Part one walked you through the entire assembly and CORRECT set up. Don't depend on the limited instructions that come with the drums.
Part two of the first DVD had my 15 year-old beginner drumming like a seasoned drummer within an hour with some basic sets.
I'll update the review when she gets into the 2nd DVD (Groove Essestials) but if it produces results anywhere close to the what the first DVD provided, I wll be very pleased. Well worth the $30 investment.
very well done.
could be a little louder recording considering drummers are playing along with it.
The first hour covers the basics of properly setting up a drum kit, which is actually quite important, since physically straining to play the drums will impair learning, performance, and enjoyment.
The second hour covers how to hold and use the sticks, some basic grooves, and some fills.
Tommy Igoe is a good teacher (and of course a great drummer), and beyond covering some basics, he also imparts wisdom related to staying relaxed, how to practice, keeping time, etc.
