Drum Clinic HD

Drum Clinic HD is the first real clinic by a pro drummer, purposefully built for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch!

Hans Eijkenaar is a well known and much sought after session drummer in the Netherlands with a successful career both in Holland and abroad. His list of tours and recorded albums is huge and he is considered to be a specialist studio drummer. He is well known for being a versatile, creative and explosive drummer with a personal style — best known for his pop and rock career — but with a history in jazz and fusion.

As a conservatory teacher (Codarts, Rotterdam), Eijkenaar has developed a powerful and transparent method for drummers of any style and of multiple levels. The app goes the extra mile in terms of recording a fully featured, HD audio and video clinic app with over 50 clips, presentation videos, instruction videos and play alongs. Eijkenaar recorded a separate chapter with drum solos — all filmed with 6 XD HD cams to capture for once and for all every angle you wanna see as a drummer. Everything recorded in one of the finest recording studios around, Soundvisionstudios, Arnhem, the Netherlands.

Hans Eijkenaar unleashes all of his knowledge and has developed some very special views on studying drums, studying rudiments in a unique independence system, playing in all types of meter, improvising and playing fills in a creative, rather than a standard way. He also is known for having a distinguished brushes technique for pop and rock which he demonstrates in several clips in a separate brushes chapter.

So, if you want to learn more about rudiments, drums, grooves, fills, improvisation, brushes — this is simply a must have!

Drum Clinic HD needs no further internet connection after downloading as all the videos are to be found within the app itself, enabling you to watch, listen and study anywhere you like.

Extra features: Voiceovers with clear explanations, written music where needed, 'making of' and trailer movies, play along tracks (do it yourself) and a biography with links.
