Student Reviews

"Seeing that this book is all about how to practice it is useful to someone at any level of playing. To adopt some ideas from this book early on would greatly improve anyone’s playing in the long run. For the more experienced percussionist it provides feedback to see if what they are doing in the practice rooms is leading them on the correct path while also providing new material in the case that there is something that is troubling the performer." - Denver Ridgway
