Although it is highly recommended to study both the DVD and the CD, it is possible to complete the program using only the DVD. The material covered in this series is progressive. It will be most productive to practice and accomplish each DVD’s material before going on to the next DVD.
For beginners wishing to purchase drums for practicing with this instructional DVD set:
Layne recommends the Lotus Tambourine since it is the lightest and easiest of her tambourines to start with. For standing position Tar, the inexpensive 14″ Remo Frame Drum is recommended since it is the lightest of the available drums. This drum can be used for sitting position as well. However, the 16″ Fixed Skyndeep Snake Skin head or the TAR 18″ Fixed Skyndeep Goat Brown head are better drums and would also be good choices for sitting position.
