Level 2 specific Frequently Asked Questions
These are some specifical Frequently Asked Questions about Level 2. If you have a question about something else please refer to our main FAQ section where all are bundled.
Do I need to buy and study Level 1 first?
No you don’t. All Level 2 publications can be used as stand alone learning material. But if you’re serious about drumming and rhythm we recommend getting Level 1. This gives you the best structural overview of rhythm possible. As such it will save you an incredible amount of time. Don’t try to reinvent the wheels of rhythm. Explore new territory with them.
Are the books in Level 2 updated annually as well?
Yes they will be. If there’s sufficient reason to do so. If we can upgrade it substantially we will. But if it ain’t broken we won’t try to fix it. We’ll fix other things first, or create more new material preferably.
Can I make suggestions for Level 2 books as well?
Yes please do! Go here and let us know how you think we can make it better. Be sure to specify the exact location and problem you have. If you have a solution for it: great! If you don’t, no problem, we’ll figure it out. That’s what we do.
Do I need to get a Premium Membership to study a Level 2 book?
No you don’t. The material in the books by itself is more than enough to get you going. But if you want to get the most out of your practicing time we recommend it though. If you can afford it, you’ll benefit from our 10000’s hours of experience and research. So why wouldn’t you?
Should I study volumes in Level 2 chronologically?
Absolutely not. This is up to your personal preference. If you like double bass drumming we suggest you get that particular volume a.s.a.p. If you don’t we suggest you don’t touch it with a 10 foot drumstick.
Can I try before I buy?
Absolutely! You can view and try the excerpts from a specific book at its designated page. We’ll try to get it up as soon as the book is ready and published. If you like it you can buy and download it instantly. You can also download Level 1 Trial Version and start to use it right away.
