        Musicroom Reviews

        The patterns are well within reach for any beginner. Babtunde's narration throughout is clear though not as concise as other instructional DVD's (In fact sometimes it defies gravity!) However, anyone with a year's experience of serious playing will probably view this DVD as giving away very little, if anything at all. This is due to the level of Babatunde's playing. For example, his show piece, "The Story of Fire" is essentially 5 minutes of two stroke rolls, at a moderate pace, across three drums. I would put the technical diffculty of the piece at no more than a grade 3/4.
