Book Testimonials From Drummers That Are Using Our Method

"Liz's system is presented in a concise and well organized manner.  Although every drummer has their own approach to this necessary and invaluable skill; Liz's approach is a great introduction to the steps needed to get started. The playing examples are clean and well recorded and the methodical layout of the book makes learning 'fast and easy'!

"Liz Ficalora's new book, 'How To Write a Fast And Easy Drum Chart Book 2' will help students in understanding the various parts of a tune and how they can quickly put together a chart that indicates all the basic information that they will need when performing. Most contemporary rock and pop tunes are relatively simply in design and using Liz's method will help you to get everything right the first time. This method will be especially handy for students with limited reading ability. Definitely worth checking out.

"This is an amazing book for beginners or life long drummers. It is so easy to comprehend, and it makes drumming fun and easy to learn.

Allison Arata

Tried the system yesterday and it is great! Terrific to see a visual of the whole song on one half a page. Also showed my teacher and he loved it - said it was very "clean".
I look forward to working with your approach more and may have some questions.
Thank you for taking the time to document it!!

"Your charting system is KILLER!!! It really makes it much easier to get the chart written up, and even easier to read! I've been handed 26 tunes, many of which are originals, for this new group, and I'm charting and reading faster than I ever have before!

Good for you!!! Only wish I'd thought of this myself...Ya know...Music notation pads are for "Writing Music"...but, your stuff is truly a "CHART" What is should be!

Feel free to use any or all of my note in your ads.....

All the best, Paisano!!!

" This book really opened new ways to write out the drum chart fast . "

" I ' ve saved lot's of time in sessions using this method . "

" My students have really enjoyed Liz ' s method . "

"As soon as your book arrived in the mail, I hastily tore away the package, opened the book, made some tea and dove right in. It was the most logical, straight forward method I have ever seen. It was so simple that I said to myself why I didn't I think of this?î Well, I'm grateful that you did. I was up and writing charts the very next day.
I can't tell you how much time and anxiety this is saving me. I've recently used this method for sixteen songs that a singer/songwriter hired me."

Hi Liz,

"Finding your book on Amazon was like being thrown a lifeline while sinking in quicksand!

As a new drummer, I had been trying to find country music charts in order to see "how they do it" - hard to find. Until I discovered your book, "How to Write a Fast & Easy Drum Chart". Boy, can you ever communicate in a helpful way!

I'm a retired guy who is working on a highly aspirational "Bucket List". Since November 2012, I've been working very diligently on learning how to play the drums in the context of country music. You seem to be the God-send that I've been looking for.

Thank you so much for taking the time to follow your dreams, creating the F&E Drum Chart, writing the book, and so effectively teaching me and scores of others how to play better drums."


Your latest and greatest fan,
Richard Buchanan
