    This book is just what my son wanted for school, it was recommended by his music teacher and has many of the bands he listens to included on the track thank you.

    Totally recommended and a welcome break from the more structured Rock School programme (which is excellent btw). Cannot wait to master these songs and move on.

    Drum teacher advised me to get this book as a starter for my drum lessons, the book is fantastic and gave me the correct information with perfect step by step instructions that i need to learn. Used the book when practising with drum teacher and when with a group of friends interested in playing music. Can't wait to be good enough to play the other grade books with some new tunes to drum to :)

    Sick of playing grade 1 songs you've never heard of? If youre answer is yes then you are like me. I love this book especailly rocking out to 'time is running out' by Muse. It is easy to follow and great for getting the grasps of the drums. Another thing good is that the songs are varied. Some have high tempo and others with lower tempo, So if you fancy you want to start of with a slow song and then go into a faster song, you can. Then again if youre not into rock then dont get it but the name of the book says it is a rock book and if you didnt reliase that then you shouldnt be playing the drums. Overall this is the best grade 1 book out there for me. The fact it is easy to follow and the song track is amazing makes it stand out from all the others. Pros: Songlist, Easy to follow, Variety of songs with different tempos. Cons: Not for rock haters. Rating: 9.6/10
