Rock Solid — Drums
Camp Jamís Innovative Text for Aspiring Rock Drummers Launches Summer 2009

New York , NY — Carl Fischer Music has harnessed the expertise of drumming masters Liberty DeVitto and Sean J. Kennedy to create Rock Solid Drums (CF00001 - $19.95), an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to improving drumming and overall musicianship, and the official drum curriculum at Camp Jam locations around the country. Camp Jam is a rock music summer camp developed by professional musicians, teaching aspiring rockers of all ages how to play and perform like the pros. Their official drumming textbook, Rock Solid Drums, is chock-full of essential topics such as drum rudiments, effective listening, reading music, improving coordination, and also includes a CD of play-along tracks with over five hours of music, tips, and suggestions, performed by Liberty DeVitto and Sean Kennedy. The Rock Solid Drums technique will put drummers on the fast track to stage-ready stardom!

Bernard Purdie, drummer with with Aretha Franklin, James Brown, B.B. King, Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, and more, raves, "Mastering the content of this excellent book is something that every drummer should strive for!" Ray Luzier, drummer for KoRn, Army of Anyone, David Lee Roth and former instructor at Musicians Institute (P.I.T.), names Rock Solid Drums as “an essential tool for broadening your craft and strengthening your drumming vocabulary so that you can become the future working, in-demand, professional drumset player that you want to be!”

For more than 30 years, Liberty DeVitto provided the rhythmic framework for the music of Billy Joel, helping to create his multi-platinum hit albums and legendary live concerts. DeVitto has also performed with artists such as Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Stevie Nicks, Chuck Berry, and Elton John. Currently, DeVitto leads popular master classes at Camp Jam, and also conducts drum clinics around the world for Mapex Drums, Sabian Cymbals, Pro-Mark Drumsticks, and Evans Drum Heads.

A renowned teacher and performer, Philadelphia-area drummer Sean J. Kennedy conducts master classes and clinics throughout the Mid Atlantic region and New England. Lost World Music recently signed Kennedy's quartet and produced his second album Queen Anne's Revenge, which features Grammy-winning artists Bob Mintzer and Liberty DeVitto.
