Ok truth be told I have been playing drums since I was 10. This app is perfectly fine for beginners but if you are anymore advanced than the basic elementary school book or in a middle school jazz band then you are probably too advanced for this. I understand it is for set I am a Louise Armstrong award winner for the area of percussion. So I can appreciate the basic approach to this. But I think that it is better for said person who may be learning to get a basic understanding of rhythm first. That means get a practice pad or snare and a beginning book and learn how to count to 4 first.
