Realistic Rock for Kids is a method by drum legend Carmine Appice. Similar to his award-winning method Realistic Rock, this book shows kids how to play rock 'n' roll drums the quick and easy way. It teaches basics such as note reading, holding the sticks, simple hand/foot coordination exercises, and more. All of the exercises are performed on the online audio tracks. The online audio also include tracks of Carmine rockin' out to some great songs with his band. You can hear how he puts it all together then play along with special remixed drumless versions.
Audio is accessed online using the unique code inside the book and can be streamed or downloaded. The audio files include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right.
