FUNdamentals of Drumming for Kids is the culmination of the collective experiences and educations of a professional player (Rich Redmond) and a player/parent (yours truly) who both understand the tangible benefits of exposing children to music at a young age. Whether or not a child decides to pursue an instrument seriously, the skill set he or she develops will provide an edge in all aspects of education. This includes memory, creativity, and enhanced reading and writing skills. Drum teachers and parents can both use this book to capture a child’s attention. Once they have their interest they can use the teaching aides to explain all facets of the instrument. The book provides a well-rounded study that starts with the history of drums and ends with the child playing along using a special tablature system that interprets written music in an easy and understandable way. Best of all this book/DVD makes learning fun. Get your copy over on Amazon.
