30 Days to Better Shime

Kris Bergstrom of On Ensemble has released version two of 30 Days to Better Shime. I highly recommend this self-training program for any stick drummer, especially taiko and Chinese drummers.

On Ensemble offers the workbook and audio files for free on their website. You can also order the comprehensive guide and CD for $30. That's only $1/day to become the best small-drum player in the world.
Dedicated to intercultural collaboration, Byron Au Yong composes songs of dislocation, music for a changing world. He teaches in Performing Arts & Social Justice at the University of San Francisco.
