NYC drummer Ari Hoenig’s new book focuses on coordination systems and different melodic variations to expand your independence and overall musicality. The material isn’t a breeze—even the flam warm-ups require facility and concentration—and Hoenig pays special consideration to the placement and emphasis of the second note of the triplet. The melody lines can be played on different parts of the kit, which means you can practice the exercises with endless variations. But by the time you arrive at “Play the melody on the snare, while alternating quarter-note triplets between the bass drum and hi-hat,” you’ll know your work is cut out for you. Much-needed example MP3s are downloadable at www.arihoenig.com. (Alfred) Ilya Stemkovsky
