Student Reviews

"I found the information in this snare drum book to be very contextual and progressive. There is a lot of good etudes and exercises to work in this book to help advance a student in the realm of snare drum performance. It starts off with slower exercises to help build the students ability and works to help build flams, accents, dynamics, and quality of other difficult playing techniques. There is very little in the way of explanation in this book, it just dives right in. There are little, short notations at the beginning of the exercises to explain the information one in about to play in the “here is what the base form is” kind of way. But that is about it, there isn’t much in the way of how to play each selection, or what it works the most on. So, it really puts all of its eggs in the quality of the teacher working out of this book’s basket. Its up to the teacher to explain the motivation of the book to their respective students. This is what it received its rating of three-stars." - Thomas Scott
