Taking the Mystery Out of Interpreting Drum Charts – with Kevin Gianino

About this Webinar –

Because there is no standard way to notate a drum set chart, students and band directors are regularly challenged with interpreting charts with not enough information, too much information, or written with clutter. Musician/educator Kevin Gianino demonstrates and explains how to solve the problem.  Watch this webinar and “solve the mystery” of drum charts.
