Home of Drums at Musikmesse 2020

The international drumming scene has a new meeting place: the ‘Home of Drums’ will be celebrating its launch at the Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre on Musikmesse’s public open days (3 and 4 April 2020). The event combines product demonstrations by top brands, knowledge transfer and performances by international artists. The presence of the first artists to sign up has already been confirmed. They will be there to perform live on some of the drum sets and to pass on their expertise to the drumming community at large – both at the show and on the accompanying online platform, www.homeofdrums.com.

Developing Melodic Language on the Drums

The purpose of this book, by Wayne Salzmann, is to give you the necessary tools to develop an authentic musical language on the drum set based on melodic content. The exercises and concepts provided here are designed to inspire creativity and challenge you to reach new levels of awareness and musical ability. Focusing on the melodic themes and phrases keeps the exercises rooted in a musical context rather than focusing only on independence or technical exercises. Using themes and melodies to develop strategies for comping and soloing helps to connect to the phrasing, form, and foundation of the music.

The Drummer’s Fake Book

MILWAUKEE-For years, Hal Leonard has produced fake books for all musicians: jazz instrumentalists, pianists, guitarists, and even ukulele players. But what about the most important musician of all: DRUMMERS? Hal Leonard is proud to publish its first-ever The Drummer’s Fake Book. Destined to become the drummer’s best friend, it provides a virtual mental warehouse of songs that drummers need to know.


Da sempre la AMD communication è sinonimo di supporto alla musica e all’arte in generale attraverso le sue riviste www.planet-drum.com, www.guitar-nbass.com e www.areanote.it. Si è sempre distinta nel dare voce a musicisti emergenti e a band interessanti, da Elio Rivagli con le sue prime apparizioni con importanti artisti su palchi nazionali e non solo ai Thegiornalisti divenuti oramai una realtà; da Vince Pastano, chitarrista stabile di Vasco Rossi a Leo Di Angilla che con le sue percussioni movimenta i ritmi di Jovanotti.
Oggi una nuova realtà ha catturato la nostra attenzione, un progetto culturale che sposa le idee della stessa AMD communication e che prende come riferimento l’arte a 360 gradi, un’associazione che ha come obiettivo la diffusione e l’insegnamento come unica via di uscita per non perdere la memoria storica di un popolo come il nostro che ha sempre fatto dell’arte un vanto da esportare: AREA FUORI TEMA
