Multimedia Learning Tools

Observing a pro is one of the best ways to learn. Educator Jeff Prosperie, a champion snare drummer, performs each solo in the accompanying DVD so that students may study and play along with the performer. The result is an exceptional visual and audio tool that provides insights and solutions for each composition's technical requirements. Students may switch to any of three camera angles at any point during a solo to examine stroke heights, hand positions and visual techniques.

The MP3's features eight audio tracks to accompany and enhance the performing experience of the Aptitude compositions. Each has been recorded at three tempos: two with a metronome click at a slow tempo, the third at performance tempo. At slower tempos, the student may remove the click by panning the music to one channel. Each solo stands on its own, but MP3 accompaniments offer multi-dimensional, educational musical experiences.
