standardised drumset notation key
On many of our Drum Lessons pages you will notice drum music notated. All of our drum tutors and contributors use what is increasingly being regarded as the standardised system of drum kit notation, as outlined by Norman Weinberg
in his Guide To Standardised Drum set
Notation. This book is published by the Percussive Arts Society, and is available from their website, www.pas.org. To gain a full understanding of all aspects of this drum kit notation system, we recommend you check out Weinberg’s book. A brief key to the notes and how they relate to the different instruments of the drum set is provided above.
