"How to Write a Fast & Easy Drum Chart is useful and uncomplicated yet musically correct. I recommend it for all drummers, whether they think they are composers or not. Because, in reality, we are!."

— Louie Bellson

"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'!"

(Jason Aldean/Sessions)

"Nothing complicated about this book. Easy to use and easy to understand. It is a great tool for teaching young musician's about musical form and the perfect guide to quick chart writing."
