The World Is My Drum (Vol. 1) is an instructional tap video that combines both education and entertainment. Join Mike Wittmers as he teaches you how to transpose drum notation into footwork with the help of a drum kit played at the same time by none other than...himself! From there, Mike is joined by Jason Rodgers, Melinda Sullivan and Sarah Reich-three amazing tappers-and teaches two tap combinations: one combo in 4/4 time and the other in 6/8. Finally, Jason, Melinda, and Sarah join Mike as he not only teaches how to implement improv into your classes, but hosts an interactive jam session with you, the viewer! This DVD also contains outtakes, interviews and extras of both the rehearsal and filming process, a first for instructional dance videos. With plenty of material for beginning and advanced tappers alike, The World Is My Drum Volume 1 is sure to not only help you become a better tapper, but a better musician as well!
