Meet your instructors:

Tim Froncek has been rightfully called one of the busiest drummers in West Michigan. Teacher, performer, director, lecturer, and judge are all roles that he plays in the world of jazz. He serves both as drummer and Musical Director for the Truth in Jazz Orchestra.

He has performed with such jazz greats as Woody Herman and The Thundering Herd, Bobby Shew, Bill Watrous, Randy Brecker, Phil Woods, Rufus Reid, Jon Faddis, Hal Galper, Clark Terry, John Patitucci, Bill Mays, John Clayton, Marcus Printup, Terry Gibbs, Wess Warmdaddy Anderson, David Fat Head Newman, Wycliffe Gordon, Brother Jack McDuff, Pearl Bailey, and Joe Williams – just to name a few.

An energetic performer loved by audiences, Tim is well known in the Midwest. But he also tours internationally with the Western Jazz Quartet, performing throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia. He is the Musical Director for Grand Rapids Jazz Orchestra as well as TIJO, both of which are considered to be premier big bands in western Michigan.

As a teacher, Tim directs the jazz program at the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. He is a sought after affiliate professor at Grand Valley State University, teaches on the jazz studies faculty at Western Michigan University and is the director of the jazz band at Muskegon Community College.

“I have always been interested in jazz music,” Tim says, “because of the beat, the groove. That’s what drew me to drums.” In comparing the performance of classical music to jazz, he comments that he enjoys the spontaneity of jazz performance. “In jazz,” he says, “you are trying to recreate the written music, but also create something new at the same time.”

Kevin DePree

After graduating in 2007, DePree toured Europe with the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp big band with director David Jenson. From that experience, DePree knew he had to make music part of his life forever. His love of music started with piano lessons when he was 7 years old. After about three years, his attention turned to drums and he got his first drum set when he was 10 years old. "It was a simple set - a $50 kid-sized set my Mom and Dad picked up at a street fair."

DePree is now working full time as a musician, educator, and music composer.  His educational programs (STEAM skills assemblies & music education workshops) are supported by the State of Michigan through several grant programs including the Michigan Touring Program.

Tools of the Jazz Drummer
Review some of the topics talked about in the Lecture 2 discussions.
What to Expect on an Audition (podcast)
Tim and Kevin chat about the Jazz Band audition process. If you have already taken an audition this may bring back some memories. If you have never auditioned for Jazz band, these are some important things to consider when preparing for one.
Swing Basics
Learn basic coordination, grooves, and song forms for playing Jazz. Play along audio is located in the lecture videos. Follow the Drumming Into Jazz" PDF packet for worksheet instructions.
Warm Ups
Tim and Kevin chat about the importance of warm ups. Warm ups develop your fluidity on the drums and help develop coordination of the drum set. Whenever you are working on a new warm up, start SLOW…. speed is not the goal. Getting comfortable with new patterns and coordination while being relaxed is the goal.
After you have completed watching this video, grab your sticks and get ready for your first set of drum set warm ups.
Jazz Warm Up 1
Download PDF: "Jazz Warm Up 1"
Follow the instructions on the downloadable worksheet.
Kevin demonstrates, "Jazz Warm Up 1". You may play along with the demo video or set a metronome at a tempo that is comfortable for you. Your goal is to keep increasing the speed of this warm up. The only rule is to stay relaxed.
Note: Sometimes drummers are so focused on their hands, they forget about warming up their feet. This is a basic but very useful foot pattern. You will need it for the rest of, "Drumming into Jazz".
Jazz Warm Up 2
Download PDF: "Jazz Warm Up 2" Follow the instructions on the downloadable worksheet. Kevin demonstrates, "Jazz Warm Up 2". You may play along with the demo video or set a metronome at a tempo that is comfortable for you. Your goal is to keep increasing the speed of this warm up. The only rule is to stay relaxed.
Jazz Warm Up 3
Download PDF: "Jazz Warm Up 3" Follow the instructions on the downloadable worksheet. Kevin demonstrates, "Jazz Warm Up 3".

Spang-A-Lang (medium swing beats)
Download PDF: "Spang-A-Lang" Follow the instructions on the downloadable worksheet. Tim demonstrates, “Spang-A-Lang”. You may play along with the demo video or set a metronome at a tempo that is comfortable for you. Your goal is to keep increasing the speed of these medium swing grooves. The only rule is to stay relaxed. Notes:
  1. When playing the ride cymbal, keep your thumb at 12 'o'clock. It helps create a bright open tone.
  2. Notice how Tim lets the stick rebound off the cymbal? That is an important part of your ride sound.
