Jack Mouse


Book/Online Instructional Video


Authored by well-known jazz drummer, clinician and jazz educator Jack Mouse, this book provides a systematic method of developing “complex independence” – the ability to execute complex rhythmic counterpoint on the drum set with maximum usage of all four appendages.

This system of exercises enables the player to select any two or more rhythmic patterns and juxtapose them, using all four limbs in literally hundreds of combinations. Practicing the exercises will improve 4-way coordination, enhance improvisation skills, improve vertical reading proficiency, and ultimately, facilitate the development of a personal playing style.

Included is an online instructional video (accessed via link/QR code) which includes discussions and demonstrations of the exercises as well as key aspects of core drum set technique.
