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!

He made the band & he’s
playing his dream gigs.

After 20 years away from the drums, Ed says he’s loving music more than ever. He nailed his first audition and has now played at the venues of his dreams.

She can now jam with
anyone she wants.

Lisa got interested in the drums by playing Rock Band. She had no idea she’d be performing with strangers in Nashville just a few years later.

Retirement was too
slow for him.

After working on the railroad for 40 years, Nick now keeps his snare drum beside his bed...just in case he wakes up with a good idea.

The student has
become the teacher.

Omari had big shoes to fill. His father was already an accomplished drummer in Trinidad & Tobago when Omari decided to take his drumming to the next level.

Same-day advice got
him through the gig.

Guy had trouble figuring out a song, he reached out and an instructor walked him through it that same day - getting him through the gig that evening.

She didn’t let cancer
stop the rhythm.

Marlene, a cancer survivor, filled her recovery time with drumming and was able to progress at a pace that worked for her.

He loved the drums as a
kid, now he’s in two bands.

and started a band.

He developed his own
style with an army of teachers.

John didn’t have time for weekly lessons or sifting through online content. Drumeo gave him structure and the ability to learn from different world class instructors.
