So what is The Linear Matrix?

How it works

Utilised in the way the books demonstrate, you can create literally millions of linear combinations from this one page! Each book focuses on three key areas: Speed, fills and grooves. Giving you plenty of examples to get started with as you can see below.

The Linear Matrix series is designed for both students and teachers. Its primary aim is to break down the vast and often daunting topic of linear drumming by tackling it in one rhythmic subdivision at a time. 


Here’s a quick sneak peak at what the 16th note matrix looks like!
