The best part about
playing the drums.

Handy playalong tools make it easier than ever
to play the songs you love and nail every part.

Find the perfect tempo.

Slow down or speed up any section of a song to hear every note your favorite drummer plays. When you’ve nailed the part, bump the tempo back up and rock out in real time.

Loop the trouble spots.

No more pausing and rewinding when you mess up that fill. Simply grab the section of the song and loop it over, and over, and over until you’ve got it down.

Counting just got easier.

Add or remove the metronome to help you count out the beats in a bar. This makes learning songs of all levels easier -- even that odd-time Rush song!

Take your charts anywhere.

Downloadable pdf files let you take sheet music of your favorite songs anywhere -- to the gig, rehearsal with the band, or back to the practice space.

Available on all your devices.

Load up DrumeoSONGS on your phone during practice time, your laptop when you’re behind the kit, and your tablet at the gig -- wherever the music takes you!

LEVEL 1

Getting Started
On The Drums

30 LESSONS

Level 1 is where you’ll develop a rock-solid foundation for your drumming that will prepare you for all the other levels in the Drumeo Method and set you up for success for the rest of your drumming journey. Whether you want to be a rock, jazz, gospel, or blues drummer, to name a few – the skills you’ll learn in this level will help you get there.

You’re going to learn how to set up your drum-set, how to properly hold your drumsticks and play your pedals, and best of all, you’ll learn how to play two songs on the drums in no time! You will also start to develop your ears in this level so you can simply play what you hear.


LEVEL 2

Basic Theory &
Ear Training

51 LESSONS

Theory and notation, rudiments, independence, new styles, and ear training! Level 2 is where you’ll start to develop skills in some core areas that you’ll continue to work on throughout the rest of the Drumeo Method. You’ll learn some basic rudiments which are considered the alphabet of drumming, you’ll learn how to read drum notation and understand basic theory, you’ll learn how to practice effectively, and you’ll even dive into drumming styles like rock, punk, and metal.

Level 2 is also where you’ll start working on some new ear training skills to become a more musical drummer. These are invaluable skills that you’ll be able to apply to some new play-along tracks in this level and all of the other music you love to play!


LEVEL 3

The Motions
Of Drumming

59 LESSONS

This level will change the way you approach playing the drums. By learning the motions of drumming, you will become a more efficient drummer able to play faster, smoother, and for longer periods of time. This is no easy task, but the payoff is huge! Taking the time to properly learn the motions will help you avoid injury and drastically improve the sound of your drumming.

Level 3 will also introduce you to some new rudiments like the flam and drag, some new styles like country and disco, and expand on the theory, independence, and ear training concepts you learned about in Level 2.


LEVEL 4

The Moeller Method &
Essential Grooves

64 LESSONS

Now that you’ve started to develop the motions of drumming, you’re ready to start learning the Moeller Method. This is a technique that drummers have been using for decades to achieve power, efficiency, and fluidity on the drums. Level 4 is where you’ll take your technical abilities to a new level, begin to play in different time signatures, and start exploring new rhythmic concepts like half-time feels and filling over the barline. You’ll also be introduced to jazz, blues, and rock ballads, in addition to learning how to develop musicality within each new style.


LEVEL 5

Rhythmic Groupings
& Independence

63 LESSONS

Every song you’ve ever heard is made up of different groupings of notes. In the same way, this is true for all of the patterns that you play on the drums! Level 5 is where you’ll be introduced to the concept of groupings and how you can use them to create different grooves and fills. In this level, you’ll start to explore new styles like funk, Motown, reggae, and bossa nova, and continue to develop your 4-limb independence, understanding of theory and notation, and ability to create musical drum parts in different styles.


LEVEL 6

Odd Time &
Improvisation

51 LESSONS

Level 6 is where you’ll start to move into some more challenging material. You’ll learn how to play in odd time signatures, how to develop finger control, and how to play tons of new styles ranging from hip-hop to soca to the second line. In this level, you’ll also dive into the world of improvisation and drum solos, learn some new rudiments, create new beats and fills with odd note groupings, and explore some new independence concepts.


LEVEL 7

Foot Technique
& Combinations

Available January

This level focuses on developing your foot technique with both single and double pedals. That’s right… double pedals! You’ll learn about the slide, heel-toe, and swivel techniques, how to develop speed and endurance, and best of all, how to apply all of this to heavy metal and punk music. Level 7 is also where you’ll learn about hand-to-foot combinations and how to create your own drum fills using different combinations. Even if punk and metal aren’t your styles of choice, the concepts in this level are essential for any drummer wanting to develop their creativity and versatility behind the kit.


LEVEL 8

Brushes, Texture,
& Articulation

Available February

Throughout the first seven levels, you learned a lot about what to play on the drums. In Level 8, you’re going to focus on the how of drumming by exploring articulation and texture. Level 8 is also where you’ll learn how to play with brushes, explore styles from Cuba and Brazil like mozambique and samba, and learn to read and understand charts, lead sheets, and song forms used in jazz and Latin music. These are all essential skills, especially if you want to become a gigging drummer.


LEVEL 9

Advanced Styles &
Musical Decisions

Available March

Level 9 covers a wide range of advanced material. From Afro-Cuban styles like mambo, nanigo, and songo to advanced independence concepts like rhythmic layering and sticking interpretations, this level will definitely challenge you. Here, you’ll also spend some time learning how to make musical decisions for any musical situation you’re in. Whether you’re jamming with a guitarist in your basement, playing in a wedding cover band, or touring the world playing stadiums with a rock band, it’s important to know how to make musical decisions for your specific scenario.


LEVEL 10

Go Anywhere
On The Drums

Available April

The final level of the Drumeo Method gives you a taste of what else is out there in the world of drumming. Like the title states, Level 10 prepares you to “go anywhere on the drums”. You’ll learn about advanced rhythmic concepts like metric modulation, polyrhythms, and polymeters, hybrid rudiments, sixteenth note odd meters, subdivisions like quintuplets and septuplets, and different types of soloing. All of this paired with an entire “Next Steps” section will help you know exactly where to go next as you move forward into the rest of your drumming journey.
