Rudiments are one of the most important aspects to develop when learning to play the drums.  Don’t overlook them.  This is what makes or breaks a good percussionist.  Without them; its like not learning your ABC’s

He was a jazz educator, bandleader, arranger and composer. He was also a pioneer in using two bass drums which was not done before his time.

Stick Control

This is by far one of the most popular books for drummers. It is a best-seller year after year. I have to be honest; I feel all of the hype on the book is not as worthy as some may think. Although the book is good to have and it is good to run through the entire book, at least once in your life. It is not the holy grail of books for drumming in no way.
