Drumming made accessible for the complete beginner! This easy to follow book teaches basic drum set percussion concepts progressively, so that if you stick with it, you will have a good foundation upon which to further your musicianship. Four learning tracks are presented in the book: Technique - including the grip, sticking and methods used to achieve musical sounds, as well as the principle of learning good habits from the beginning. 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.
