My name is Alex and I am a Limitless Drummer.
I have studied drumming for over 20 years and specialize in spontaneous freeform creativity.
You could call this jamming or improvisation or flow state.
What it boils down to is the ability to create endless new music without ever needing to stop and think about technique, phrasing or your own physical ability to play an idea.
It is musical composition in real time, with no limit between what your mind thinks and what your body plays.
This is the realm of the virtuoso musician, players who seem capable of playing ANYTHING on their instrument.
How is this possible? And how can you reach this level of skill, where the instrument becomes an expression of who you are rather than an exercise in "performing" musical pieces and phrases and songs?
Believe me when I say that this experience of becoming limitless on your instrument is the true goal for every musician. You may have never witnessed it in person before, even if you've seen great musicians perform.
What I offer is the opportunity for us to jam together. Me playing drums and you playing your instrument, whatever it may be.
I will guide you through the creative process, teach you how to listen and respond in real-time to changes in rhythm, mood, timing and feel; teach you how to both lead and follow moment-to-moment in spontaneous musical arrangement and creation.
Ultimately, I can help you to become someone who is comfortable to sit down with other musicians and jam freely, without concern about playing the right things at the right time. You will learn to feel what other people are making and create music that compliments them, and in doing so you will become a musician that other musicians love to play with.
If this all sounds very unconventional, it is.
You will not learn this in most music schools. No exams can teach you this skill, it can only come from developing yourself and playing with the right people.
These classes are a NO-PRESSURE environment. Mistakes are welcome as they highlight what we need to improve in our playing. Jamming is a partnership where we support each other and create together - it is not a contest to see who is better.
It doesn't matter if you're a genius on your instrument or just starting out -- give this collaboration a try and see what there is to learn.
