Product description

With Drumset Essentials, Peter Erskine takes you step by step from the very beginning, with the most fundamental concepts about technique and musicality discussed and illustrated in detail. Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished drummer, Peter's basic rules are sure to improve your skills. The exercises in this first volume of three concentrate on essential hand and feet techniques, coordination of the hands and feet, and the most elementary beats with variations. Two basic styles are addressed in this book: straight eighth-note beats and swing or triplet-based beats. The available CD contains examples of many of the written exercises for listening, as well as original Peter Erskine tracks both with and without drums for play-along use. Future volumes will cover more complicated stickings, beats and rhythmic variations, and will include ideas for fills and solos. All three volumes are designed to provide the reader with basic musical facts while exploring some of the many possibilities that await in the world of rhythm. All of the material is presented in a nurturing and positive manner, and Peter's unique musical and teaching sensibilities are evident on every page.
