Unlike a drum book or DVD, Drum Technique Made Easy is designed as an ongoing course with weekly exercises and cumulative improvements. Because of this, students will experience the best results if they’re able to progress along with the rest of the class. And that’s why it’s important for you to know that registration will close on April 30th at midnight.
Is Your Drum Teacher
ruce Becker’s story begins in 1977, where he began his drumming studies under the instruction of the legendary Freddie Gruber -- who has often been referred to as the “zen master” of teaching.
Freddie had a rare insight that was spurred on by his close 40 year friendship with Buddy Rich, and many of the best drummers in the world turned to him to perfect their individual techniques and styles -- including Neil Peart, Steve Smith, and Dave Weckl.
Bruce not only benefited from Freddie’s instruction for eight years, but he also developed a close personal relationship.
“I became as close as one could become with him. I became Freddie’s go-to guy, house sitter, and airport runner,” Bruce told Modern Drummer in 2013. “I am the only guy I know of that actually did five clinics with him. There are too many stories to tell.”
Freddie would have Bruce available when he’d teach other pupils, getting Bruce to demonstrate the techniques as he would teach. They spent many late nights discussing drum technique and the mind-body connection, and exactly how it applies to music.
Through this incredible relationship, Bruce was able to watch the evolution and changes Freddie made in response to musical styles and drum innovations at the time -- gaining a deeper understanding of how the body should function in all sorts of musical situations and the importance of mastering a loose technical style that is built on natural ergonomic playing.
Bruce has since gone on to build his own thoughts and concepts based on all that Freddie had shared with him -- offering the most comprehensive insights into the teachings of Freddie Gruber and applying these lessons to his own all-star cast of drum students including Daniel Glass, David Garibaldi, and Mark Schulman.
Bruce Becker’s conceptual approach to the drums is defined as “Balance + Motion = Emotion”. And through Drum Technique Made Easy, you’ll have the opportunity to study directly with Bruce through his 26-week course while receiving his personal support every step of the way.
What Drummers Are
Saying About Bruce Becker
JoJo Mayer (Nerve)
"Not only does Bruce make an effort to pass along a true understanding of drumming technique and some of its most vital 'secrets', he can also provide a profound insight into the artistic and mental aspects of the craft which, unfortunately, are too often ignored and overlooked by many teaching facilities. This has proven to be essential in the development and growth of any successful artist. Bruce knows what's up!"
(Journey, Vital Information)
"Bruce has managed to distill many of Fred Gruber’s essential teachings into manageable portions. Combining Freddie’s ideas with his own teaching discoveries and methods, Bruce has created a program that is vital viewing for all serious students of the drumset."
(Pink, Cher, Foreigner)
"Bruce is not only one of my best friends and the most analytical and progressive drum teacher on the planet, he is also MY teacher! I do success coaching music lessons and when any of my students want to study on a regular basis, I always refer them to Bruce no matter what their level. I tell them: Don’t waste any more time, just study with the best!"
(Tower of Power)
"Bruce is a tremendous educator. His years as an understudy to the late great Freddie Gruber are now serving him well. He fully understands and teaches all aspects of hand/foot technique, and is very adept at assessing what the student needs. I'm currently studying with him and look forward to where this will take me."
Dave Weckl (The Dave Weckl Band, Chick Corea)
"Bruce’s many years studying with the now legendary Freddie Gruber has gained him the ability to not only become a wonderful player, but has also helped him as a teacher to construct a very effective and easy to understand curriculum for the student to develop at their own pace, with all of the fundamental aspects of Freddie’s natural approach to drumming being applied."
(Royal Crown Revue)
"Not only is Bruce a fantastic player, but a master teacher in his own right. Having worked intensively with Freddie Gruber for nearly two decades, Bruce is in a unique position to not only pass along Freddie's teachings, but take them to his own place as well. He has a thorough knowledge of fundamental concepts such as balance, control, and developing the "internal clock" - key information that will dramatically enhance any drummers ability, no matter what style or skill level."
(Earth, Wind, & Fire)
"The study of a musical instrument is a lifetime study. Having said that, it’s absolutely essential to find a teacher who can convey the ideas and concepts that will allow you to become a confident, technical, proficient musician. Teaching is a very special gift and Bruce Becker has it. The time that I’ve spent with Bruce has been highly informative and very edifying. I always look forward to our time together. Here’s to great teachers!"
"Bruce Becker has the uncanny ability to break down and explain those subtle things that have always before eluded me in proper hand technique. Being primarily self taught, this has been of immeasurable help to me. He demystifies the mysteries in such a clear, concise, and understandable way."

