"Other books that I have studied do not begin to compare with Jim McCall's books. I wish I had known about
them before I wasted time and money on others." M. Low, California
Jim McCall's Ultimate Drumming books are excellent. I have used other method books but I consider these superior to them. I especially like the ones with the CD's and DVD." M.E. Wray, Tennesse
Jim McCall's Ultimate Drumming books are the best. As a long time drummer I have tried other books but these are the best. Learning to read music has never been easier." Jamie P., Washington D.C.
"I having been taking drum lessons from Jim McCall for about two years and have been using his books. Although
I have other books I really like Jim's books because they flow very progressively and are comprehensive. The books establish skills from the basics and build from there." Sherry C. Nevada
"My son started taking lessons and using Jim's books about 2 years ago. He had never played any other instruments before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Turns out, he loves playing because Jim's books are easy to follow and are not overwhelming. He is turning into a really good drummer and gets compliments every time he plays a solo at school or with his band. I highly recommend Jim McCall and his teaching methods." Mike, Nevada
