        Now supplied with NO CD !

        You have to download the music - which does not suit me and my drum set up. I did not even look to see if there was a CD as there has always been one with the book. The front cover has to make it clear about this.

        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)

        It’s Rockschool Drums grade 2 – always seems a large jump from grade 1. Different styles of drumming to play with full, click and non-click backing tracks. You will need to buy if you are thinking about taking the Rockschool exam after the 2012 transitional arrangements. CD tracks currently are not recognise in Itunes/Ipod although Rockschool are aware of this problem and should be sorted soon.
