Marty's debut book utilizes his four decades of drum experience having coached 1000's of drummers from all diferent backgrounds & cultures.  Marty's paradigm in this book series  explores the importants of  "The Basics." Although often over looked and ignored, plying drums uses the skills and concept of coming out of a beat into the fill, and returning to the "1" smoothly, consistently and effortlessly.  Although most drummers  play it by heart, Fullard explores  the theory that there is way more to this than meets the eye.  Fullard has coached multi -platinum selling drummers and totally entry - level drummers, yet there is a tendency to miss the importance of what initially seems to be "The Basics," at both levels. The book gives both beat and fill ideas, with charts, as well  as note theory. There is practical help to enhance chart reading. "Doing The Basics Well"  is aimed at drummers, teachers and students of all levels and abilities.  Marty works with drummers of all abilities and is also a drum therapist. This  book will help drummers understand notation and sight reading and wil help drummers wrap their heads around time signatures and note values.  It will also help inspire teachers & students of all ages and abilities.

There are many drum books on the market, but The Drum Method by Marty truly stands out as one of the best.  It's a wonderful tool for students to develop their drumming as well as their sight reading skills.  The examples shown in the book are incredibly practical and beneficial, not only for students at all levels, but for educators as well.  Beyond the musical content and clear explanations is the fact that the book is printed on heavey paper, making it extra easy to turn pages and use.  And I feel compelled to add that the front cover picture of Marty shows him in the true light- happy, handsome and dediated to his craft. Joel Rothman, Drum Educator, Author.
