This book and CD by Chris Barron covers both the drum kit and the solo snare for orchestra, It presumes no prior knowledge, explaining musical notation and the names of the parts of the kit. The material is easy to follow. . . . There are duets and solo pieces for the snare drum, and various pop tracks for the kit players, along with the usual rudiments and plenty of reading exercises, so that anyone unfamiliar with notation should have a strong command of reading music by the time they have finished the book.

MI Pro (Musical Instrument Professional) magazine
Written for beginner drummers and takes them up to about Grade 2. . . . The CD includes examples of all the beats and pieces and is recorded in stereo, so that you can isolate the snare drum, bass drum or high-hat on the left- or right-hand channels. There are little backing tracks to practise the drum-kit beats to, and accompaniments for the pieces, which can also be played with the other parts in Learn as You Play Tuned Percussion and Timpani.