"As a self-taught drummer, I was struggling for years to achieve the speed and precision I wanted on the drums. Bruce helped me modify my finger positioning and hand technique -- it felt like I’d broke through a 5-year impasse! Regardless of your skill level, if you have issues playing what you want to play and getting that onto the kit, this course is for you!"
North Carolina, USA
"This is my technique bible. I took up the drums again at 56 years old and for the past six years I was trying to take shortcuts, but they weren’t working. This course basically taught me drum technique from scratch. It has helped immensely and now I’m much more relaxed while drumming, more confident in my abilities, and my band is playing more gigs while growing our following!"
London, United Kingdom
"My drumming speed and fluidity was hitting a wall and I just couldn’t break through. Drum Technique Made Easy gave me the tools to start working out my problems and develop those skills. I’m still not exactly where I’d like to be, but my technique has improved significantly and I have a pathway to get there through application and practice. This is the best explanation of technique I’ve seen in my 40+ years of drumming. I highly recommend it."

"I was a beginner and had very little technique at all, so everything was new. Bruce broke things down very clearly and all of the exercises progressed logically and smoothly -- and they weren’t boring to practice!
Drum Technique Made Easy helped me get in the habit of having the sticks in my hands every day and to be satisfied with slow and steady progress. It gave me a new fluency and fluidity for playing grooves. My partner actually noticed it before I did and commented on how much better my playing sounded. "
"The 26 weeks made me take the time to actually work in a structured way to take me from point a-b-c-d. And I realized Drum Technique Made Easy was working when I started playing more musically with the band. I had more self-confidence and played more relaxed. This comes slowly, it doesn't happen suddenly. It is small steps and it takes the time it needs to change the way you are used to playing
No matter how good a player you are today, you will be even better after a course like this. It is definitely worth the money if you are willing to put in the time."
"It’s just amazing to feel the difference in playing things that were difficult before Drum Technique Made Easy. It almost seemed to sneak up on me from nowhere. Bruce is such a brilliant musician and teacher. It was a pleasure to get new great lessons every week that were explained so well.
The drum set has become much more fun, with ease and fluidity naturally coming through my motions. Take the course! If you stick with it, it will forever change your playing for the better! "

You'll get pre-course videos to hold you over, but Drum Technique Made Easy officially begins on Monday, April 29th.
Do these lessons work for electronic and acoustic drum-sets?
Yes, the lessons will work on both electric and acoustic drum-sets. Since you'll be developing your drum technique, you can even use a practice pad.
What’s the difference between Drum Technique Made Easy and Drumeo Edge?
Drumeo Edge lets you learn anything you want, whenever you want, from the best drummers in the world. But we've noticed that students sometimes benefit more when they are guided on a specific path - always knowing EXACTLY what to practice, when to practice, and for exactly how long. Drum Technique Made Easy is a 26-week approach to rapidly improving your drum technique where you'll also have full access to Bruce Becker’s personal inbox to get the feedback you need to reach your drumming goals.
Should I use Drum Technique Made Easy alongside Drumeo Edge?
Absolutely! Drum Technique Made Easy isn’t intended to require 100% of your practice time. It’s a focused, dedicated plan to helping you improve your technique.

We recommend both Drum Technique Made Easy and Drumeo Edge for a well-rounded approach to improving your skills.
How much time per week will this course require?
For time invested, obviously the more time you practice the faster you’ll get better. But we recommend investing at least 2-3 hours per week to truly benefit from this course.
What if I can’t follow the lessons EVERY week?
You’ll get 26 weekly lessons and exercises. And while they’re intended to be completed week-after-week, we know that everybody’s schedules are different - so we’ve included progress-tracking so you never lose your spot. If you need to miss a week, that’s fine! You might need to review the previous lessons a bit before continuing again, but you’ll never lose your spot and once you’ve registered, you have unlimited access to the entire course for life.
Can I contact Bruce Becker directly whenever I have a question about this course?
You sure can! For 26 weeks, Bruce will be your personal drum coach! You’ll have direct access to ask him questions along the way to make sure you achieve your drumming goals.

Yes! Even though it’s a week-by-week course, you’ll have LIFETIME online access to everything inside Drum Technique Made Easy, so you can review the materials or re-watch the lessons, anytime.
So there’s really no 90-day guarantee? What if I really, really don’t like the course?
There’s really no guarantee for Drum Technique Made Easy. We believe you’ll LOVE the course and the progress you make during the 26 weeks, but because this is a structured plan we’re looking for drum students who will commit and ‘grind-it-out’ to achieve results. If you really, really don’t like the course - we’ll hope you’ll keep pushing for the full six months to see what happens. You can always send us your questions and we’ll do our best to resolve any issues and make sure you have everything you need to progress!
