International Drumming

How many kinds of drums are there in the world?   Does anyone really know?  The good news is that at least some of them have method books, and Stanton’s has or can get those method books.  The cajon is a box with some snares set against the inside of one wall of it. The player sits on the cajon, and plays it bare-handed, slapping and tapping. “Getting Started on Cajon”  can get a beginner going.  This is a package that includes a book and a DVD.  Often, a picture is worth a thousand words.  “First Lessons Conga”  includes a CD.  Pictures of the various playing techniques are in the book, and the CD lets the player hear the rhythms as they should be played.  Instructions for playing the claves are included because there are pieces in this book of sheet music for conga that both instruments can play together.  “First Lessons Bongo” includes a CD that helps the the bongo player with the rhythms presented, and pictures to help learn the drumming techniques for this “drum” that is two drums of different  sizes.  For more information about these drum books or others, call us at 1-800-42-MUSIC, email us at keyboard@atantons.com, or visit our website, http://www.stantons.com.Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
