How To Play Drums By Ear - DVD 01
Do you want to learn how to play the drums entirely by ear? This DVD covers all the essentials to get you playing for the very first time. Absolutely no sheet music reading ability is required. Everything is taught by ear.
All topics include: getting started, drum kit setup, drum set posture, drumstick grip, basic pedal technique, basic drum beats, drum beat variations, first drum fills, using a metronome, and playing with a song.
How To Practice Efficiently - DVD 02
Practicing is an essential part of learning to play the drums. However, learning to practice efficiently is what can make the biggest difference in your overall progress. This DVD focuses on providing you with the information you need to create a balanced practice routine.
It works hand-in-hand with the Practice Routine Generator (included in Workbook 5), and covers topics like: why we practice, practicing tips and tricks, structuring practices, the casual schedule, the motivated schedule, the dedicated schedule, and motivation for practice.
Drum Theory & Notation - DVD 03
Many drummers are intimidated by the concept of learning to read and write drum notation. This is due to the fact that drum theory is often seen as being very complicated and challenging.
In this DVD, Mike makes learning theory and notation easy by breaking things down into simple steps. You'll learn how to read and write basic drum beats, and then move on to more complicated patterns. It's all designed in a progressive way to make things fun. You are sure to have "ahh, I get it" moments where you begin to understand music on a whole new level!
Hand Technique - DVD 04
Do you want to learn exactly how to hold the drumsticks for maximum speed, power, control, and endurance? In this DVD, Mike will show you exactly how to get the most out of every single stroke you play.
This is probably one of the most under-rated aspects of playing the drums, because it affects so much that you are able to play. Proper hand technique can completely change the way you play. You'll learn all the variations on matched grip, traditional grip, and finger control technique to ensure your hands don't hold back your drumming potential!
Drum Rudiments - DVD 05
The drum rudiments are the building blocks to everything we play on the drums. Think of them as the letters that make up all the words (beats and fills) that we can play on the drums. Literally every pattern that has ever been played on the drums is made up of these core patterns.
This DVD teaches you all forty drum rudiments from these five categories: single strokes, drum rolls, paradiddles, flam-based, and drag-based.
After you learn the 40 patterns, Mike demonstrates how to incorporate the six most popular rudiment patterns within your everyday drumming.
