This DVD/Book combo is the best product I have seen in the market to learn about hand drumming. It is fun, interactive and really easy to follow, and you don't need to have any previous knowledge about music.

I totally recommend it to everybody who wants to learn hand drumming in a fun and interactive way.

Besides you can use this product with your family and friends, a really cool way to spend time together, and do something different that everybody can enjoy, no matter what age they are.

Give it a try, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!

I've never been a drummer nor particularly musical but once I took a class from Jill I knew I'd found something surprisingly liberating and exciting. This book/DVD combo is a fantastic opportunity to have fun in a new kind of way. At this price it also makes a memorable and affordable gift for someone. Jill has brought together musicianship, psychological health, and community building in a completely accessible way. Quite a package that should be in every family's library.

I bought this DVD for my family who want to begin hand drumming. I rented it first from Netflix and found it was easy to follow and covered the basics of hand drumming pretty thoroughly and was fun to play along with. We bought it and have used it to begin our own little drum circle. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that is didn't give me quite enough info on picking a good drum for a beginner. She does cover the different types (i.e. wood or synthetic, real skin or synthetic heads, etc) and talks a little about the differences but being true beginners it would have been nice to have a little bit more recommendation on which is the easiest for beginners to start with. The DVD is easy to navigate through and find specific lessons you want to play. The instructor is pleasant and easy to follow. My 3 year old likes to play along with the exercises as well.

Okay okay so it's pretty dated, and the teacher and her friends are a little bit hippie, but the lessons are solid. She walks you through hand drums and other percussion methods that sound great together. The video finishes up with a nice jamming session.

My son and daughter (2 and 4) have bongos and sat through the entire video and played along. Dated or not, that's a huge accomplishment for kids so young. They were mesmerized by such a sweet and soft-spoken teacher. All around great buy!

Jill Sager is an extremely accomplished musician that does not let this fact get in the way of teaching novices or assisting the drummer who has made some progress accomplish more.
Some drumming videos focus too much on technique (IMHO). While technique is very important it can be laborious without being augmented by the real fun of actual playing. Jill strikes a wise balance between the two crafts.
This video will give you the fundamentals of basic African and Cuban drumming whereas some videos only give one or the other. The video also includes a booklet that augments and integrates well with the DVD. This is the original hand drumming video. There have been others that have copied it, but the first may be the best, ever!
