Drum and Percussion Books by
Bang Drum Studio.


I have an abiding interest in drumming as personal development and have run various drum workshops with this in mind, including drum workshops for people with learning difficulties and mental health issues.

I am in the process of writing a series of drum books and percussion books, the first of which is a beginner's guide to the djembe, in which I guarantee you will learn all the basic djembe strokes, learn the unique system of djembe notation and read / play / write your own rhythms within an hour, or your money back!

If you have ever tried to fathom online or other systems of notation for the djembe, you will realise one thing - they don't work! My systems of notation and teaching  djembe are designed to be organic and instinctive, allowing the total beginner to "play what you see" within seconds.  This really is a djembe book with a difference.

The second percussion book is a beginner's guide to the cajon. Once again, you will learn all the basic cajon strokes, cajon notation and read / play / write your own rhythms within one hour, or your money back!

The third book is called The Holistic Drummer and covers everything you need to know about drumming (and your approach to drumming) that the various drumming books out there don't cover!

I have personally developed and tested many of the methods and techniques incorporated in this ground-breaking book. These techniques include those relating to relaxation, performance anxiety, preparation, co-ordination, ergonomics, rhythmic vocabulary, pattern development and recognition, independence, interdependence, muscle memory, organic solo techniques, improvisational methods, musicality and many other areas.
