Rapidly Improve
Your Rock Drumming

Must-Know Rock Beats

Discover the straight rock beats that ALWAYS work -- and that everyone should know -- along with Todd’s advice for adding variations and texture within the grooves to make them your own.

Effective Drum Fills

The most effective rock drum fills are often much simpler than you’d think. Todd will share his toolkit of drum fills that EVERY rock drummer should be able to play like their life depended on it.

The Foundation Of Musicality

Todd will share the “Rosetta Stone of 2 & 4” so you can decipher ALL there is to play in 4/4 backbeat time -- the foundation for becoming a musical drummer in a 20th century rock and roll context.

Bass Drum Combinations

You’ll get extensive bass and double bass drum ideas that you can apply to a variety of musical situations, from more creative drum fills to creative hand/foot combinations and ending songs effectively.

Expressive Drum Solos

Soloing gives you the opportunity to tell a story and make your own creative ideas come to life. Todd will give you the tools you need to orchestrate effective drum solos for a variety of musical situations.

Rhythmic Ear Training

Rock drumming is more than a learned motion. This course will help you train your ears to hear the patterns within the patterns -- so you can explore your imagination for new rhythmic possibilities.

Better Hand Technique

Get Todd’s best insights for improving your hand technique and natural motions for more speed, power, and longevity -- from holding your sticks to cymbal techniques for creating the sounds and patterns you want.

Utilizing Ghost Notes

Add more flavor to your drumming by exploring the ghost note possibilities that Todd utilizes in his own performances, whether it’s a flurry of audible notes or soft comments between the accents.

Drum Rudiment Orchestrations

Add the most effective rudiment orchestrations and variations to your arsenal, with exercises that will help you internalize the patterns and express them more effectively on the drum set.

Shuffles And Variations

Explore the most useful rock shuffles throughout history and the different ways you can play them predicated on the style, tempo, bass drum patterns, and hand patterns you choose.

Linear Drumming Grooves

Linear drumming is where no two sound sources play at the same time. You’ll dive into Gary Chaffee style linear drumming that uses a number system for creating your own ideas and figures.

Exploring Your Creativity

While you’ll explore the concepts that Todd uses in his own playing, you’ll be pushed to explore your own imagination and develop ideas that are uniquely YOURS (and have way more fun on the drums).

He’s been voted the “Best Rock Drummer” by the readers of Modern Drummer Magazine and hailed as the “Best Drum Clinician” by the readers of DRUM! Magazine -- releasing multiple award-winning educational DVDs and enjoying a 20+ year tenure with the legendary rock band Styx.

“I’m going to give you one new lesson each week, for 26 weeks, so you always know exactly what to practice, for exactly how long, without any guesswork”, Todd explains. “And unlike other online masterclasses, you are going to be able to rack my brain -- asking me any question you have along the way and getting my personal feedback to help you overcome any obstacles and see real improvements in your playing.”

Students will receive weekly videos with unique exercises and assignments for each skill level -- so whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player, you will be challenged in different ways to improve your skills and become the best rock drummer you can possibly be.

The Rock Drumming Masterclass is delivered through the award-winning Drumeo platform, where you can access your weekly videos and assignments using any internet-ready computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.

"Todd Sucherman is one of the
greatest rock drummers of our time."

Will Calhoun
(Living Colour)

"Todd Sucherman is a great drummer. Although he’s most known for playing Rock-n-Roll, he possesses the facility and knowledge to play any style of music at a high level."

Dave DiCenso
(Professor of Percussion at Berklee College of Music)

Matt Garstka

Dave Mattacks
(Fairport Convention)

"I’m happy to endorse my chum Todd with this splendid Drumeo course. Wherever you are along your drumming path, I can honestly say that “Todd hardly ever wrecks the music.” Seriously though! You’re in great hands here— double entendre intentional!"

What past students are saying about
Todd & the Rock Drumming Masterclass.

"If you’ve ever wondered “how do they do THAT?!”"

If you've seen a drummer live, or have heard fills or drum parts and wondered, "How the hell does he do that?", well, it's explained in Rock Drumming Masterclass. You'll find out it's easier than you think.

Every week there's an "ah-ha!" moment to learn from. Todd shares 40 years of drumming expertise within a few months of lessons. There's nothing you can't practice or work on for the rest of your life. If there's a drum fill or phrase I need to work out and learn, I know where to go in the lessons. The information is there, word for word from Todd himself.

Todd will tell you point-blank what you've probably been doing wrong, and then show you how to correct it. There are several instances when he says, "This is the only way to do it properly", and I wish someone had shown me these things years ago.

Alan Shaffer
- Texas, USA

"My drumming and musicianship is finally unlocked!"

It feels like life is now unlocked for all that it has to offer musically. It’s amazing to realize all the possibilities we have when playing the drums! Todd gave interesting tips that helped me understand how my body works, particularly when I learned that the moment we change the sticking, we change the melody. You will enjoy the ride with Todd. With his help, reaching your goals will be easier.

Pamm Cobo
- Mexico

"I was skeptical about online instruction."

I was skeptical about online instruction, but this has made me a believer. I’m now looking at drumming as a continuous learning journey as opposed to an ‘instant cure.’ Todd takes a no fluff, straight-to-the-point, no-magic-pill approach, which I really appreciate! I love the fact that you can continuously reference previous lessons, slow or speed up tempos, and see the instructor break it all down.

Rob Scalici
- Michigan, USA

"I was squeezing my drum sticks too much."

Rock Drumming Masterclass was a breath of fresh air. I was squeezing too much on the sticks before, and fixing that has made such a difference. After 25 years as a full time drumming professional, I’m already using the techniques learned here with my own students. The course is wonderfully conceived, well produced, and highly informative. It’s given me a new perspective!

Shawn Preston
- Pennsylvania, USA

"I can play just about anything on the fly!"

The really powerful thing about Rock Drumming Masterclass is that while each lesson focuses on very specific things, you’ll notice how they’re all connected as your playing evolves. Now when I start jamming along to a song, I can play just about any sticking or fills on the fly. My hands seem to know how to resolve patterns without thinking. This course proves that with the right material and some honest work and discipline, you can vastly improve your musicianship!

Dear future students: if you choose RDM, you will be given the keys to open some very important doors in your musical career. It will not only change how you play, but how you learn, too! I can’t think of another class that offers you as many crucial tools to become a seriously great drummer. Don’t pass up this chance!

Michael Malo
- Quebec, Canada

"This is my road map for getting better."

Step by step, Todd ‘peels the onion’. Step by step, each week builds on the prior week. He comes off as a relatable teacher who's been where we are and remembers that - not someone who’s looking down his nose at us. I now have a road map to follow to get better. That's the simple truth. Rock Drumming Masterclass is the gift that will keep on giving.

Robert Abraham
- California, USA

Still Have Questions?

When does the course officially start?

You’ll get the entire 26-week course immediately, so you can start on your own schedule.

Do these lessons work for electronic and acoustic drum-sets?

Yes, the lessons will work on both electric and acoustic drum-sets. While you’ll even gain plenty of value with just a practice pad, it’s recommended that you have access to a drum set to get the most from this course.

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.

Will I still have full access to the course after 26 weeks?

Yes! Even though it’s a week-by-week course, you’ll have LIFETIME online access to everything inside The Rock Drumming Masterclass, so you can review the materials or re-watch the lessons, anytime.

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.
