"I've been playing percussion now for 21 years. I took over a program in disarray, especially in the percussion section. I recently purchased the "Five Minute Drill" book from Ralph Hicks & Eric Rath, and have found it to be engaging, fun, and educational. Tapspace is a wonderful purveyor of percussion literature, and I recommend anyone and EVERYONE to purchase this book, from the beginning percussionist to the seasoned veteran, because the presentation and playability will prepare your percussionists for just about everything they may see. Don't forget to pick up a copy of "Beyond Basic Percussion" to supplement the learning they will get out of "Five Minute Drill." Thanks again, Tapspace!"
