Training Aids

Books, training aids and full syllabi in a variety of topics for young people, teachers and organisations.



One8e Publishing was founded in 2007 by author Dave Hazlewood as a way to produce drum teaching material but has gone on to produce a variety of books, videos and training aids for both music and military purposes.

Everything is dealt with in house including research, photography, design, layout, writing and publication.

The Author

Dave Hazlewood is a professional rock drummer and a Captain in the Army Cadet Force (ACF) and creates training material in both fields. Having founded and run a music school for 20 years and toured extensively worldwide, his Backbone Drums syllabus has been well recieved by teachers and students all over the world.  

Management, leadership and military instructor training received as part of his ACF experience have all played a part in developing the quality of all material produced and his Army Cadet titles have been extremely popular with both cadets and instructors.

The core of what we do is create books. From researching material, gathering images and writing through to design and layout, everything is taken care of. 

Previous titles have been focussed on either drumming or Army Cadets, but we are happy to tackle other subjects so please contact us if you have a project you would like us to get involved with.

Training Aids

To back up written material, we have produced various training aids that add a lot of interest, enjoymant and clarity to learning and developing new skills. 

Backbone drums is backed up by a whole array of drumless backing tracks that are available free to download with books or stream via Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube etc. 

For Army Cadet training, a series of videos and Powerpoint presentations have been produced. Many of these are available to view for free on our Youtube Channel

Other items include themed playing cards and poster packs.
