Nominated for the 2016 Music Education Awards.

Play the drums right away without knowing music theory.

For over thirty years I have taught drums and percussion to a large number of students, and I have always taken care to respect the personality of each one.

If there is no miracle method, no unique learning process, there are on the other hand essential basics to understand when playing an instrument.

This book is the result of two years of work with one of my students who had difficulty integrating the conventional reading of music. I developed this method to enable him to play the drums without reading a single note of music in order to overcome his difficulty.
The aim of these exercises is to give a solid basis for assimilating the mechanisms of the language of the drums and to allow the understanding of rhythm in a new form. There is nothing to prevent you from reading scores in their classical form later on, as the perception of rhythms will only be made easier.

The book is divided into two parts:
The first part uses the binary patterns of rock rhythms, the second part the ternary rhythms of blues and shuffle.
The concept is very simple: one drawing / one shot
Start slowly and accelerate little by little.

The secret of the interpretation will be the regularity of the cymbal strokes (or hi-hat), the “drive“. Count out loud, settle into the rhythm and get into the groove!

Children, teenagers, adults, this method is made for you.

Have fun!
