Our son asked about it, and his coach told him yep, this was THE ONE GUY/THE ONE resource to buy if you're going to get one!

The stars say it all. There were two books and two discs. I bought the set for my little brother. And he loves it.

Good pack of 1.0 & 2.0 including the DVD's. I found these materials good and will also assist as another tool in drum education of myself and students. I have been going through the material myself before using with students. I have quickly found that like many books and instructional programs, they can get complicated quickly. I don't know that I would feel great turning a newer student onto this material, but it certainly hits areas that others have not.

Probably the best DVD in this set is Tommy Igoe Groove Essentials 1.0 because even a beginner will get something out of it. More importantly, those of us who have been playing for years will also learn a thing or two. Igoe painstakingly discusses how parts of the 46 grooves presented in this DVD are constructed, and provides slow and fast tempo examples. The grooves presented cover rock, funk, R&B and world genres in various time signatures. That DVD along gives you a formidable arsenal of grooves that, if you diligently master them, will guarantee all the work you can handle. Add the Groove Essentials - The Play-Along 1.0 and you have a structured approach to practicing that is almost as good as having a personal instructor.

The second DVD, Tommy Igoe Groove Essentials 2.0 DVD (and associated Tommy Igoe Groove Essentials 2.0 - The Play-Along Book/CD picks up where 1.0 leaves off. It expands the total grooves to an even 100 by providing 53 new ones. Do note that the instruction is much faster paced than 1.0, and assumes you have mastered 1.0.

This DVD's theme, aside from odd time signatures, differs from 1.0 in that in the first DVD you were taught the "connective tissue" of keeping a groove - anchoring on a cymbal pattern or, perhaps, a bass drum to form the foundation of the groove. In 2.

I did a lot of research before I bought Tommy Igoe Groove Essentials for our son for Christmas, and I'm SO glad I did! He kind of turned his nose up at it UNTIL he went to his professional lessions and his coach had all the posters in his studio! Our son asked about it, and his coach told him yep, this was THE ONE GUY/THE ONE resource to buy if you're going to get one! LOL Who says "father knows best"? I looked for MONTHS! And when he came home from lessons he was pretty stoked - so I had my chance to tell him how much time I'd spent listening to different drummers on youtube and reading different reviews on Amazon, and this was the only one I'd even consider! And he gave me a big hug and said, "Thanks mom!" Then last week he started working with another professional drum teacher - someone he's wanted to work with ever since his jazz concert - where this guy filled in for one of the other bands, and GEEZE he was amazing! And he also had the Tommy Igoe materials! LOL and once again my son came home and told me and I got another hug! Wonder if he'll trust me from now on?! Naw! Probs not .... that might be asking too much!

if you're looking for drum lessons from someone who's actually going to demonstrate technique, and not just show off their amazing sets or try to blow your mind playing with no demonstration what so ever, then this is what you're looking for. Read the reviews on Amazon, then go to YouTube and listen to Tommy Igoe's Groove Essentials. You won't be unhappy whatever level you determine suits your needs!
