'How To Practise Drums - A drum education book for beginners, intermediate and advance drummers and a great drum gift' is a drum book aimed at all levels of drummers.
I have put all my drum practise tips together in one handy book. There is no filler and the latest edition (Released Dec 2013) has even more helpful advice included. The kind folks at Rhythm Magazine asked me to write an article on the subject after they read this book and appreciated the value it would bring to all drummers.
I have taken to heart comments that were made on the first edition, expanded on some ideas and even given a detailed break down of a weekly drum practise schedule for beginners, intermediate and advanced drummers.
Though these are just guidelines as you will understand how to create your own custom practise routine once you have read the book. Other topics that are covered include finding more time to practise, the importance of a practise diary and the importance of a drum teacher.
The book also includes links to have direct contact with me so if you have any questions or need help with any part of your drumming please contact me and I'll do my best to help you out.
Below are a few quotes from the happy people who have read my book 'How To Practise Drums - A drum education book for beginners, intermediate and advance drummers and a great drum gift'.
I hope to see you honest reviews once you have read the book.
“Great and concise. Sometimes it takes plain speaking to make you realise the obvious. Cheers Kyle, my boy loves it and it has inspired him to practice more often” Campersmudge (Amazon Review)
“...it condensed the basics of how to approach and organise practice time into a few easy to digest chapters and helped immensely to make practice time more productive. The techniques described here could apply to practising any instrument, and I would recommend it to any aspiring musician.“ Alan Flint (Amazon Review)
“This is a good book by Kyle with lots of good advice and suggestions about the importance of practising, how to practise and what to practise. Kyle gives straight, direct and to-the-point suggestions and advice in easy to understand language, and doesn't beat around the bush with over descriptive methods or with using big words. He offers his help readily to anyone with further questions about what he writes in his book, and I think that is very nice of him, given his busy schedule. ... it is a good reference piece and also a nice teaching tool for drumming teachers like myself. I hope that Kyle will write more books of this nature on other important subjects in drumming and I will definitely buy all of them!” John Silva (Amazon Review)
“I can honestly say that these simple things have helped me further develop my practice routine and I’ve seen immediate results. Each drummer is unique and different and some things may or may not apply. To have direction and a plan can only benefit you so why not read this book? If you can apply one or 2 things that will help you grow in your playing then wouldn’t it be worth it? If you find yourself scattered on what you practice, or playing with no discipline or focus then you need a plan, a plan on “How To Practice Drums” -Ermin Monzon
