Here are some additional resources I highly recommend to all students of percussion.

Percussive Arts Society-An International organization for percussion students and professionals.


National Association of Rudimental Drummers


Vic Firth Drum Rudiments-This is another great site that gives audio and video examples of the rudiments. Also, download the Vic Firth app with video lessons, rudiments with play along tracks, practice tips, artist bios and much more.


SABIAN Education-an outstanding resource with videos, glossary of cymbal related terms, Anatomy of a Cymbal explaining the different parts of a cymbal and how they work, a buying guide to assist in purchasing the right cymbals.


Pearl Drums Education-a collection of pdf documents on various topics related to percussion instruments.




Students need to have a metronome for practicing and with the advances in technology free Android and I tunes app metronomes are available. In the Google Play store I recommend the Simple Metronome.  You can find them in the Itunes store as well but, there are good apps available for free!
