Realistic Rock for Kids is a technique by drum legend Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge, Rod Stewart, Jeff Beck). Very similar to his award-winning method Realistic Rock, this book, 2 CD, and DVD kit shows kids how one can play rock ‘n’ roll drums the short and easy way. The book teaches basics such as note reading, holding the sticks, easy hand/foot coordination exercises, and more. All the exercises are performed at the accompanying CDs, and the discs also come with recordings of Carmine rockin’ out along with his band and special play-along tracks. Lastly, the DVD brings it all home and is hosted by Carmine and his star pupil, 12-year-old contest winner Pete Biggiani.
