Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982112661, Spiral-bound)

What does arithmetic have to do with snare drum rudiments? What does mathematics have to do with rhythm? At a fundamental level, the answer to both questions is: everything. This book will explain it to you and then show you how to apply the knowledge creatively in your own performing and composing. Whether you are playing rudimental solos, orchestral excerpts, drum set grooves, multiple percussion pieces, or even keyboard repertoire, the ideas in Rudimental Arithmetic will expand your conceptual options and increase your technical fluency. Some of the areas covered in detail include sticking patterns and permutations, meter and grouping, partitions of numbers, and polyrhythms. The book also includes over thirty pages of exercises and eight very challenging solo etudes.
