Book 1 contains 80 pages of sequential instruction covering rudimental studies, roll studies, contest solos, and bass drum and cymbal technique. Book 1 also includes 23 solos suitable for recitals and contests. Book 2 is much more than just a snare drum method! It continues the learning process by covering additional rudimental studies, tonal properties of the snare drum, theme and variations, musical forms, solos and duets. Book 2 also covers traditional rudimental style, corps style (by Jay Wanamaker), orchestral style, accessory instruments, and multiple-percussion techniques. The DVD includes demonstrations of all the rudiments and accessory instruments, plus solo performances by the authors. This title is available in SmartMusic.

User Review  - Darcy Castle -

Our son used Book 1 in school and was running out of 'work'. So glad you had this. If you don't know about this it's a great set to learn on whether you take lessons or are learning on your own. Read full review
