The Ultimate.

Vinnie's Book is a music instruction manual unlike anything you've ever seen - a true, comprehensive study of jazz drumming. A massive 252 page volume, put together by Vinnie Ruggiero "in the interest of the real music" designed to pass on the elements so often overlooked by traditional instruction methods. This beautifully handcrafted book contains the building blocks of true mastery on the instrument. Bursting with transcriptions, compositions, "licks," and concepts, Vinnie's book takes things to the next level and beyond - highlighting touch, phrasing, mindfulness, sound, intention, and so much more!   

You have to see it and hold it to truly understand... Steeped in the tradition and the rudiments, with an emphasis on beauty and melody, this book delivers.


New Separate Volumes!

The original manuscript is two 70 page spiral bound volumes with an additional 110 loose leaf pages. The "Complete" edition is all of that material in one book. We've also made the book available in it's original (3) volume form. It's so much information that now you can break it down into more manageable pieces - if you like.

New Lower Costs!

We're so pleased to announce that we have a new print and fulfillment partner, Lulu is a fantastic company with printing presses all over the world, so - particularly for our international drumming brothers and sisters - the shipping costs are GREATLY reduced, in many cases up to $40USD!!

New Size!

You spoke, we listened. The first edition was true to the original spiral bound page size at 9 x 12, and with 250+ pages it was a bit TOO massive! So we've brought it down to the original size of the loose-leaf pages (8 1/2 x 11.)
