The origin of playing brushes on the drum is shrouded in mystery and Brushworks is an innovative study of the art of playing the drum with brushes and how to master this style of playing.

Called "genius" by legendary drummer Max Roach, Clayton Cameron has compiled, written and illustrated the most comprehensive material on the subject ever devised. It is the first book to develop a system of notation for brushstrokes and brush-effects that stays within the traditional system and is easy to comprehend.

Clayton, or the "Brush Master" as he is also known, plays on the included CD providing the student not only an aural connection to the materials in the book, but an opportunity to hear, the unparalleled magic of his playing.
