The legendary John H. Beck of the Eastman School calls it, “a monumental accomplishment,” and prolific author and publisher Joel Rothman calls it, “a wonderful piece of work.” With a Percussive Arts Society Hall of Famer and an author of over 100 drum books endorsing it, you know you need this book. The rudiments in this book have been developing in practice since the 1300s, they were published in books over a 200 year period, and took months just to compile and edit, often needing translation from antiquated notation styles. Now they’re available to you in one place in clear modern notation.
