This site primarily contains a bunch of free resources for drummers and drum teachers, as well as information about the two drum books written by Dan Slater. These two books are highly acclaimed, containing music which has been selected for study in ANZCA and VCE music exams. After running a successful drum teaching business for 10 years, Dan now teaches classroom Performing Arts and tutors in Masters/Bachelor level Education degrees.

My recommendation is to purchase CDMS and SOTS through the fantastic (and very supportive) online/physical retailers Engadine Music, Optimum Percussion or Five Star Music. For wholesale inquiries (including discounted ‘teacher pricing’), email Dan at

Use the above menu to access videos and backing tracks of the songs in both books.
