Yamaha Drum Fundamentals
Covers Grades 1-8
The Drum Fundamentals book (often called the 'Grey Book' or 'Grey Workbook') works alongside all three of the Drum Encounters workbooks, covering Grade 1-8 of the Yamaha Drum Encounters Syllabus.
Used as support material for the course, the book focuses on rhythmic articulation and development of technique. Using the book for reading and development of concepts, the possibilities are endless!
Having the ability to manipulate simple single line notation into any genre or style of music makes creativity the focus of this book. You will be able to develop solos, fills and interesting drum beats as well as secure your reading and technique to a high level, using the tried and tested 'Yamaha Method'.
The book is structured to run along side all three Drum Encounter books and has its own dedicated pieces for the exam syllabus. Drum fundamentals is an integral part of the Yamaha Drum Encounters course, but will provide you with content and ideas far beyond Grade 8.
