Don't be fooled by the title - this is not a book for children, rather it is a complete and comprehensive guide to snare drum techniques and rudiments for the elementary Drum student.
Starting with the very basics, Seth Goldberg's tutorial system guides you through your first left and right hand coordination exercises, teaching both accurate timing and how to read snare drum notation. Before long you will be mastering the Flam, the Drag, the Double Drag, the Paradiddle and the Flamacue. Each lesson pushes your snare drum technique into a new area of expertise, with lots of guidance concerning phrasing, dynamics, counting and much more.
Free from unnecessary extras, this tutor method shows you how to develop some serious 'chops' and really master this demanding instrument.
