To teach young aspiring rock stars all the rudiments, grooves, and fills they need to get drumming in no time, educator Mark Powers has launched a series of kid-friendly drum guides. Students are led through the fun, focused books (available in both Kindle and paperback formats) by cartoon character Slammin’ Simon and his turtle sidekick, Rudi (short for “rudiment,” of course).
In the Guide to Mastering Your First Rock & Roll Drum Beats, Simon and Rudi introduce basic quarter note and 8th-note drumset grooves needed to start performing in a rock style.
These guides are perfect for use in the lesson room, by instructors who work with young students, as well as at home by parents of children learning to play percussion.
To celebrate the launch of Slammin’ Simon’s first book, the first ten verified purchasers and reviewers will receive some incredible giveaways, including a 14″ Remo drumhead, a pair of Vic Firth 5A drumsticks, and a one-year digital subscription to Modern Drummer magazine. Also, thanks to Amazon’s MatchBook program, buying the paperback version of this book allows download of the Kindle digital copy for no additional cost.
Slammin’ Simon’s Guide to Mastering Your First Rock & Roll Drum Beats is available at http://www.amazon.com/Slammin-Simons-Guide-Mastering-First-ebook/dp/B00YI15U9I.
