No Drumset Required~Your
First Drum Lessons was written for the drumming curious and
enthusiast alike after teaching hundreds of first drumset lessons
to many students who did not yet have a drumset. As a matter of
fact it was a full year after getting my first pair of drumsticks
before I got a drumset myself! There are many, many exercises
you can do to explore your interest in drumming and start learning
right now. This book covers your first drum lessons as I teach
to private student. I hope these grooves and patterns will both
motivate and inspire the creativity in you. Enjoy your lesson
and don't forget to check out the accompanying online audio examples,
hearing it can make all the difference! - Glenn R.
