Hand Drum Rhythms Book | Percussion | Notation | Explanation | Photography | Travel | World-Famous Teachers
Materials: Fine paper, WireO binding, Lamination
NEW EDITION of beautiful custom-designed artist book of rhythms for hand drums including darbuka (doumbek), frame drums, riq (Middle-Eastern tambourine), tamburello, and djembe, written in notation that's easy to learn and follow.
Rhythms progress from the easiest to the more complex, as taught by 16 of the world's top percussion performers and teachers: Yshai Afterman (Israel), Barbara Allen (USA), Casey Bond (USA), Brian T. Carter (USA), April Centrone (USA), Raquy Danziger (Turkey), River Guerguerian (USA), Matt Kilmer USA), David Kuckhermann (Germany), Marla Leigh (USA), Andrea Piccioni (Italy), Scott Robinson (USA), Miranda Rondeau (USA), Shane Shanahan (USA), Yousif Sheronick (USA), and Glen Velez (USA). Included are rhythms from the Middle East, Turkey, Italy, China, and the USA — some well-known favorites and some originals by the artists.
Written and designed by award-winning graphic designer (and perpetual percussion student) Ellen Shapiro, this is the ideal tool for inspiration, practice, leading or playing in drum circles, teaching, soloing, and improvisation. Each rhythm is accompanied by notes provided by the composer and original photography by Ellen and others.
The large, clear notation is easy to understand and read (including in low-light conditions). No need to be able to read music! The sturdy cover makes this book ideal to take to the drum circle, the beach, music jams, community gatherings, etc. And of course for learning, practice at home by yourself and with musical friends or family members.
54 pages + laminated cover, wire-o bound; page size = 7.5 x 7.5".
Perfect gift for any percussion student at any level; to accompany a hand drum sold on Etsy; or why not for yourself? Studies have shown that drumming is a powerful therapeutic tool for stress reduction and that is boosts the immune system.

This book is really special. Not only did it come signed by the author, it’s packed full of todays teachers and drum styles. I am so excited by this purchase. I received way more that what I thought I was getting. Definitely worth every penny, get it while you can, a must for any drummers collection✨🙌🏼✨
Ellen Shapiro has created an elegant “vade mecum” for the hand drum enthusiast. Photographer, graphic artist and accomplished drummer, she is uniquely qualified to create this book. I value it for the thoughtful profiles Ellen has composed of over a dozen contemporary drum teachers and performers. And for each of these she has included a diagram that shows clearly how to play one of that artist’s distinctive beats. It’s a beautifully produced portable inspiration for anyone interested in hand drumming.
Spiral binding makes it easy to lay flat while I practice, and the drum rhythms are clearly written
