This section is designed to introduce you to the Drum Rudiment System, improve your hand technique, and introduce you to all forty drum rudiments. Lionel starts out by giving you special practice tips and tricks that will enable you to move through the contents of the training modules with greater ease. Then, he gives detailed information about stick grips to be sure you are playing with the best technique. Finally, he goes through the basics of all 40 rudiments.
Each individual drum rudiment is first demonstrated on the practice pad. This is where Lionel explains each pattern in great detail, so you can understand exactly how to play the rudiments like they were meant to be played. Next, you get the opportunity to see the pattern played from three separate camera angles in slow motion. This helps you memorize the sound of the pattern, so it comes more naturally for you in practice. Finally, Lionel takes each rudiment to the drum set to demonstrate it on the snare drum, within two beginner drum beats, and within two beginner drum fills. All of these examples are demonstrated with four camera angles, sheet music on-screen, and at regular and slow-motion speeds.
As a special bonus, Lionel has also included some excellent drum warm-ups, practice tips, and footage of some of his creative snare-drum solos at the end of the beginner module. In total, this section includes 5 hours of video content and 45+ pages of detailed training material in the spiral-bound workbook.
The intermediate section is designed to take everything a step further. It is jam packed with more tips and tricks, and all-new new applications!
You'll learn about "the motions" and how they are to be incorporated into the rudiments to improve your overall speed and control. You'll also get some more information about stick grips, and some unique exercises to improve your accents and flam strokes. This invaluable information is what sets Lionel apart from other drummers, and he freely passes on all of his secrets in these revealing lessons.
When you are ready to learn more beats and fills, you can jump to the intermediate applications. Lionel revisits all 40 drum rudiments, giving you two new intermediate drum beats, and two new intermediate drum fills based on each rudiment. These patterns include the same special playback features as the applications in the beginner section. This means, all examples are shown from four separate camera angles, with sheet music on-screen, and playback at regular and slow-motion speeds. As the patterns become more complex, this unique training system becomes more and more valuable.
The modules include some bonus content including a special look at the "towel technique", and another creative snare-drum solo from Lionel Duperron. In total, the intermediate section includes over 4 and a half hours of video content and 65+ pages of training material in the spiral-bound workbook.
The advanced section really takes the drum rudiments to a whole new level. This material is designed for motivated drummers that really want to push the envelope, and take their drumming to the extreme limits of what can be played.
Lionel starts by reviewing stick grip and finger techniques with some fresh insights into how you can continue to improve upon these important fundamentals. As with the tips in the intermediate section, this material is extremely valuable. Lionel has done a superb job of compiling valuable insights to deliver such a comprehensive training package.
As with the previous sections, the advanced pack also includes all-new applications based around the rudiments. You will find two advanced drum beats, and two advanced drum fills for each and every drum rudiment. Some of these are extremely challenging, and are sure to push your drumming to the limits. As expected, these video lessons also make use of the unique multi-angle training system that makes learning easy.
The training videos also feature additional bonus material including some special exercises, drum set solos, drum set & cymbal advice, an overview of drumsticks and practice pads, and a special in-studio interview with Lionel. All together, the advanced section includes over 4 hours of video content and 65+ pages of training material in the workbook.
The new Drum Rudiment System Expansion Pack is also included. It covers many related topics that compliment the material included in the Drum Rudiment System.
Modified Hybrid Rudiments - Over 120 modified hybrid rudiments that will expand your library of beats and fills even further! This rudiment pack will show you a variety of rudiments that build on top of the original 40. Lionel also talks about mixing the hybrid rudiments with the standard 40 to come up with thousands of unique patterns.

Lionel Duperron is a focused musician and an extremely affable and knowledgeable teacher with over 25 years of professional experience, Lionel Duperron is as passionate about teaching as he’s dedicated. Proficient with every genre of drumming, he achieved worldwide acclaim with his fresh approach to teaching rudiments musically on FreeDrumLessons.com and DrumLessons.com, as well as with two popular instructional programs: the “Drum Fill System” and the “Drum Rudiment System”.
I have waited to have rudiments taught to me in the simplest of ways. Here, I get to see many different aspects to each rudiment. I may need one rudiment explained visually on sheet music and another one explained in slow mo; here I get that advantage.
It's amazing to see when I went back to work on, say, the first 5 rudiments. When I had to pull of a basic fill in my last gig (last night,) I found myself pulling off a really cool double stroke roll that even my band mates notice was new and cleaner then ever before. That came totally naturally and had to be a direct result in working on my rudiments from this package. It had to be!
The Drum Rudiiment System is great. I like the four screen method of teaching as you can see it from all perspectives, which has helped me. I also like the method of showing the beat at a slower temp, then picking up the tempo to the proper pace.
Without a doubt the Drum Rudiment System has helped me. I have found that I am able to play many of the rudiments much faster, and have learned more rudiments that I did not know before.
Lionel takes the ordinarily tedious routine of practicing rudiments and makes it stimulating. His approach to teaching is not only informative but inspirational.
