Meet Some Of Our Awesome Drumeo Students!
"It has re-ignited the spark in me. I thought I peaked in the mid-60s, but now I realize I haven't peaked yet at all. I've got a long way to go before I peak."
"It's been a goal of mine to play with other musicians, and Drumeo has built the confidence in me to take that risk!"
"It's about getting the right people around you. If you get the right people around you it makes it that much easier to move forward."
"The people I played music with started saying to me: 'Wow you're getting really good'. They started noticing, and that motivated me to keep going back!"
"If I don't catch something the first time, I can go back again and replay it over. It's just right at your fingertips, it's very simple."
"At the time I signed up I figured my entire life I would play in the basement. About six months later I did a live gig at a bar for a charity - from there, I'm hooked!"
"Drumeo Edge has helped me develop my skills to get with other musicians, get on stage in front of 600 people, and keep them there all night grooving to the music."
"I'm on the road a lot, so I can't always be at the live lessons - but they're recorded so I can watch them any time I want."
"I don't think there's a better place to learn on the internet. I really don't!"
"There are many advantages to Drumeo - mostly because of the wealth of instructors, the wealth of information. I don't just have one instructor, I have dozens."
"I only see my in-person instructor for an hour a week. He is very positive about Drumeo because it's a way to supplement what he's teaching me."
"Drumeo has expanded my views of drumming... you learn everything from hand percussion, to jazz, hand speed, foot speed. Everything under the sun is in Drumeo."
"It really teaches you dynamics, it teaches you the tone, the musicality of things. Every genre you want to learn, it's there for you."
"It worked best for me because I can do it when I have the time to do it. It's something I can do whether it's morning, afternoon, or late evening."
"Drumeo's got such a wide variety of instructors, and each of them have their own pockets of expertise."

"Drumeo is the easiest way for me to learn the drums, because I can learn anything I want, whenever it works best for me!"
Hi everyone, I'm Petr Cech - I'm a professional football player playing for Arsenal Football Club in England. And I decided to share my experience with Drumeo because I find it very interesting, and really useful.
Three years ago when I decided to take the challenge and start playing drums, I couldn't find a way to meet regularly with a drum instructor because of my busy schedule. As a professional sportsman you always travel for games with your team, or you always practice. I was lucky enough to discover the Drumeo lessons, which caught my interest because you can learn anything you want, at anytime and in any place in the world.
There are a lot of lessons for drummers of all levels. There are also a lot of play-alongs that are a lot of fun. I don't have time to get a band together to just jam, so the play-alongs are a great way for me to move forward and apply what I've learned.
Overall, Drumeo is the easiest way for me to learn the drums, because I can learn anything I want, whenever it works best for me! The lessons can be very individual. There's anything for everybody, and I highly recommend them to all drummers who want to improve their skills.

"It's so refreshing - one of the best things that could possibly happen to the drumming world."
I think that Drumeo is the best experience I've had as far as online or anything to do with drumming. I've been drumming since 1970, so I got something to say about that. I really enjoy it. I really enjoy the gang over at Drumeo. They are absolutely positive. Non-competition as far as the information that goes back and forth. It's wonderful. It's so refreshing - one of the best things that could possibly happen to the drumming world. Keep up the good work and I just see better things coming.

"I'm on a very busy schedule at work and it's tough for me to just take drum lessons..."
I have to say that the Drumeo Edge service that you provide is incredible. I’ve been buying your videos for years now, and one of the things I liked about the videos was their convenience. I’m on a very busy schedule at work and it’s tough for me to just take drum lessons that are at set times. Now with the Drumeo Edge system, I can actually attend several of the live lessons per week, and I can go back in the archives and watch the old lessons. I get all the sheet music, I get all the references... I can go back at any time and watch any of the videos over again to see if there is something I missed - to pickup tips and tricks that I missed before.
The service is just incredible. The number of instructors, the quality of the instructors, and how well they present the material is just awesome. The sheer number of topics, and stuff like that, it just ensures that I have a plethora of stuff that I can go over at any given time when I want to sit down and do a lesson. On top of that, the cost is very minimal for that.
