Below are the backing tracks for my primary-level drum & tuned percussion book. There's one track for each of the 45 glockenspiel tunes PLUS tracks for the drums solos in the back of the book AND drumming-practice loops to be used with the drum exercises from page 8 onwards.

Click each link to play or save the audio file accompaniments, then either:
1) Play along to them from your computer
2) Burn ALL the tracks to C.D. for playback on a Stereo/Hi-Fi system (this makes the tracks louder)
3) Save them ALL to your iPod or media player. Listen back to the tracks through your headphones - play along with the track you're working on for practice!

DRUMMING PRACTICE - USING THE MUSICAL 'PRACTICE LOOPS'

First, try using the practice loops on the 'PRACTICE LOOPS 4 DRUMMING' page on this site:
www.drum-ideas.com/page5.htm
Read the notes on how to do this first at the top of that page

Alternatively, you can drum along to ANY of the tunes above (tracks 1 to 45) while practicing ANY of the drum work from this book!

Musicians also practice along to a METRONOME - it keeps a steady beat at a variety of tempos. Here's one on-line:
www.metronomeonline.com/

Also try some drumming practice without the aid of loops/tracks/metronome - unaccompanied practice
