Today I would like to introduce you to ‘FUNdamentals of Drumming for Kids.’ I co-wrote this award-winning instructional book/DVD with my friend Rich Redmond (Jason Aldean band). Our goal was to provide an instructional program that catered to young students (ages 5-10) in a way that mimicked elementary school education. Published by Modern Drummer and distributed by Hal Leonard, the book is set-up like a workbook with games, flash cards, illustrations, photography and our custom drum notation for learning music. The book received a lot of praise from the drum community upon its release. We were surprised to learn that the book is being used by drum shops and music schools across the country and abroad for older students who are just beginning to learn the instrument. The book won “Best in Show” at Summer NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) and is an Amazon Best-Seller in four countries (USA, UK, Canada and Spain). The best way to explain the origins and philosophy of the book is to share a video example that comes with the DVD. I am also posting a PDF link to our informational packet that further explains the book and the opportunity to become a FUNdamentals franchise (minimum 25 copies purchased).
