Title: The Rudimental Cookbook Book and CD

Author: Edward Fretag

Instrument: Snare Drum


This Monday we will check out Edward Fretag’s, The Rudimental Cookbook Book and CD. This book includes the 26 American Standard Rudiments, the Percussive Arts Society Rudiments, an extensive list of Drum Corps Hybrid Rudiments and 25 rudimental contest solos. The book introduces all of these rudiments in an approachable manner that will help develop the skills to advance further in their playing.

While this book should be a staple for every beginning percussion student, there is so much great information that any drummer at any level would benefit from the material in this book.  I would note, that an understanding of reading basic music is important when using this book. If you are still starting out, make sure to work with an instructor to help you get started in the right track. With that said, as you work through this book, your skills of playing and reading will greatly improve. There are easier solos and advanced solos that all utilize certain rudiments to teach new skills.

Also included is a CD with all the recording of the solos in this book with is a great reference when starting to learn these solos.

This book should be a staple for any percussionist, so if you don’t have it, pick up a copy today!
