Aquarian artist Andy Ziker has just released a drum instruction book called “Drum Aerobics” under Hal Leonard Publishing. The book is a 52-week, one-exercise-per-day workout program for developing, improving, and maintaining drum technique. Players of all levels – beginner to advanced – will increase their speed, coordination, dexterity and accuracy. The two CDs contain all 365 workout licks, plus play-along grooves in styles including rock, blues, jazz, heavy metal, reggae, funk, calypso, bossa nova, march, mambo, New Orleans 2nd Line, and lots more!
