Drum-a-did-dle is an online resource portfolio for drum enthusiast and teachers looking to access quality sheet music and worksheets FREE of charge. We see it as a cookbook for drummers to dip into for new recipes, ideas and inspiration.
We believe that all music students should have access to quality teaching materials without the restrictions of cost and location. In the internet age we have the opportunity to share our knowledge and experience with the wider community of learners free of charge and directly into their homes.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Each month we will add a selection of sheet music, transcriptions and exercises with a “walk through” lesson offering an explanation of how to practice and incorporate the ideas into your playing. Over time we will be adding video tutorials to further demonstrate examples and offer a performance of each piece.
Be sure to keep checking back for new content and add a comment letting us know what you like and your latest drumming news. If you have any burning questions or a specific piece you would like added to the portfolio please get in touch.
