I have a great program in RI called "Inner City Rhythm" drummers & I teach from 9 years old to 18 in the providence RI school system & schedule "live" events we perform at & form our "drum circle" events made up of cultures around the world and refugees that come to America..

We teach basic rudiments and create different rhythms and marching beats so the kids learn how to play together. The video is 30 students some no English and this was our t week - 14 hour summer camp

About Lee M.

My name is Lee Mangano drummer for band NRG with song "Instruments Of Destruction" on the original 1986 animated Transformers The Movie that featured Orson Welles, Leonard Nemoy, Judd Nelson etc,,,and on the soundtrack Vince DeCola, Stan Bush , Weird Al Yankavich and still today TF live action series is in process of filming TF6. It was a great opportunity offered to NRG & for it to "live" on for over 35 yards is a great honor for all of us to still be a part of with over 12 million DvDs, 1 million records & we have over 3 million YouTube hits

I also self produced a 4 disc instruction book catalog called "DRUM SCHOOL" subtitled "Taking It To The Next Level" that have segments from 6 different style world class drummers with a combined 50 million credits on records, DVDs and soundtracks teaching their experiences and style in 3 separate levels, even our advanced student are to be tested at beginner & intermediate level to pass the course.

This should make all beginners feel a bit more confident, knowing some drum rhythms & coordination and hand patterns are tough at slow meter to keep in time than the fast ... so do "not" get frustrated & know it will click & once it clicks in it will never go away ...

Specialties : rudiments, coordination, control & independence
Rudiments Applying Rudiments to the drum kit in beats, rhythms, fills with single & double bass drum patterns using 1/4, 1/8th & 1/16th notes on feet
