Drum Book Recommendations / by Ross Farley


I thought it was about time I updated my previous post on the best drum books. As I've got close to 50 drum books in my collection at the moment, I decided not to limit myself to my top five like before.

I've grouped the books loosely by theme, but most of the books could fit into multiple categories so I suggest you check out the link if a title catches your eye (I've linked to Amazon where possible as they include a book preview). If the book has a star (*) by the author's name it's because it's one of my favourites.

When buying a drum book, I recommend grabbing the paperback version. If you're anything like me, you'll want to annotate and mark your favourite exercises. This (for obvious reasons) is a lot easier with a physical book!

Here we go...

Stick Control / Bass Drum Control / Technique


All Rounders


Advanced Concepts

Sight Reading

That's all for now. If you have any comments, questions or drum book recommendations let me know below or on Twitter.
