Drummers Jacky Bourbasquet (founder of the Sonor school network) and Claude Gastaldin (professor at the Geneva Conservatoire) have a “long and faithful friendship” that goes beyond playing music. Since 1997, the two percussionists have pursued a large-scale educational adventure that earned its fame under the name Drum Session.
Offered in a multilingual version (French, English, German, Spanish), the 17th Volume includes everything that brought the series its success: a progressive structure divided into levels, clear method instructions and a range of pieces – 29 in total – showcasing a wide variety of styles: jazz, progressive pop, tango and funk.
The method, which favours group work with orchestra, is enhanced with a CD (sold separately) in which each piece is recorded without the drums in two versions: one as an étude (slower), the other a tempo. A variety of tracks have been added for a total of 70 minutes of music. “A very useful tool, well-designed and including enough styles to satisfy nearly everyone” (Batteur magazine).
This book must be purchased with the CD accompaniment (AL30675) separately.
