Learning to play drums is not about studying---it’s about playing---so it should be FUN! If you’re looking to rock out, do you want to spend hours trying to figure out how to read music, and then slave away at rudiments? We didn’t think so. No, we think you should rock out right away. Start with simple concepts like setting up and tuning your drums then move on to learning basic beats, fills, and even the techniques of some of the greatest drummers of all time. In short, this is not your dad’s drum method. Pick up those drumsticks, open this book, and PLAY!
