George Lawrence Stone's two earliest books cover the true basics: rudiments. Stone was one of the earliest presidents of NARD, the National Association of Rudimental Drummers, and was well-known for judging drum competitions.
Military Drum Beats begins with the original 26 Essential Rudiments of Drumming.
The rearrangement of Frank E. Dodge's
Dodge Drum Chart includes over 400 standard drumming measures broken down by pattern. Both books are highly useful for the drum corps teacher and/or player as compact and perfect introductions to corps rhythms.
LIMITED QUANTITIES AVAILABLE
These two titles will soon be combined with a new book of Stone's competition solos!
