone's ideas into his Master Studies Volumes I and II. Stones Accents and Rebounds is dedicated to Joe whose idea to add accents to Stick Control was the inspiration for the book. In his book, The Level System, Jeff Johnson outlines the Stone/Morello technique in a clear and thoughtful manner. The Level System categorizes the four strokes that Joe Morello taught and demonstrates how to apply this technique to create dynamic changes and accents Jeff's careful outlining of the proper execution of rudiments is one of the added benefits of his book, as also his application of the technique to drum set grooves. The Level System is a great book for learning Joe Morello's technique, and also a great tool for teachers. It acts as a great companion to Joe's Master Studies series or to the study of rudimental snare drumming. I am glad to see that Jeff has shared his lessons with Joe Morello in this outstanding book.
