Daily Drum Warm-Ups and Aquarian Endorsement Deal
« on: April 16, 2010, 06:43 PM »
I'm happy to announce a new book deal with Hal Leonard. This one is going to be called Daily Drum Warm-Ups: 365 Exercises to Develop Your Technique and is a spin-off from my last book, Drum Aerobics (which should be coming out in a few months).

Also, today I was able to secure an endorsement deal with Aquarian Drumheads. This was probably based on my offerings as an educator as much or more than my gig playing. Thank you to Roy Burns for this opportunity!

NOTE: For anyone that is curious, the two books that came out of my deal with Cherry Lane Publishing (based on my self-published book, Drumscapes) over a year ago haven't come out yet. Hopefully, these two books, called Drumcraft, will be coming out this year. You have to have a lot of patience in the music industry!

Congratulations on the books Andy ... and welcome to the Aquarian family!

Be sure to tell Roy that you are active here at the Drummer Cafe; he'll dig knowing that.

I'll be sure to report about this in the next newsletter.

Thank you Todd and Bart. I did tell Roy about my relationship with Drummer Cafe. It was definitely one of the factors that helped me get the deal.

Thank for in advance for putting the announcement in the newsletter!
