Jump rope drummer: progressive jump rope beats
The jump rope has been a true savior in my life, helping me come back from injuries and other set-backs. I have used it to keep sharp and rhythmically in tune. The jump rope is a highly effective and optimistic exercise. I created my own jump rope music to train with and it's called "Progressive Jump Rope". Check it out!
The matt kane school of drumming
I have chosen to pass on my insights and experience in music through the Matt Kane School of Drumming. We have several students now studying music in universities, out in the field making records and touring. Our motto is: "With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility."
"I consider myself very fortunate to have worked side by side with Matt Kane in several teaching and playing situations. Matt has many qualities that make him a powerhouse music teacher and drum instructor. He is a professional jazz drummer of the highest order and his passion for the music inspires his students to be passionate about it as well. I continue to admire how Matt can teach musicality and style to a variety of ensembles, as well as educate the groups on the history and the spirit of music. He is a great role model for his students, one that exemplifies focus, love of the process and respect for the elders of this music." -Julius Tolentino Jazz Director, Newark Academy and Jazz House Kids
