Great news! There is a new and second version of BOOK ONE and BOOK TWO!
On every page there is a QR code that refers to inspiring & supporting videos.
And for example, a chapter has been added in which the hi-hat foot is trained extra well. And now there is also a chapter with basic rhythms from Latin America.
Some existing chapters have been expanded, such as ‘adapting the beat’ and ‘modulation’. And maybe you had already seen that the new 2020 audio package has grown enormously compared to the 2017 edition.
For the time being, this second version is only available via the digital release. But the soft-paper edition will hopefully be available soon.
Everyone knows that novice drummers want to learn a lot. But nobody knows if that fire is big enough for a long drum career. Sometimes the purchase of a serious method book is just a step too far.
For that reason I have made a very small edition for starters: 360DRUMS BOOK ZERO. This free e-book can greatly help every new drummer, both with and without a teacher.
You our your student will learn a new concept on every page, and in this way you actually play along with almost all famous radio hits after studying some of these pages. Furthermore, you will also combine beats, fills & play-alongs with every exercise. That basic principle is the way to learn to play the drums well.
BOOK ZERO is available for download (click this link below) and can be found in the iTunes Book Store as well.
In the latest edition of the Slagwerkkrant (the Dutch trade magazine for drummers) there is a nice article about my teaching method for pop drums 360DRUMSbook (two books, audio, video & app). Mark Eeftens describes in a beautiful way why these books are so very useful, for every drummer and drum teacher. Thank you very much Mark!
“The smart thing about the audio tracks is that they really do build up from slower tempo’s where you learn the fastest and most thoroughly … the rhythms contain many variations and patterns that you need in daily playing practice … they start simple but are ultimately bold and challenging … so no bookmarks or long texts but practice and apply immediately! “- Mark Eeftens
