I advise any drummer who wishes to acquire a high level of reading ability to encounter this useful book with a competent teacher. Since without excellent reading chops and expert guidance most people will not get beyond the second page.
I use this book for my students who have mastered the concepts found in the Podemski book. They have all been challenged by Poprtraits, and thy have all benefited by it's use.
Cirone has also published study books using the same rhythm notation in Portraits for tympani, keyboards, multi percussion, and drum set. Many of my students have successfully used these etudes as audition solos. It is quite impressive to be able to demonstrate reading, playing and interpretation skills on different instruments, using the same rhythmic notation.
