We’ve got loads of great drum lessons in Drumeo, but what’s the point of learning and practicing it all if you don’t apply it to actual music? After all, it’s the reason we started drumming in the first place, right?

“New Moon Dance” is a song written by Tosin Aribisala that contains hints of world, latin, and funk music. His main goal was to create a diverse, dynamic track that’s suitable for any occasion.

As with most play-alongs, we recommend you experiment and come up with your own ideas to compliment the music. Use the song chart as a guide!