The great thing about the Drum Rudiment System is that it allows students to realize the potential of knowing rudiments. Lionel makes if fun and creative by applying rudiments to grooves and fills around the set.
Within a couple of months of using the Drum Rudiment System I've noticed a rejuvenated interest in practice. I've also been able to swallow "the bitter pill" of rudiment practice a lot easier. The Drum Rudiment System is "the sugar that makes the medicine go down"!
Excellent presentation both in content and delivery. I got the distinct impression that Lionel really cares about his students learning what he is sharing when speaking to the camera. Too many DVD instructors are busy being overly flashy and full of themselves, while promoting their current personal project when they should be teaching; but with Lionel, it is obviously that for him, it is about his students and their development!
The key thing for students of rock drumming is understanding how to apply the standard rudiments to the full kit. Too often beginning and advanced rock drummers ignore the essence of drumming, which is embodied in the rudiments, because they, or their teacher, has failed to make the connection from rudiments played solely on the snare drum, and bridging those skills and concepts to the full rock drum set; so those types of drummers never progress to their true potential; however Lionel does this most important thing quite well.
Being a full time instructor and the director of a music school, I wholeheartedly endorse Lionel Duperron's Drum Rudiment System DVD for our drum students, as essential reinforcing educational material for use at home, for both motivation and practice. Obviously, if I recommend it it to our own students here at Hunts Annex Studios, I would recommend it for anyone serious about mastering drumming who is working without an instructor and at home.
Lionel's style is straightforward and easy to follow. He explains things completely and demonstrates techniques in simple concise steps. His exercises are challenging but very effective. This packet is also a very good tool if you are a drum teacher. The videos are interesting and effective.
The System has been helpf,ul in increasing my speed and technique. In addition I have developed new breaks and additional beats that are great for use when performing. I would recommend this set to any serious drummer.
As a beginner drummer who started e-drums at age 55, Lionel shows me the true basics of the drum rudiment with an easy-to-understand video on how to do it. With this system you can repeat each segment until you feel comfortable with it. I cannot wait to go through each section and truly master the beginner basics of drum rudimentation. Then I can move onto the Intermediate section!
Once you do the Beginner part of it you can migrate forward to the Intermediate then Advanced sections of the DVDs. I have not graduated to either section as yet, but plan to be more of a true drummer at that time. That is what will happen when you master this, you will be a true drummer at that time and at any time you feel you need a refresher, pick up the DVD and go right to what you want to.
I personally like the way the instructions are filmed using a variety of speeds and angles. That combined with Mr. Duperron's patient, reassuring, a detailed instructions allows the student to perform better and retain more; nice job!!!
One aspect of my drumming that I have noticed significant improvement in since I've started the system, is the sticking speed in which I can perform; the movements are faster and more fluid; The Drum Rudiment System has definitely expanded my playing ability!!!
The Drum Rudiment System has an easily accessible menu index and great,multiple camera angles for instant viewing and learning. Lionel has a soothing voice and easy delivery which I find very inspiring and motivating.
The highlight of this system has been correctly practicing the rudiments on the pad, and then hitting the kit and noticing how much better and more interesting my playing has become. My favorite lessons were the diddles and drags.
I'm becoming more relaxed and confident that I can learn how to play this instrument. I'm learning how to execute many ideas in my head, and pick up licks,etc from more advanced drummers. But most of all, at age 63 and retired, I'm having "BIG FUN" ! Thank You All!!
I like the way the camera angles and different views are shown.. the music notes are shown and in several speeds. I enjoyed the way he presented the program and spoke to you, it was like your own private lesson with Lionel.
It has made me a better all around drummer. Listening and watching him improved me right off the start.. and the program is something you can go back to time after time to refresh and get a groove down perfect.. You can hear someone tell you.. but watching it and following it, is the best way ... its like... "in your face"
Lionel Duperron's teaching style is easy to follow and very clear. The step process throught the rudiments and how they apply to fills is great...
The rudiments helped me understand the differerent sticking patterens that the pros use. The first set of lessons that he takes to the kit are great becauce it put it all together what we learned before.
The sticking patterns that the Rudiment system teaches, helped me understand drumming all together. I feel its a essential couse that every drummer should take. From Beginner to Advanced....
The video shows the correct method for achieving success with the rudiments. Lionel's methods really work!
First and foremost just being able to see the rudiments being played is extremely helpful. Being able to revisit them as often as needed is a real bonus, one that you won't get with a teacher (unless you're willing to pay!). I enjoyed the paradiddle lesson best.
I have noticed an increase in speed and endurance. Being taught how to play while relaxed is so important and this can only help. I can't wait to apply the lessons learned to the drum set!
His slow teaching means that you don't get lost, you can watch it with a practice pad or next to a drum kit etc. pause it and slowly work on what you just saw without having to re-wind to make sure you know what you are doing.
What I mainly begun to work on were double strokes and para-diddles, so far they have improved drastically, I can play them even and they sound a lot better than before. Admittedly the DVD helped quite a lot.
