I use the Rockschool syllabus with my drum students, and the majority of them love it.
The book features 6 songs at grade 5 level, some technical exercises and other useful material.
Each song is in a different genre - from pop to hip hop. At the back of the book, there are some grade 5 level technical exercises, and also a sneak preview of the next grade.
After a student finishes working on each book, I put them forward to sit the Rockschool exam, to which there is a fee. This is entirely optional however, but it is great experience and the qualifications are accredited, so can be great for the CV, and getting into college/university.

Everything here is to a high quality; the book, the CD and the material overall.

The CD features 3 versions of each song, 1 with drums, 1 without drums and 1 without drums but with a click.

No. 5 in the essential series for any budding drummer. Clear and relatively simple and very informative. I must admit that to a certain extent, the older series felt better, but time moves on. So these books plus a good teacher and lots of practise should set you well on your way.

First of all, this is hardly grade 5. The notation is simple and even looking further in at the Rock-school grade 8 stuff is just lacklustre and disappointing to the modern drummer wanting a challenge for his/her final grade. The Rock-school grade 5 does not teach you the necessary skills and techniques to span across all genres of drumming. i have recently switched to the trinity syllabus and I could not be more happy. Your playing will drastically improve and you will instantly gain the tastes for all types from songo feel to the rock feel. I were you as a younger drummer or as a more experienced one in grade 5 i would suggest buying the grade 4 trinity-guildhall book, simply because it offers the better drumming experience for more of a challenge. If you just want to have the fast track to 'Grade 8' just for a bragging right and UCAS points then buy this book, but if you want to truly better you playing then buy the trinity guildhall Drum Kit 2 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Drum-2014-2019-Book-Grades-Audio/dp/085736314X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1467532671&sr=8-1&keywords=drum+kit+2).

If you are thinking about doing grade 5 rock school, buy the book here. I got mine the day after order in mint condition and easy to open packaging. Well worth it. No effort.
