The book contains eight original solos for snare drum and has been expanded to include five traditional rudimental solos every snare player should know. Print version is $9.95 and the e-book is just $5.00.

Welcome to Drummin’ Around. It is my hope that what you find here will be of benefit whether you’re a student (beginner or advanced) or educator. My focus will be on rudimental literacy and the application of rudiments in practice and performance. Thus far, I’ve included some classic rudimental solos, a wide variety of links to some not-so-known sites that are full of great information, and the beginning of a Care and Maintenance section that beginners and teachers of beginners will find of interest. And if there is something you would like to see included here, please let me know.
