Product Description

HALF PRICE! This series of books contain everything a drummer needs to prepare for the performance and technical work components of Trinity Guidhall drum kit examinations, including clearly focused rudiments leading progressively towards the rudimental study requirements and performance pieces for groups A and B.

All performance pieces have been written specifically for the syllabus by leading players and educators of drum kit including Malcolm Ball, Keith Bartlett and George Double.

Group A pieces are to be performed with a backing track and Group B pieces are solo pieces for kit. The CD supplied includes backing tracks for the Group A pieces in addition to full performances (with kit) of all Group A pieces. Uniquely, all recorded tracks have been performed by the composers using session musicians for an authentic approach.

Not only written with Trinity Guildhall examinations in mind, this series of books is a must have for all players who want to develop their technique and notation reading through progressive steps and a range of drumming styles.

The new guildhall syllabus is detailed and well composed and much improved from the previous one. It is also great value for money to with 2 grades per book unlike the `Rockschool' syllabus which has a separate book for all 8. The grade 1 & 2 is superb and gives a great grounding for beginners featuring basic rudimentary exercises as well as solo pieces and songs to play along with that have a great modern feel and a good variety of styles, touching on Latin grooves, reggae as well as rock/pop. As a drum teacher I have noticed that generally the guildhall syllabus is a little more detailed than `Rockschools' which has been criticised by some as been `dumbed' down a little too much ignoring some techniques, especially in the use of rolls and use of BOTH feet. Not to mention an early introduction to time signatures other than common time.

It is certainly true that there is an introduction to the use of both feet in the exercises as well as a ¾ pattern which `Rockschool' inexplicably ignores and there is certainly a standard of drumming required to pass this exam higher than that from `Rockschool' (especially in higher grades). However; many believe that `Rockschool' is more contemporary and engages young drummers a bit better with a CD of backing tracks which have a more `rockier' edge. So then, pays your money, takes your chances. If there is one criticism I have of the Guildhall books is the backing CD recording is a bit quiet compared to the higher recording levels of `Rockschool'. Also there is still no unification of drum music with open hi-hats, cymbal crashes and ride cymbal notation being different to that of `Rockschool'!! Who is actually right is an argument that will rumble on and on no doubt.

An essential purchase if you are taking the graded exams. Comes with a CD.
Only drawback for me is there aren't any rock tunes.

Shows you what is needed/what you can expect for grades 1&2
Only gripe is that the music tracks are just numbered, not tagged to make them easier to relate to the book.

It is good and has a CD with it so that you can listen to what you are learning. It is a bit delicate and CD bag is flimsy and can break with not to much physical activity. It does the job and I would recommend that this is for people looking to take the Trinity Guildhall exam and also people who maybe just wan't to learn how to read and play drum music from a book and have a bit of fun.

I recently took the plunge to become a drum and percussion teacher and two of my students started the ball rolling by asking about grades. I decided that I would order the Grade 1 & 2 book through Amazon, who offer the cheapest price I could find. However, with the Royal Wedding and the subsequent bank holidays, I predicted the delivery being too late to use the book in the next week lessons, as the shipping was predicted the day after I finish teaching for the week. I ordered on the Wednesday, the book was here on Friday. Perfect service, Amazon - couldn't be happier.
