This book has been written, tried, and tested with hundreds of real students over the last 8 years. Only the best and most useful exercises have made it in. With that said, there is an extensive amount of material here. I have spent literally hundreds of hours putting this book together.

This could be used by a diligent student as a coursework. It could be used by a teacher as a curriculum. It could be used by a beginner or a professional. There are exercises contained without that suit all skill sets.

Unique features of this book are:

  1. Suggested tempo ranges and targets for all beats in the book.
  2. Extensive detailed shuffles section
  3. Poly-rhythms explained and demonstrated in a step-by-step method
  4. Rock Brushes!
  5. Comprehensive jazz comping exercises
  6. So much more!

A book like this would cost 3 times as much in stores. If you are still unsure that this is your one stop drum methodology, why not get my "free sample bundle" first?

Thanks for your support. Any feedback or reviews are highly appreciated. I can amend/fix if you have suggestions! Thank YOU.
