Drum Books by Alain Rieder
The material is sophisticated, precise, highly informative and very musical Drums & Percussion Magazine (D), 2019
This drum book is both innovative and rooted in tradition. It is designed to work on coordination in a groove context. It makes it easy to approach essential rhythmic concepts – from the most basic to the most complex – in a realistic, progressive and systematic way. Aimed at drummers of most levels, the book has an open structure that lets you develop your own ideas and creativity.
