“There is much within The Drum Tutor which will shed light on how we play snare drums.“


Co-Editors, Robin Engelman and Gordon Stout


The Drum Tutor, written by Warren Benson in his early years of teaching, captures essential techniques for percussion instruments, particularly the snare drum. Benson considered the snare drum the most useful instrument for beginner’s technique and ensemble playing.

Editor Robin Engelman

Editor Gordon Stout

Edited by two of Benson’s former students, Robin Engelman and Gordon Stout, who continue to use these methods in their playing and teaching, The Drum Tutor documents Benson’s unique ideas and passion for “the Rudiments of Playing, not the Playing of the Rudiments.”
