DRUMSET DUET
COLLECTION
TALKING STICKS is a giant collection of drum set duets - in two volumes!  It starts with easy pieces and progresses to music with complex rhythms and styles. The individual parts in each duo have comparable levels of difficulty, so that drum sets 1 and 2 can easily be interchanged. All duos are excellent recital pieces, each lasting approximately 2-3 minutes. Great for group lessons - these duos can also be used as a reference for grooves and fills. Includes play-along CD's covering more than seven hours of music with two different tempi for each duo!  This well-designed collection is a reflection of the authors 25 years of concert and pedagogical experience. Order one for your studio and have your students grab their own copy for the best performance options. Or, order the 2-pack for the best price point.

" . . . written to satisfy the needs of students everywhere who love to play drums together with their friends, their teachers and other students.  It is also for teachers looking for appropriate literature for exciting ensemble playing at all levels of difficulty. A high priority is for the players to have fun with a good groove!"  . . . Matthias Krohn 
DRUMSET TRIOS

QUARTETS
 
34 TRIOS & QUARTETS FOR DRUMSET(S)
This collection contains 34 drumset trios and quartets suitable for beginners as well as  those who are a little more advanced.  If you already know my two-volume DRUM METHOD, then you are going to know roughly what to expect from this book; if not, then why not take a look at these study materials as well?  I have noticed that young drummers greatly prefer practicing and particularly performing in groups rather than alone.  This positive experience, which started with a group performance of about 10 pieces in 2008, has led me to write and publish a complete collection, in many styles and time signatures.  I hope this book will give your young drummers a lot of happiness and motivation. . . .
