Los Angeles, CA—August 15, 2012 - Alfred Music Publishing, home to the world’s largest percussion print music catalog, releases John Toomey's Footwork: Developing 6-Way Independence, an instructional DVD that introduces drummers to a unique playing method on drumset.

John Toomey's Footwork was developed to show drummers of  any level how to play separate rhythms on each foot simultaneously.  Concepts are presented in entertaining and practical examples across 90  minutes of instruction all geared to strip away physical and mental limitations.
The instructional compilation features: Two prepared solos; detailed  instruction on footwork, independence, and how to obtain a higher level  of dexterity; rudimentary “builder” exercises based on John's very own  foot technique; in-studio play-alongs that showcase the application of layered patterns with the feet; improvised drum  solos, and much more.

Bonus features include an unedited interview with Johnny Rabb and John  Toomey, as well as concert footage of John performing and soloing.
