Peter Erskine is internationally renowned for his drumming skills, and equally admired for his teaching abilities. The Drum Perspective draws upon Erskine's wealth of knowledge and experience to illuminate the mystery of making music that is aesthetically satisfying to listener and musician alike. The Drum Perspective is like a series of private lessons that can be enjoyed anywhere, at any time. Not just for drummers, it is also designed for other instrumentalists and vocalists who work with drummers. The CD includes tracks representing some of Erskine's best work, and the book includes transcriptions and charts of many of the performances, plus specific exercises to enhance a drummer's ability, creativity and awareness.
