A life behind the drums.

Art of Drumming $19.99

Steve White’s Art of Drumming is a book derived from a career spanning over three decades of playing drums and touring the world. Steve White has put together a collection of his favourite exercises and rudiment combinations that he has worked on and is still practicing to continually improve and develop his drumming.

In collaboration with UK drummer Russ Tarley, they have collated all the elements Steve has practiced over the years into this book to form a practical approach to using these concepts to help any drummer develop their skillset around the kit. This includes Steve’s favourite rudiment applications, systems for developing coordination, independence and time, studies in rhythm, linear phrasing, transcriptions of a solo performance and famous studio recordings.

There is a wealth of information packed into these pages, breaking down Steve’s knowledge and playing into lessons and exercises all drummers can take something from and inspire their own daily practice and performance. From playing live and in the studio, to the practice room and teaching, Steve can now share his vast experience of a life behind the drums.

Included in this book:

  • Over 3500 exercises
  • Rudiment applications
  • Co-ordination and independence development
  • Time Systems
  • Linear Phrasing
  • Exclusive and rare photos spanning Steve’s career
  • Live solo transcription
