Drum Kit Notation
Unfortunately we are still in a situation whereby there is no consistency across the world of drumming so you will encounter some variations. However this is the system which makes the most sense to me and so any of the worksheets that I provide throughout the site will use this system.

 
Lessons
This area of the site is where I will be posting both demonstration video files and pdf worksheets to accompany the video. I have sectioned them as to the loose categories above.

Please bare in mind that this site is primarily aimed at students of a younger age so when I use the term "advanced" don't be expecting any Thomas Lang stuff here!
