Product Details


Alfred's Drumset Method, Book 2 is a continuation of Alfred's Beginning Drumset Method. The rock and jazz vocabularies previously learned in Book 1 have been expanded, and additional concepts and genres, such as blues, 3/4 time, brushes, and Latin are introduced. The book includes a professional-quality recording demonstrating a number of the beats, fills, and styles presented throughout the book. This will enable the student to hear the beats and fills played with dynamics, so the student feels as though they're actually sitting in with a band while reading the included charts.
