The instruction itself is clear, articulate, and each lesson builds on the next. But his professionalism and obvious passion for drumming shines through every moment and is a real inspiration. This guy has not an ounce of pretension or ego - he just REALLY loves to play the drums, is completely expert yet can easily relate to the beginner. In two weeks, I was able to play right along with everything he does in the example sessions. I also have never been able to understand how to read music for tempo and rhythm, but understood it easily when he explained it, and even understood the basics of how to read drum music!
I am a 49 year old women with no previous experience, so if I can do this I would bet that anyone can. We are all born with a sense of rhythm, and if you think you don't have one you're wrong. This guy will help you rediscover it. I am actually back online right now to see if I can find any other instructional DVDs he has done.
The instructor helps you with all the basics like the best ways to position yourself on the foot pedal, how to hit your high hats, etc. It's also great that he says, you can just start with sticks and not need a drum or even a drum pad to get started.
I'm starting with Xbox 360 Drum Rocker Premium Drum Setthe nice Xbox drum set though, it's digital so I can adjust the volume and you can play it as a reg. drum or play games... but I digress... This DVD works with my new drumset and the instructor is direct to the point. He gives how-to's and shows how to perform them in a fun easy steps. I'm glad I got this as my first instructional DVD for the drums.
