(Drum Instruction). Progressive Rock Drumming explores many of the techniques used by the founding prog drummers and shows how drummers can create their own drumset parts based on these techniques, while also demonstrating how multiple and very different drumset parts can be created for the same music. While this book explores some advanced techniques, it also teaches the reader how to create original and inventive drumset parts without the need to play in a demanding virtuosic style. The book addresses a wide variety of progressive rock styles, including such subgenres as symphonic, classical, fusion, neo-progressive, progressive metal, Rock In Opposition (RIO), and space rock. The package includes 55 audio examples featuring both demo and play-along tracks (with and without drums) for nine songs in various prog rock styles. The book includes charts for all of the songs that have written-out drum parts as well as condensed band parts to help one see how the drum part relates to the song, resulting in a very musical approach to progressive rock drumming.

Few aspects of daily existence are untouched by technology. Learning and teaching music are no exceptions and arguably have been impacted as much or more than other areas of life. Digital technologies have come to affect music learning and teaching in profound ways, influencing how we create, listen, share, consume, interact, and conceptualize musical practices and the musical experience. For a discipline as entrenched in tradition as music education, this has brought forth myriad views on what does and should constitute music learning and teaching. To tease out and elucidate some of the salient problems, interests, and issues, The Oxford Handbook of Technology and Music Education critically situates technology in relation to music education from a variety of perspectives: historical; philosophical; socio-cultural; pedagogical; musical; economic; policy, organized around four broad themes: Emergence and Evolution; Locations and Contexts: Social and Cultural Issues; Experiencing, Expressing, Learning and Teaching; and Competence, Credentialing, and Professional Development. Chapters from a highly diverse group of junior and senior scholars provide analyses of technology and music education through intersections of gender, theoretical perspective, geographical distribution, and relationship to the field. The Oxford Handbook of Technology and Music Education's dedication to diversity and forward-facing discussion promotes contrasting perspectives and conversational voices rather than reinforce traditional narratives and prevailing discourses.
