Here's the perfect resource for guiding you through those initial encounters with the beginning drum set player. This concise, clearly-written text gets right to the basics, such as tuning the drums, set-up, and reading drum notation. A large portion of the book is devoted to showing typical patterns for many different musical styles, from swing to rock to bossa nova. This is an invaluable aid for the director with little or no drum experience, and a user-friendly companion for the student.
