My First Drum Teacher & Mentor Stanley Spector wrote the headline above more than 54 years ago. That controversial advice and truth has been lost to all but the most select few successful drummers… until now.
In 1958 in a studio loft in NYC a man who was about to change the way we drum was recording his first lessons to once and for all help drummers everywhere to be free from practicing themselves into constant state of conformity.
Stanley revolutionized the art of drum set education with many different techniques,however his most effective was taking just average drummers and turning them into superior musicians who would leave their mark in the world of drumming. Whether it be in the studio or touring the stages of the world. His teaching method included:
Visualization...Seeing the notation in your mind.
Improvisation…He gives the key to unlock it.
Improvement in time keeping…His systematic method.
Memory and recall code…Shorthand of the mind.
Problem solving skills…Performing with passive attention.
The ability to swing…The underlying rhythm you’ll learn.
Unfortunately we lost Stanley in 1987 and all of his training mysteriously disappeared. My name is John O. Reilly,and being a successful student,in fact making my living by utilizing Stanley’s techniques I decided drummers everywhere needed to have this information.
I remembered meeting Stanley’s Wife Astrid on my first lesson with him,and after a long search I finally found her.She graciously allowed me on to the family estate and access into a deep dark basement. And after months of searching for her and weeks of searching for “the lost tapes” on my last day on a whim I looked in a dusty box in the corner and found his original reel to reel tapes.
As I rented the old Akai reel to reel tape recorder and began going through them i was amazed to hear every single one of Stanley’s 164 lessons. I had struck gold. And being in the business I immediately took to digitally capturing these at the highest play back frame rate resolution possible, using only the most sophisticated studio tools available restoring them to their pristine original quality…And now they’re finally available. I believe so strongly in this that I would like to give you one of Stanley’s greatest lessons….From this lesson you will have discovered a new found love and skill for your drumming.
