Learning to read pipe band drumming notation can be a daunting and confusing endeavour. To make matters worse, any knowledge of traditional or classical music theory a drummer may have does little to explain the swing and other unique rhythms inherent in the music. In The Bare Bones, pipe band drumming's five styles are assigned their own unique set of rhythm syllables. The use of rhythm syllables is a time tested educational tool and has been proven to accelerate students' rhythmic understanding. Download The Bare Bones and start your "reading journey" today!
"The 60 Rudiments of Pipe Band Drumming" is a comprehensive mini-book designed to teach the rudiments in a thoughtful and logical way. The book divides the rudiments into three levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced) and comes complete with a series of pre-requisites, allowing students to progress through the rudiments in order from 1 to 60.
Zero to 60
Zero to 60: The 60 Rudiments in the Five Pipe Band Drumming Styles is a comprehensive rudiment training program for the pipe band drummer. When most pipe band drummers learn rudiments, they learn only one or two variations of each rudiment (round or pointed). This approach presents a limited view of the true scope of knowledge needed to master your rudiments across all five styles of pipe band drumming. Zero to 60 places each rudiment into the five styles of pipe band drumming: marches, round reels, jigs, 6/8 marches and strathspeys resulting in over 800 rudiment variations. The Zero to 60 mini books are miniature "deep dives" into individual rudiments. Buy only the mini books you think will help you the most or download the free ones and try them out. Rudimental facility is the key to playing complicated scores and advancing through the grades. If you've ever dreamt of playing with a grade 1 band the work starts with the fundamentals.
