2 Beat Trek (Drum-set)

The "Head Start" Collection consists of 9 easy drum-set solos written for beginning students. Each of the solos is about a page long and introduces a few new concepts in each.


Check out the "Drum-Set" page on the website to find the full book, which includes detailed descriptions of each solo, a "Teachers and Students" section tailored towards using the solos in a lesson context, a notation legend, musical glossary, and style example guide. The total cost of the book is less than purchasing each of the solos individually as well!

2 Beat Trek

There's a Cat in My Boot!

Low and Slow

Joy Ride

1, 2, 4...4!

Hit Open. Hit Closed. Case Closed.

The Former and the Ladder

From this solo's program notes:

An introduction to the 2 beat pattern, and a very simple introduction of independence around the drums as well, from single drums to snare and kick together, and finally snare, kick,

and hi-hat all together.


New skills include:

Reading quarter notes and eighth notes. Identifying kick drum, snare drum, high and low toms, and hi-hat. Playing forte, piano, and accents. Recognizing eight bar sections.
