A fun, fast, progressive method for all ages.

Clear diagrams show drums, positions and stick-holds.

Before you know it, you're playing bass, snare and hi-hat.

Fills are introduced early, including many that are well-known in songs.

Lots of suggested listening so you can hear the patterns and play with songs you know.

The progressive and sequential nature of the book as well as the fact that it caters to different learning styles makes it the perfect choice for students taking private or group drum lessons.

Essentially everything you need to know to be able to play along with pop and rock songs and nothing else. Like an express train that doesn’t stop at the stations you don’t want to get off at.

"All my drum students are using this tutor book. Paul's methodology is presented clearly in a concise framework. Rhythms are introduced in logical steps and students progress at a fast pace.  It is fun being able to play along with suggested music tracks too. My students and I would recommend this to any schools with a drumming program."                                                                  - Barbara Tauber - Head of Music & Assistant Principal, Mosman Public School
