This method for drums and percussion instruments doesn't show "official" drum sheet music.
All the transcriptions have been made listening to the recordings and studying the styles of the various drummers; we have carefully tried to recreate the original parts, but of course the performance and the sensitivity of the original performer played a great role.
Therefore, the drum sheets presented in this site are similar to the originals, but they're not exactly the same.

Topics in the basic and advanced drum lessons and in the online drum lessons published drum sheet music are: Rudiments & Fundamentals, Coordinated independence, Basic drum beats, Advanced drum beats, Snare drum studies, Drums grooves, Songs drum parts and Drum solo transcriptions, with transcriptions of songs and grooves by John Bonham, Phil Collins, Stewart Copeland, Steve Gadd, Ian Paice, Jeff Porcaro, and transcriptions of drum solos by Michael Bland, Elvin Jones, Philly Joe Jones, Dave Weckl, Tony Williams.
