About the lesson:
Peter Szendofi will teach you to play FIVE grooves that you can apply in drum ‘n’ bass and jungle music. They’ll get more and more difficult as he goes on, so make sure you’re comfortable with each one before moving onto the next! These are two very demanding styles of music, but with Peter’s help you’ll be ready to tackle them in no time.

All the songs Peter plays in this lesson will be available for Drumeo members as play-alongs!
