Hey Rev. D -
My Tension Free Concepts can absolutely help you. Once you understand and regularly practice the basic concepts that I demonstrate on the first DVD so they become ingrained into your muscle memory, you will find you will be able to play with more power, endurance, speed, and precision but with much less effort than before. When one explains the difference between drumming with and truly without tension, it sounds too good to be true but there is no comparision. Drumming Tension-Free literally takes about as much effort as a walk in the park!
Over more than three decades I have taught these techniques not only to those who have been in your situation, health-wise, but to those who have had painful injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome - but by following the basic core exercises they have been able to play drums again totally without pain!
If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
