It is the MELBAY'S MODERN DRUM METHOD GRADE 1!
Thanks for the kind words regarding the Modern Drum Method Vol. 1~
This method is part one of a three part series that I've written for Mel Bay (the other two books will be presented in 2110/2111). They are meant to help a student develop fundamentals such as the various hand holds and stick positions, reading note and rest values, developing basic coordination of your hands and feet and basic beat structures.
Grades 2 and 3 deal with more advanced concepts such as The Moeller Technique, style analysis of Brazilian and Afro-Cuban music plus the history and development of the drum set throughout the 20th century.
Most importantly, I wrote all (3) method books so that a student can pick them up and work through the material presented sequentially without the aid of a teacher.
Thanks for writing~
