New off the press! The Paradiddle Workbook is full of exercises, solos & duets that put the single, double, and triple paradiddles to work for you. The workbook also includes a few pages of drum set workouts and ideas that will strengthen your independence on the kit. We've included a couple staff-lined pages for teaching and writing our your own ideas. A couple exercises introduce different te heads to read - reflecting the many situations a drummer/percussionist will work from. The workbook is over 50 pages! I received your Paradiddle Workbook and found it to be a wonderful workout tool. I enjoyed practicing with the exercises myself, so I would definitely recommend this book for every drummer. - Louie Bellson, Drummer, Composer, Bandleader.