I’ve paid up to $100 per hour for drum instruction with an instructor, and I didn’t pick up much from him. Here I’m paying a lot less than that for monthly lessons where I’m getting 20-24 lessons per month - and just excellent instruction and excellent topics on these lessons. I couldn’t be more pleased with the service. I’m a lifetime member. I’m one of the first that signed up for lifetime, and I’ll be a member for the rest of my drumming days.
You guys service is awesome. I just love it. Keep going guys. I love it. Thank you very much.

"Where can you get five lessons per week from working drummers at such a reasonable cost?"
I’ve been playing drums for over 20 year. I’m a drum instructor and proud to say a working/gigging drummer in New York. I’m a lifetime member of Drumeo, and I’d just like to say how great the site is. I really enjoy the quality of the instructors. They are all professionals - they’re working pros who are out there gigging and recording in the studios.
The archive section is great. Anytime that I miss a lesson, I can go to the archives at my convenience - catch up on the missed lesson or I can review a lesson that I want to work on and get a little more familiar with. The crew at Drumeo is fantastic - they are always willing to answer questions during the live lessons. I find the ability to ask a question and get the question answered in real-time really enhances the learning experience.
Any of you people out there thinking about advancing your drumming skills - check out drumeo. It’s a great site. The instructors are all top notch. They are all really high quality pros who really take the time and patience to explain their lessons. We also have the ability to download the sheet music and print it out on our computers, and we can also download the MP3 files that are provided with each lesson. So, once again - Drumeo is the place to go.
Where can you get five lessons per week from working drummers at such a reasonable cost? I signed up as a lifetime member. I think the education and the knowledge that I receive on Drumeo is priceless. It’s definitely a great investment. Invest in yourself, invest in your skills, and happy drumming.
Brian Burbage - Delaware, USA
"I've actually learned a ton since joining. It's been a great avenue. Very flexible."
I’ve been playing drums for about 35 years now, all professionally, and have loved what you’ve done with the site. I’ve actually learned a ton since joining. It’s been a great avenue. Very flexible. I especially like the fact that you can get in either to the live lessons because you schedule them throughout the day and in the evenings, makes it very flexible, but then also recording them and being able to watch them back at any time at your leisure is also great. Lots of great instructors - lots of different variety. Keep it up. Great work. Thanks.
Doug Martin - Saskatchewan, Canada
"That was 40 years ago... and thought that would be a great hobby to start again."
I’ve been playing the drums actually just for a few months. I did play the drums when I was a teenager, and never really learned the rudiments. That was 40 years ago and I came across Drumeo in December, and thought that would be a great hobby to start again. I’ve really enjoyed the lessons. Probably the biggest thing for me has been the availability to go into the archives, and also the live lessons have been awesome.
Just a great job guys. I live in a rural area of Saskatchewan - it’s not really possible to get in for instruction, so the service is just invaluable. It’s been a real joy.
Chris Lockhart - Georgia, USA
"Better than I expected... really motivates me to want to excel and become better as a drummer."
I really enjoy the Drumeo Edge experience. It’s been better than what I expected. It offers the variety of a private lesson by interacting with the instructor through questions, as well as the flexibility of a DVD-based course where I can go back and I can play the instruction as much as I want to. I really enjoy it - it’s been better than I expected.
I love the variety of instructors that are available through Drumeo Edge. They each bring a different perspective to drumming, and they also provide a good balance of professionalism and passion - which really motivates me to want to excel and become better as a drummer. So, I’d like to thank the Drumeo Edge team for all that they do, and keep up the great work.
Tristan Winneker - California, USA
"...my ability levels have really taken off since the launch of Drumeo Edge."
I’ve been drumming for about nine months now, and I used to play saxaphone in our band but took over the drums when our drummer moved away. When I started I could keep a pretty steady beat, but my ability levels have really taken off since the launch of Drumeo Edge.
The archive lessons are awesome, and the inclusion of sheet music is really helpful for me when I practice. The instructors are really enthusiastic and their skill level is really inspiring for me. So, I just want to say thanks to the entire Drumeo crew for creating such an awesome drumming community. Thanks alot guys.
Michael Lawson - Tennessee, USA
"Drumeo gave me the opportunity to go where I wanted to go with my drumming..."
Drumeo gave me the opportunity to go where I wanted to go with my drumming, instead of getting with a teacher in my area and hoping for the best. I was able to pull on resources, just decades of drumming experience, from the various instructors... have all of my questions answered in a timely fashion, and learn things I never would have imagined that I could have learned from just taking drum lessons in my area with a drum instructor one-on-one.
