Looking for a cadence? Looking for lots of cadences? Over the years, I have composed and released more than 62 original street beats and stadium grooves. For the most part, the music in the premium products was written for a predefined purpose, a real drumline that had to learn and perform it, or to target a particular skill level… on the other hand, the free compositions on this page are more experimental and self-indulgent, meant to push boundaries and prove to myself that I could do it.

Sometimes creativity is inspired by the constraints it has to operate within… and sometimes creativity is unleashed by unbridled freedom. From FatMattDrums! From Tapspace Publications! Beats for the Street : Fifteen cadences in three volumes or individually whose vocabulary is broadly accessible to lines with a wide range of skill levels, so you never have to compromise creativity for playability!

From Marching Monk! From Mtn-Land Performance Design!

I will not withhold permission; however it is useful for me to know what changes other people find appropriate. If you're nice, I may even let you have the Finale file or Music XML so you can more easily modify or arrange something. If you would like any of these pieces re-arranged or re-imagined for a different skill level or ensemble say, more or fewer bass drums, tri-toms instead of tenors, a less flam-heavy vocabulary, etc.

Emeritus is a slamming street-beat that adds low-humming tom drums to the typical battery instrumentation, inspired by the extra bit of punch that a lot of show-style drumlines bring to the table. Creative use of triplet feels and transitions to duple feels create suspense and release while maintaining a strong pulse to march to.

It has since been retired, so I want to share it here, since I have not written anything else quite like it. It is arranged for 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, and 4-drum bass lines. Here is a Virtual DrumLine recording of the 6-drum arrangement:. The X-Ray Climb is the result of playing around with MuseScore for a couple of evenings, just to try it out. MuseScore is a free musical notation program that has a free extension for drumline notation and playback.

There were only a few things that I gave up on trying to figure out how to do like adding my copyright notice, so I just did it in PowerPoint , and it was intuitive enough that I could write something new and original by just playing around with it. Just give it a listen; I'm sure you'll agree that it's the nastiest thing on this website.

I wanted to embellish some ideas from that piece as well as expand on the Latin feel with some heavy grooves to breathe new life into an old favourite. It includes a lot of beat phrases, and the whole idea behind it is kinda silly—hence the name—but I think it turned out pretty well. Execution should be very easy, apart from some scrape patterns in the quad part, and the groove should be very effective.

I wrote this as a tongue-in-cheek birthday present for John Antonelli, the drumline instructor at NC State. This is a "new" piece, but all the elements existed in an old Finale file pre that I recently dug up, where I had collected ideas that never made it into other pieces. The notes should all be very physically achievable, but there are some moments that will be very demanding of ensemble cohesion. Don't hurt yourself! I don't know who is prepared to march that slow, but if you are, these notes are for you!

The third movement is based on Annie's Theme by DJ Afrojack, and the fourth is based on a song by a band I played bass in while I was a teenager. It all adds up to a cadence Mud is a stadium groove based on the groove from Primus's My Name is Mud.

Tenors definitely have to do the most work here, but there should be a good payoff once all the parts fit together correctly. Did Pat 1 is the stock diddles exercise that the NC State drumline plays. It was the only "did pat", though, so it became a sort of joke that there was this elusive "Did Pat 2" out there that nobody could play.

Well, here it is There is no cymbal part, as I thought it stood on its own fairly well. Chug along! Dry Rub is a straightforward stadium groove inspired by the smooth flow of SNL rapper Blizzard Man, which was the motivation behind the quad part "Let's all cool out and get in the hot tub! The other beats are pretty generic, so I thought I'd do something funny with it.
