Drumming made accessible for the complete beginner!

Reading - basic reading principles are introduced in this book in logical sequence. Writing - by actually notating the rhythms you find challenging, you'll develop an increasingly intimate awareness of the note and rest values of which they are comprised. Application - after basic principles are introduced, you'll have the opportunity to apply them in a musical context. Includes a CD demonstrating the examples in the book is available.
