Big Band Drumming At First Sight
Book and MP3 CD
by Steve Fidyk
Steve Fidyk, drummer with The Army Blues Big Band from Washington, D.C., wrote a guide that explains the ins and outs of improving your sight-reading skills in a big band setting. Let's check it out.
Improve Your Big Band Drum Chart Sight Reading Skills
Steve then covers the most common musical forms along with his method for interpreting a drum chart's road map.
The remainder of the book contains ten big band arrangements, along with mark-ups of each chart providing Steve's "road map" instructions that detail how each piece should be played. By the time you're finished with these examples, you'll have enough experience to easily be able to mark up your own drum charts. A complete set of unmarked charts are also provided for you to print and sight-read.
Bottom Line: Big Band Drumming At First Sight Book/MP3 CD
This book and CD set should not only be required study for all middle and high school drumset players, but for anyone looking to improve their big band chart sight reading skills.
While $19.99 is a good value for a 72-page book with an MP3 CD, you'll find it online at an even better discount:
