"Liz Ficalora's new book, 'How To Write a Fast And Easy Drum Chart Book ' will help students in understanding the various parts of a tune and how they can quickly put together a chart that indicates all the basic information that they will need when performing. Most contemporary rock and pop tunes are relatively simply in design and using Liz's method will help you to get everything right the first time. This method will be especially handy for students with limited reading ability. Definitely worth checking out.

" This book really opened new ways to write out the drum chart fast . I've saved lot's of time in sessions using this method . My students have really enjoyed Liz ' s method . "
As a new drummer, I had been trying to find country music charts in order to see "how they do it" - hard to find. Until I discovered your book, "How to Write a Fast & Easy Drum Chart". Boy, can you ever communicate in a helpful way!
I'm a retired guy who is working on a highly aspirational "Bucket List". Since November 2012, I've been working very diligently on learning how to play the drums in the context of country music. You seem to be the God-send that I've been looking for.
Thank you so much for taking the time to follow your dreams, creating the F&E Drum Chart, writing the book, and so effectively teaching me and scores of others how to play better drums.
Your latest and greatest fan,
"This system of charting is very effective"
If your looking for a way to learn songs quickly with minimal hassle factor this is it... charting out your parts is a skill that WILL GET YOU GIGS!
Your method of charting is very easy to use and easier to follow than number charts.
Keepin' the Rhythm,
Your charting system is KILLER!!! It really makes it much easier to get the chart written up, and even easier to read! I've been handed 26 tunes, many of which are originals, for this new group, and I'm charting and reading faster than I ever have before!
Good for you!!! Only wish I'd thought of this myself...Ya know...Music notation pads are for "Writing Music"...but, your stuff is truly a "CHART" What is should be!
Feel free to use any or all of my note in your ads.....
All the best, Paisano!!!
