Intended for the beginning drum student, this book contains many essential reading and playing skills for the snare and drumset. These studies are integrated in a logical, sequential order. For example, a new rhythm is introduced and studied on the snare drum, then later applied as a beat and then a fill. The same rhythm will appear later in the book for review and then in one of the play-along tunes. This way each concept is reinforced and utilized in different ways. Because of the need to stress the importance of dynamics and their role in the proper execution of playing a piece, dynamic markings are included in many of the snare drum exercises. The author has gone to extreme measures to provide a fun and humorous way of learning to play drums while at the same time implementing the fundamental tools necessary to be a proficient musician. The online audio download presents eight play-along tunes with and without the drums.
