As a beginner to the drums it’s always been hard to find lessons and exercises for my level of playing.  This has everything I need – thank you!  I’m really looking forward to doing my Trinity grades now!

Perfect for Beginner Drummers!

Thank you so much for all the exercises and videos – we can’t find a drum teacher where we live so this has been invaluable for us.
