BOOK LEVEL: ALL $24.99
Much like his DIY approach to playing drums and building a career with his band Lamb of God, award-winning drummer Chris Adler is carving his own path as author, publisher, and transcriber (with the help of up-and-coming metal drummer Travis Orbin) with his first book, The Making of New American Gospel. The book contains detailed drum charts for each tune from LOG’s debut album, plus introductory essays from Adler that cover everything from the band’s beginnings to the writing process for New American Gospel to the challenges of having to record, mix, and master an entire record in just seven days. Adler’s tone is friendly, open, and honest, making for a revealing glimpse at the inner workings of one of metal’s most powerful and sometimes most tumultuous bands.

- THE DRUMMER’S BIBLE: HOW TO PLAY EVERY DRUM STYLE FROM AFRO-CUBAN TO ZYDECO
BOOK/CDS (2) LEVEL: ALL $34.95
Recently updated by its coauthors to include nearly a hundred more reference grooves, this ambitious 200-plus-page tome continues to inspire, offering a variety of rhythmic concepts, from polka patterns to reggae beats to variations on the Afro-Cuban mambo. While the book’s wide scope will undoubtedly draw criticism from drumming specialists of all stripes, the newly added grooves and historical info included here help forge a more complete guide. Although CD track sequences are (sometimes) out of sync with the text, a “Quick Reference” section and bite-size exercises help users navigate this encyclopedic behemoth. Mix in an intro by Simon Phillips, and beginners and advanced players alike have a credible, valuable, and manageable rhythmic resource. (seesharppress.com)

Wow I can’t get over how this year is flashing by, lots of cool things happening at the moment both in my own music world and also that of my students. Some of my students are now actively gigging in successful bands and really making a go of it. Billy O’Key deserves a special mention as his playing has really developed over the last couple of years so much so that I trust him to fill in for some of my gigs that I can’t do. He’s now gigging,touring and doing some teaching himself,really pleased for him. Others have been preparing for the upcoming Trinity College Rock and pop exams coming later in the year. This is a really good course that I believe offers a fresher and more enjoyable approach than other outdated examination boards. The emphasis is on playing music in a performance situation and it’s really going down well with students of all ages. I’ve got about 4 spaces available for this next term, two on a Saturday morning and a couple of midweek afternoon/early evening slots. Please get in touch now if you’re interested in a free trial lesson. This free lesson is just that,no obligation,no nagging emails or calls. Come and try it out and get your introduction pack and if it’s not for you then don’t come back. Though I’m happy to say that the vast majority of people do!
Drum Lessons For Adults and Children in Sydney Northern Beaches

One question I get asked a lot from adults is “Am I tool old to learn drums?” The answer is definitely No, you’re never too old to take up the drums! I’m getting more and more adults coming for lessons lately and they’re getting some great results. I think learning a musical instrument like the drums is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have and you can get results pretty quickly with a bit of focused effort and a few lessons. I’d say around 25% of my students are now over 40 and for some drumming becomes a big part of their lives as they discover the joy of playing an instrument in a group setting and start gigging with local bands. So if you’ve ever had an inkling that you’d like to learn the drums and want to come along for a free trial lesson please get in touch. You just might find that spark you’ve been looking for!
