ODYSSEY - "a long and eventual journey or experience"
This is a word that perfectly describes the process of learning to play the drums. "The Drummer's Odyssey" is one of AJ's drum books, which contains a system that helps drummers achieve greater creative ideas, technical proficiency and musical phrasing. This is what is taught and delivered throughout "The Drummer's Odyssey Masterclass", with plenty of time for questions and impromptu topics/discussions.
