very clear and easy to read
rather short bits to read could do with offering longer pieces the short ones are easy to learn at a glance and do not require much skill or patience to play

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating The variations are fortunately different from the pieces normally found in Trinity Guildhall or Rockschool study pieces. Drum fills get the students used to ending on the 4th beat which helps them later where the next bar begins with a crash that they often think is still the fill. In this book, all the way from grade 1, the 4th beat is often that crash after a basic fill, also getting them ready for jazz or reggae with simplicity. The ease of grooves makes reading the fill ahead whilst grooving more manageable. The increasing length of pieces as grades progress is gradual and grade appropriate. The number of bars is too often the same, almost always 4 or 8 all the way to grade 4. Bar counting is as if not more important than fill reading, in sight-reading. But it does require knowledge of tempo and style denotations all the way through, putting the player in context of sound and feel also. The progress is grade appropriate, for example with grade 2 introducing semi-quavers and grade 3 introducing bossa nova, 3/4 and 12/8 as you'd expect. Good value for the money.
