Flexible Time Book

The Flexible Time Book contains 148 audio files (midi) and 97 video files that correspond to every music score in the book. The scores are divided into 3 kinds (tables, examples, exercises). On the top left of each score , there is the word “audio”or “audio/video” and the number of the corresponding file.

In addition to that, the book includes 8 training audio files (midi), with metronome and a melodic rhythm subdivision, to help us practice in each and every rhythm subdivision seperately, as each of them has a duration of five minutes.(the training audio files will be most useful from chapter 4).

FLEXIBLE TIME – an advanced guide for drums is intended to be a guide to the hand of a drummer of all kinds of music as well as of any musician interested to deepen his knowledge in rhythm.One of the key features of Flexible Time are the multifunctional exercises through which the reader can study several topics, thus reducing study time and also allowing the reader to focus on topics of his particular interest.
