Skillz Drum Coach
What makes our Online Drum Lessons different
Feature #1 – Save lots of time using our Ultra Short Video method
You get the best possible view of all the lessons in the shortest possible amount of time.
No long form video content with more talking than actual playing to score points with YouTube which costs you time.
I’ll personally show you how to play something. You’ll have the short description and the notes to follow along. If something needs to be said about the what, how, where, when and why you’ll hear it. If not, practice what’s being shown without asking too many questions right now. Trust me, they will all get answered, just not right now.
With our Online Drum Lessons you get better as quickly as possible. Doesn’t this sound better than watching someone play something you’d like to?
Feature #2 – Learn how to get creative using our Lessons and Combinations
Our Online Drum Lessons will get your creative juices flowing. Practice the groove, then the fill, and then proceed with Part T to get more ideas on what to do with them.
Even if you don’t think of yourself as being a creative person, we’ll make you get in the habit of coming up with variations yourself.
Feature #3 – Gain perspective by studying the CORE and Systems of drumming
CORE stands for Categories Of Rhythmic Elements which forms the heart of the Skillz Drumming Method. Currently we have 24 categories which we use to create structure and clarity.
We believe these are omnipresent in everything we as drummers play, hear, think and feel.
All of our Books are based on this principle and so are our Online Lessons. The format of video just adds to the clarity between all the different parts in our method. This makes our online drum lessons at Skillz Drum Coach a perfect addition to your Skillz Drum Books.
Feature #4 – Save lots of time by using our Practice Perfect Method
Our Practice Perfect Method stands for the right division of your practicing time. Each Lesson is divided into Groove, Fill, Tips, Exercises, Audio and MIDI. These will be combined so you automatically start merging the different areas of your drum studies into one.
Feature #5 – Get unlimited ideas from Rudiments of drumming
You’ll get access to video, notes and description of all rudiments in the following categories.
#1 40 PAS Rudiments – The forty most commonly known rudiments certified by the Percussive Arts Society (P.A.S.)
#2 Additions and variations – Here we get more creative with the 40 PAS Rudiments. Who said practicing rudiments head to be boring?
#3 Rudiments on the drums – The 40 PAS Rudiments and its Additions and Variations applied to the drum set. Get a ton more ideas on how to apply rudiments to the kit.
#4 Drum set rudiments – As drummers we use not two but four limbs. This calls for a totally different approach to rudiments. That’s why we introduce the Skillz Drum set Rudiments.
#5 Quintuplet Rudiments – If you want to experience something different why not try our Quintuplet Rudiments? If you buy Sub 5 you get access to its corresponding Online Drum Lessons, MIDI and Rudiments.
If you buy one of our Level 2 Books, you’ll get one year of access to our additional specific rudiments for that particular subject.
You simply can’t get more into detail about rudiments for drum set players than this.
The best Online Drum Lessons based on the material presented in Level 1 and Level 2.
Perspective of a pro
Our Online Drum Lessons are every bit as structured as our books are. They add a more practical quality to the material in the books. This is sort of a ninth part of the book tying it all together. All of this brings you the perspective you would normally have only after decades of playing.
But we’ll go further. You’ll get the tools to combine things, play variations on things, and even make additions on existing material. This will give you infinite rhythmic and musical possibilities.
Keep it simple
The key of learning is to keep things as simple as possible. We will not bullshit you and say it’s gonna be easy. Anything worthwile is gonna take a lot of effort. But we will help you through all the difficult moments by not making it any harder than it should be.
Learn how to improvise and create
New ideas will emerge from your better understanding of rhythm. So will your ability to improvise and be creative. This is the ultimate goal which can be reached by anyone, as long as the right material and the energy to study it is present.
Not clear? Hit the Panic Button
Anything not clear and you’re stuck in a lesson? This means we have to explain it better to you, and possibly to others. Help us get better by hitting the Panic Button under “My SDL” and we’ll get back to you a.s.a.p. This way you can help us get better and better.
