The author offers suggestions for how to work with drummers on transitions. He shares triplet-accent patterns he has designed, and recommends having students practice them in four-bar phrases. He explains that his motto "Imitate, Orchestrate, and Create," reflects the learning process of copying and imitating, then moving around the drum kit to discover different sonic possibilities, and finally turning patterns inside out and backwards to create unique ideas based on original material.
