Trinity College London:Raise the Bar Drum Kit


The Raise the Bar series from Trinity College London Press has expanded, with books for drum kit having just been added.

Following the successful format of previous books, the Raise the Bar: Drum Kit books showcase repertoire from past Trinity exam syllabuses. Available in three volumes – Grades 1–2, 3–5, and 6–8 – the books cover a range of styles and genres and features engaging pieces pitched at a specific difficulty level. They also feature teaching notes by James Sedge and Chris Walters, and a selection of pieces are accompanied by free, downloadable demo and/or backing tracks. 

‘We’re really pleased to now be able to serve drum kit teachers and learners with our Raise the Bar series. We design the books to be used either when preparing for exams, or simply for pleasure, and we hope that drummers will find the books as useful as other instrumentalists have – Ulrike Lucht-Lorenz, Trinity College London Press’ Head of Music Publishing.
