Extra backing tracks:

To compliment the array of backing tracks available with the Backbone Drums series of books and those available to buy or download separately, we regularly add extra tracks for you to download free of charge. Throughout the syllabus we cover most styles of music and create tracks at lots of different tempos, but here we can add more variations to cover all requirements. Need a specific backing track? Send us a request and where possible, we will create it.


Available to teachers using the Backbone Drums syllabus are tutorials on all aspects. There are tutorials on how to use the accounting documents and also on how to get the best results from using our books with students. Contact us if you need help on any aspect not covered.
