More about the “How To Play Drums” program

Here are a few of the strategies for accelerating your training that these ebooks include:

Four common ‘feels’ of music
drum lessons 1002These four ‘feels’ cover almost all existing territory in music.   While most other books in the drumming world provide exercises mostly in the 16th note feel and sometimes include 8th triplets, this program prioritizes covering all four categories of ‘feel’ throughout the book:   16th notes, 8th triplets, 6/8 time, and 16th triplets.   (The exercises and sections in this training program are color coded to distinguish between these feels.)

Important grooves
A beginner or intermediate drummer should be learning all the common grooves that are usually expected of most drummers.   There are grooves in this section in all four common feels and in many styles of music.   These are some of the most important grooves for drummers to know!   They are also fun, practical for real-world settings, and range from easy to difficult.

Coordination training for grooves
Often, method books expect students to build their coordination using challenging grooves.   This is very impractical, because grooves are usually long patterns and your body prefers to build coordination skills in a much simpler way.   Cross-training with the short patterns in this book (coordination ‘rudiments’) is a MUCH FASTER approach to building these skills!   After a few of these exercises, learning new grooves becomes much easier and more fun!
