“I used to compete on marching drums when I was younger for solo competitions and group competitions with my school,” Atchley says. “I have a lot of great memories from drum line, but I also have a lot of rudiment chops from drum line.”
“Being a drummer in a marching band taught me about precision drumming and all the different rudiments for drums too,” Atchley says. “All of these rudiments and drumming techniques can be applied to the drum set as well.”
“In fact,” Atchley says, “I often teach drum rudiments as a way to maneuver around fills much easier than playing everything with single strokes.”
