Keeping the Beat: Tenor & Bass Drumming for Pipe Bands Book & DVD

Bob Meade's instruction book for drummers in the pipe band mid section offers top-quality instruction with a friendly, laid-back feel. The information in the text is very clearly and logically organized.  The DVD provides invaluable video instruction from drummer, teacher, and drumming judge Bob Meade.  The video starts with the basics of bass and tenor drumming, spends a half hour on tenor flourishing, goes on to spend time demonstrating bass drumming, and finally demonstrates some drumming with the sound of pipes -- 1 1/2 hours of drum instruction!
