    Reading Drummer: Rhythms, Rolls, Flams, Ruffs, and More

    This book was a disappointment. It lead you to believe they had tips for improving your notation reading. It was about as uninformative as any drum music book I've seen. It explained very little, and mentioned the drum instructor would give the finer points. Drum instructor?? The promo didn't mention that it should be used with a professional instructor. Very misleading.

    Sound as Though You're Not Reading

    There's no way around it. If you want your musicianship to soar to a higher level you must be able to sight-read drum notation. With diagrams, unintimidating language, and an easy to follow sequential structure, 'The Reading Drummer' is the perfect guide to improve your sight-reading skills. Fred Buda, a percussionist of the Boston Pops and faculty member at the New England Conservatory of Music says this: ' This is a welcome addition to help drummers learn that the art of reading is to make it sound like it's not being read.' 'The Reading Drummer' will help you to accomplish just that.
