In an intimate master-class setting, Antonio Sanchez displays his extraordinary musical skills in the context of challenging songs and incredible solo segments. Performing both on his smaller traditional jazz set, and the larger kit that he uses with the Pat Metheny Group, he presents musical concepts, exercises, and suggestions for developing musicianship that apply to serious drum students of all levels. Playing selections from the Pat Metheny Group, along with compositions by Chick Corea and Antonio himself, Sanchez covers technical, musical, and philosophical points that apply to drummers of all styles. topics include: Practicing, hand technique, motivic development, left-foot clavé, playing stylistically, developing independence, finding your own voice, soloing ideas, odd-meter clavé, recording with Pat Metheny, professionalism, and the importance of having the right attitude. Antonio takes these advanced concepts and clearly explains his personal approach to each.
