for Drumset
Certificate Program Workbook

This comprehensive introduction to Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian drumming styles is derived from the courses developed at the famed Drummers Collective in New York City. Each style section contains a biography of the faculty member who teaches the style, explanations and information on the style and its derivatives, historical references and background, notated examples, performance tips, discographies, and bibliographies. Most important of all, the two CD set lets the user hear the notated examples with performance tracks by the Drummers Collective Faculty and play-along tracks where the player can join in. Style areas covered include Afro-Cuban, Afro-Pop, Brazilian and New Orleans (Zydeco, Cajun, et. al.). This book and CD package will be a terrific way for developing players to greatly expand and enrich their drumming "palette."
