Alfred Music Publishing, home to the world’s largest percussion print music catalog,
releases The Complete Guide to Playing Brushes, an instructional method book by
Florian Alexandru-Zorn.

The Complete Guide to Playing Brushes is a comprehensive study for playing with
brushes on the drumset. The book contains proper drum notation with detailed
illustrations on every exercise eliminating the guesswork of brush movement in a
clear, concise method. Beginning to advanced players will equally benefit from this
course with topics including rudiments, sweeping motions, exercises in straight and
odd times, and grooves for genres such as jazz, Latin, funk, and rock.

To help foster proper brush technique, the included DVD features all of the book’s
exercises for playing-along. Every lesson is recorded in split screen with two
camera angles (front and overhead perspectives), yielding a complete performance
display.

“Florian has produced an up-to-date, modern text on the wonderful art of playing
with brushes,” said jazz drummer and clinician Steve Smith. “The instruction is
clear, concise, and helpful for drummers looking to expand their palette to include
the expressive world of brush playing,”

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving our environment, this book is
printed on 100\% recycled paper stock.

The Complete Guide to Playing Brushes book and DVD set (00-20134US) is now available
for $29.99 at music retail stores and at alfred.com/drums.
