    I use the Rockschool syllabus with my drum students, and the majority of them love it. The book features 6 songs at grade 6 level, some technical exercises and other useful material. Each song is in a different genre - from pop to hip hop. At the back of the book, there are some grade 6 level technical exercises, and also a sneak preview of the next grade. After a student finishes working on each book, I put them forward to sit the Rockschool exam, to which there is a fee. This is entirely optional however, but it is great experience and the qualifications are accredited, so can be great for the CV, and getting into college/university. Everything here is to a high quality; the book, the CD and the material overall. The CD features 3 versions of each song, 1 with drums, 1 without drums and 1 without drums but with a click.

    It came quickly and efficiently. No damage, and incredibly cheap compared to buying it from Rockschool, which is around £25.
