Starting in the summer term of 2015, Theo Lawrence began teaching the MYM Snare Drumline Group in Montgomeryshire (Wales, UK). The rebranded youth music group expanded to include this new group, and also the MYM Guitar & Ukulele Group, also tutored by Theo.

After 2 terms of teaching a group of pupils aged between 8 and 12, some complete beginners and some more advanced, Theo is releasing the first of many Snare Drum Sheet Music books.

The MYM Snare Drumline Group is Theo’s adaption of ‘Drumline’ groups, tribal drumming, military drumming, Drum Corps, and epic styles of film score music.

There are many areas left to explore for the drum group. In this first book, Theo has focussed on building a foundation of simple and short snare drum pieces to help give the group confidence and develop a strong sense of rhythm, timing and pulse. There is also a very small amount of dynamic use, repeats, and drum rudiments.

Demonstration of Pieces 6, 2 and 3 from the book

Here is a video of the girls in the group performing pieces (in order) 6, 2, and 3 from this snare drum book, which is an entry for the 2017 competition 'Hit Like A Girl'. The girl on your left is performing the level 2 pieces and the other 3 are playing from the level 3 book. At the time of video, 1 of the level 3 girls is studying grade 2 rockschool and the other two playing level 3 are studying grade 3 rockschool drums.

Level 1 Book

The Level 1 book is designed for complete beginners, or ‘basic beginners’ level. This level could also be played by players of other instruments that are new to drums.

Level 2 Book

Level 2 is designed for grade 1-2 level. The rhythms are more complex, but there are no buzz rolls or drags.

Level 3 Book

Created for grade 2-3 level drummers. It encorporates buzz rolls, drags, flams, and harder rhythms.

These books are primarily intended for groups of drummers or differing abilities. Teachers may print entire books for the students, or pick and choose pieces to suit them. Teachers or students may also use these sheets or books for single snare drum playing. Teachers may purchase this book online and print out unlimited copies for their students.
