The DrumFill app helps to get ideas for fill-ins while playing drums, expand them and bring them to perfection. Using the built-in metronome you can learn to control and improve your timing from 40 to 220 bpm. And if nothing at all comes to your mind on the drumset, a random fill generator will create new fills for you.

Percussion Ensemble

Ensemble music has continued to gain in importance, one reason being the broadened scope of studies at schools and music schools. This development can be observed in all departments. The wide range of Latin-Percussion instruments create the perfect conditions for musical interaction. The different sounds and modes of playing and the variations in the instrumentation offer a nearly infinite number of ways, with which musical interaction can occur.

My own, modern compositions for Percussion Ensemble can be found in my Shop

FINALE Add-ons

“The fact that to this day no standardized method for the notation of drums and percussion has been established can indeed be characterized as a music-historical and theoretical phenomenon. The ever-present uncertainty, even among professional musicians, composers and arrangers as to the question of notation for drum and percussion and its practical implementation is a logical consequence of this phenomenon.

With scoreGroove, a complete library of rhythm notation templates has emerged. For direct use in Finale as well as with the pedagogical demands for / in teaching and learning materials, this collection is an aid in and the answer to finding the “right” notation for drum and percussion. The notation method used in scoreGroove is a result of my many years of teaching and workshop experience as well as my work as the author of magazine articles and books on this subject.
