Re: Beginner Drum Method Book: Wessels Book vs. Wyle Book vs Row Loff Toolbox Book
been using Wessels for 9 years, like it. but have not tried the others so can only talk Wessels. I have used an every other day, or every other week approach to sd - mallets rotation. have also used an a-b aproach rotating weekly( sd mon tues wed, mallet thur fri, then opposite next week. like this way because it reinforces what just got learned and then practiced. in a 50 min class, i have also done 20 mins on each instrument which is good to keep kids focused+ gives time to watch a Wessels video about the lesson on the Vic Firth website, which could be useful to non- percussion directors teaching.
