This innovative method is a practical approach to playing the drum set. Students start their first lesson by playing an actual beat. The book is divided into two sections: Rock and Jazz. In each section, students learn the use of the hi-hat, ride cymbal, snare drum, and bass drum in their respective styles. A play-along CD is included for corresponding drum charts.
Lessons cover:
  • Hi-hat
  • Ride cymbal
