Be a Drummer book.1 has been used by thousands of drummers and teachers since its launch back in 2010. We're delighted to now make this essential drummer's guide available in PDF format for download Accompanying audio tracks in mp3 format are included in the zip file.


Be a Drummer book.1 is the ideal beginner guide to drumming for kids. Each page has a drumstick practice record. If you choose to print pages then you can colour in a section of the drumstick to indicate every 10 minutes of practice they do. Tutors or parents can then total up the minutes of practice on completion of the book and fill in the certificate accordingly.


Book.1 takes beginners through the basics including holding the sticks correctly, simple rudiments as well as rock beats and drum fills. We also look at note values and rests and make them easy to learn with our cut out ‘flash cards’. Kids will have great fun learning the drums with ‘Be a Drummer Book.1’ and at the same time gain a basic understanding of music theory, develop hand eye co-ordination and get to grips with timekeeping and listening skills with our playalong songs!


Practicing the drums shouldn’t be a chore, so have fun from lesson one.


Good Luck!
