The accompanying CD provides appropriate supporting backing tracks/teacher’s part for each stage. Great preparation for Trinity Guildhall drum kit examinations.
Great for new learners, both kids and adults. You don’t need to know theory, it teaches you all you need to know about charts in 2/4 3/4 or 4/4 time. It prepares you for reading if you’re learning.
Includes duets to keep the teacher on their toes. The students enjoy playing with another musician and this is the only book so far that does it.
Covers the foot work as well.
