Default Re: DRUM INSTRUCTION DVD & BOOK REVIEWS

NAME:
Alfred's Drum Method Book 1
STAR RATING:
#####
WORDED RATING:
Covers and answers many begining questions.
TARGET AUDIENCE:
Beginers of all levels
PUBLISHED BY:
Alfred Publishing
DESCRIPTION:
This book covers all the very begining topics. Although billed as a Snare drum book, it covers what we all should know. Time signatures, reading the notes and their values. Lessons are laid out in a very orderly fashion all building from the previous page and setting the player up for the next page. The solo pages can be very long and tedious but the lessons are very well earned. They help to reinforce lessons learned on previous pages.
The book comes as 2 different versions, With and without DVD. I would suggest saving the few extra dolars for the DVD version. Very dated and droning. Highlights the solo pages well but doesnt have any more meat in it that the book doesnt explain very well to begin with.
