        Really enjoying this; you can download backing tracks from their web site, and play along.

        most of the pieces are full of good basic patterns, and grooves to get pupils started. a couple seem pointless and complicated by bad music.

        Musicroom Reviews

        This is by far the most complete "sheet music with backing tracks" based method for learning and teaching drums. Thanks to Rockschool for publishing great pedagogic resources and to Musicroom for being a 100% reliable seller with A+ customer service! (Purchased Rockschool Drums Grades 1 - 8)
