Benny Greb has created something unique in the way of teaching "rudiments". In fact, his method is so unique some may even argue that he's not teaching "rudiments", but of course he is. But he teaches them in a style that is clearly oriented toward language which the title of this product promises. In fact, is it true that he doesn't teach "rudiments" in their standard form, but as he points out, all of the elements that he teaches can be used to build whatever "rudiment" you can dream up. He just breaks it down into a more fundamental alphabet of beats based on the various ways that beats can be grouped.
Perhaps before I go further I should explain a little bit about myself. I'm only just starting to learn to play a drum set, rather late in life. I've already purchased quite a few of Tommy Igoe's videos on Groove Essentials and "Great Hands for a lifetime" which I highly recommend for raw beginners. Tommy does indeed teach the standard rudiment forms in great detail. I was looking for something that might take it to the next level, like showing how to apply the rudiments to grooves. I can't really say that Benny Greb's video does that exactly, but he does give a completely different method of looking at timing and working with basic beats.
I would say that Greb's Language of Drummer is really tailored for drummers who have already learned the rudiments and basically want to sharpen their timing skills and add vocabulary to their basic rudiments. Because like Greb points out, when you look at basic beats as an alphabet there is no rudiment you won't be able to play. So it's more versatile in that sense. He prepares you for more artistic creativity in the long haul.
He goes through the alphabet many times using many different styles and tempos. If you actually follow along by the time you've gone through all these exercises you will definitely know your musical 'beat alphabet'. He also teaches it leading with the right hand, then the left hand, and even on the bass drum and with the left foot on the hi-hat. So if you master everything he actually teaches you will have gained a lot of limb independence to be sure. And that's just on the first DVD disc.
On the second DVD he takes you further into the drum set creating entire words and phrases using odd and compound meters. If you learn all that you'll be a pro as far as I'm concerned.
Finally, he speaks to musical artistry and goes into some detail about how to listen to music, and what to listen for specifically, and how to tune into various parts of a musical composition. I really enjoyed that part because a large part of why I bought a drum set in the first place is to improve my rhythmic musicality so I found the latter part of the second DVD to be quite enlightening, and I'm looking forward to applying some of the techniques he teaches to my own musical compositions. Not just on the drums, but for all the instruments I play and write for.
There are some weird scenes on his video. I don't think I'll be playing the drums using plastic bottles, or using an egg whisk as a drum stick. He was getting a little too 'creative' for my tastes in places. I understand his intention but I think those spots would have been better filled by just showing some examples of using things like woodblocks, sambago bells, cowbells, or other drum accessories. In fact, I wish he had included woodblocks since I have a pair on my drum set. I guess the fact that he played on a log in the first DVD will have to suffice as a 'woodblock'.
Summary in short:
If you're a raw beginner looking for detailed instructions I'd recommend Tommy Igoe's "Groove Essentials" and "Great Hands for a Lifetime". But if you're already playing and you're looking to express more artistic creativity and refine your timing, then Greb's "The Language of Drumming" might just be the ticket.
However, you really do need to know the basics pretty well. Reading music is not necessary, but would be very helpful.
WHO THIS DVD IS FOR:
Drummers who are stuck! You don't know how to make your drumming better and are stuck on an intermediate level. This DVD opens up an endless number of complex rhythms in a way that's easy to understand, but at times, hard to apply.
Beautiful, funny, smart, and very helpful.
