WHY SHOULD YOU LEARN THE HEEL TOE DRUM TECHNIQUE?

Over the past 20 years or so kick drum techniques have been quickly evolving to catch up with the progression that has been going on with the hands. This started with the introduction of the second kick drum in rock music in the 1960's but has fast progressed to where we are today. Today many forms of kick drum techniques are available but in this course we are going to focus on the heel toe drum technique.

The heel toe technique combines the benefits of both the heel down and heel up technique to create a seamless double motion on the pedal. With the heel toe technique you will gain:

  • New enhanced speeds you couldn't previously reach

  • Faster double stokes for single kick players
