Tommy Igoe guides you towards developing and maintaining the physical tools that are essential for every drummer and drumming application: your hands.

At the heart of this life-changing, career-extending system is the three-tier “Lifetime Warmup” originally conceived in the 1950s by Tommy’s father, Sonny Igoe. Featuring basic, intermediate, and advanced levels - the Lifetime Warmup is a challenging routine that weaves its way through standard drum rudiments and original exercises while simultaneously keeping drummers in command of their basic drumming motions.

Your pathway to playing better, faster, and healthier for a lifetime of pain-free drumming -- Great Hands For A Lifetime will help you unlock your potential and protect your hands for the many years of drumming to come.

All sheet music features Drumeo SmartBeat Sheet Music for playing or pausing the notation, speeding up or slowing down the exercises, and creating loops to improve your learning experience. You’ll also get online access to Drumeo features like progress tracking, video commenting, and community forums where you can connect with students and teachers from around the world.
