By Bruce E. Elliott on August 28, 2008
Format: Sheet music
There is a reason this book has been around for a long time. I've used it myself for over 30 years ! Harr breaks thing down well. Rudimentaly sound with each page a new challenge. Most pages at the start have eight lines each with a different set of notes and then has a ninth line that mixes the other eight lines together. I have found that students learn quite well with this approach. This book is a must for beginers!!

I was taught from this book 56 years ago and had used it as a teaching tool myself for beginning students. What distinguishes it from other drum methods is its basic sequential development of reading skills from quarter note patterns, eighth notes, sixteenths, and rolls. There are also exercises throughout the book that put things together into a composition appropriate for all that preceded it. There are no tricky patterns here, but rather simple basic strokes that one might find in any drum part written for an orchestra or concert band. Above each pattern is a fail safe method of counting to demonstrate the note values. My advice is to use this book and follow it with Book II which deals with drum rudiments. It is a great combination.

Love this book...the progression is perfect for me (older wanna-be drummer)....the CD makes it much fun to practice. You'll know what it's supposed to sound like, and if you do the exercises in order, it's alot easier than trying to take shortcuts (we all want to be real drummers immediately :) )
Myself and another drummer practice with this, and our private teachers have told us we are really improving with this method.
