From Ragtime to Rock is an educational DVD from award-winning drummer, author, and educator Daniel Glass.

A great history lesson in music.
The Century Project 100 Years of American Music From Behind The Drums Documentary & From Ragtime to Rock are two amazing Documentaries and definitely the best about drums. So much history. Have you seen Traps?
This one looks good too. After I watch the history of Jazz and The History of the Drumset, I’ll be getting this one.
Thanks for the comment. Yes From Ragtime To Rock is another good documentary.
