LEARN TO READ RHYTHMS. . . BETTER!

BY PAT PETRILLO

DVD(2)/E-BOOK/MP3s LEVEL: ALL $29.95

The new multimedia offering by Drummers Collective instructor Pat Petrillo is the next best thing to an actual live lesson. An "interactive reading boot camp that comes with a teacher," the two-DVD set allows students to play along with charts of 16th-note combinations, dotted rhythms, odd times, and everything in between, with the aid of a click track and digital pointer. (Think of a bouncing ball following the lyrics to a song.) Petrillo's "sound picture" method connects the way rhythms look with the way they sound, and the exercises feature Pat speaking along with the pointer, which is a great help. The package also includes MP3s and a hundred-page e-book. (Alfred) Ilya Stemkovsky
