Steve Smith's Pathways of Motion Book/DVD Package Release Party
Steve Smith's Pathways of Motion Book/DVD Package Release Party
Pathways of Motions is based around Steve’s current use and analysis of four versions of the Matched Grip drumset technique. Video, text, and notation come together in this package to clearly explain and demonstrate four distinct grips that Steve has identified and developed in his own playing. Going beyond hand technique, the book includes dozens of challenging and fun rudimental phrases that are used to apply the grips, but that also build phrasing ideas, vocabulary, and chops.

During this exclusive event Steve will demonstrate the techniques found in the Pathways of Motion Book/DVD and discuss the genesis of this new methodology. He will also conduct a Q&A session. Copies of Pathways of Motion will be available for purchase and Steve will sign copies and greet guests. Door prizes will be given out during the show as well.

Over the past 35 years Steve has toured and recorded with some of the biggest names in jazz and rock - appearing on recordings that have sold over 100 million copies worldwide - including Journey, Bryan Adams, Mariah Carey, Andrea Bocelli, Zucchero and Jean-Luc Ponty. In 2013 Steve co-authored the Hudson Music book The Roots Of Rock Drumming, a behind-the-scenes look at the origins of rock drumming (1949-’65). In 2014, Modern Drummer named Steve as one of the “Top 50 Drummers of All Time!” Steve has many educational drum lessons available on the Drum Guru app. Additionally, Steve regularly conducts educational clinics worldwide, is an instructor at the annual Drum Fantasy Camp and has released a collection of his art called Fabric of Rhythm. In April Steve will once again be in the drum chair for Journey as they embark on a 5 month tour across America!
