        Professional presentation, well produced musical pieces that are enjoyable to play. The ability to play to a track with no click which really helps timing and feel - although tracks are available with full drum track for reference.
        The bulk of the material in the book covers the learned pieces, coverage of the other sections of the exams is minimal - a couple of lines of notation at best. The quality of the material and music is good, it's good fun and well structured, but at £16 for a single grade - effectively 8 pages of notation covering 4 pieces, 4 downloadable tracks and some supplementary information on the exam (which is covered in all other books in the series) it is way overpriced.

        Very unhappy tha the book did not contain a disc that I ordered. Whilst I know the music is downloadable this is no good to me or my granddaughter as I do not know how to do this and my granddaughter does not have a computer. She is dependent on playing the music through a CD player.
        I do not think you appreciate everyone is not IT savvy. Please send me a cd.

        It’s Rockschool 2012/18 – for level 3 it seems more difficult than the previous syllabus. A good variety of different musical styles which is good, although personally none them inspire me.

        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)