It allowed me to go forward in ways that I never thought would be possible. I recommend Drumeo to anyone thats wanting to get better at drums or just master certain techniques that maybe they are having trouble with - from beginner, to intermediate, to advanced. It’s just an amazing service and I can’t say more good things about it.
Rory Anderson - Utah, USA
"I felt like a celebrity - I've had personal chances to talk to each of the instructors..."
I have been amazed as I’ve worked through Drumeo. I felt like a celebrity - I’ve had personal chances to talk to each of the instructors through the community and through the online lessons. I really see my playing click. I just see myself grow as a drummer. One of the things thats impressed me most is through the community and through the instructors - I have felt myself connect to this giant world of drummers. All over the world, I mean - just worldwide. That’s just something thats amazing to me. It’s been worth every cent. Thanks Drumeo.
James Nance - Texas, USA
"...the Drumeo community has been really good and your instructors are doing a great job."
I just wanted to say thanks for the Drumeo Edge system. The interactions between the Drumeo community has been really good and your instructors are doing a great job. You guys keep up the great work. Thanks a lot!
Thomas Hahn - Mexico
"...thanks to Drumeo, this has been the best thing I could do to improve my drumming over time."
I just wanted to say that Drumeo has been for me I think the greatest investment. To just have this incredible opportunity to learn from such a large variety of great instructors. They help me keep motivated and give me lots of advice. And well, it has become a huge incredible community to share your ideas, to share your learning experience, to share advice, to share tips, to share tricks... it’s just been a month since I’ve been in there, and it’s such a huge thing for me now. Paying what I pay, for one month of private instruction, for a year is just amazing. Thanks to the crew, thanks to Drumeo, this has been the best thing I could do to improve my drumming over time.
Larry Komenda - Maryland, USA
"I wasn't sure about whether I wanted to commit to something like this..."
My Drumeo experience has been pretty awesome. I wasn’t sure about whether I wanted to commit to something like this, but once I tried out the first live lesson I was hooked, because I realized just how much information I could take away from this army of drum instructors... and what they could offer me that I couldn’t get anywhere else. I’m a beginner drummer and I knew I needed something to keep me motivated, and give me a good setup and good array of lessons and other things to really kinda get my drum journey started. So, I signed up for Drumeo and I’m glad I did. I don’t regret it at all, and I’d recommend it to anyone.
Brian Turk - Michigan, USA
"I've been able to learn at a pace that I didn't think I would be able to learn at this point in my life."
I have had a passion to play the drums for a long time, and never really had the resources to do such. Finally, I’m at a point in my life, kinda late - wish I would have started sooner, to go ahead and try and pursue that passion. Had a real hard time finding any sort of instructions around locally - best bet was the next town over. It was a 30 minute drive to go get instructions at the cost of about $30 per lesson, and now with Drumeo I can get five lessons a week, all with an hour, and it turns out to be a fraction of the cost compared to taking private lessons. All within the comfort of home, I get to sit and play my drum set while watching along. It’s amazing, and the community is amazing. It’s great. I’ve been able to learn at a pace that I didn’t think I would be able to learn at this point in my life. I really appreciate it. Thanks guys, keep up the good work.
Dennis Shaw - Washington, USA
"...really got hooked on it from the great teachers that we have on Drumeo."
Just wanted to say that I started drumming for therapy for Parkinson's disease, and really got hooked on it from the great teachers that we have on Drumeo. And also, I like the fact that these teachers are real drummers and they put their sticks were their mouth is, and really show us the best way to do things. So, I highly recommend the system for anybody and everybody that wants to improve. Thank you very much.
Josh Roberts - Tennessee, USA
"I certainly owe all the progress I've made to Drumeo, and I appreciate it all..."
I’ve been playing the drums for about five months, and I started playing the drums to be in a band with a couple of my buddies who are both excellent guitar players. In five months, not only have they been happy with the progress I’ve made in keeping up with them - I think I’ve far exceeded their expectations in what I’ve been able to do to participate in song composition, and creating unique and interesting beats for our original music. I certainly owe all the progress I’ve made to Drumeo, and I appreciate it all. I’ll be a member for as long as I’m playing the drums. Thanks guys.
Jack Sienkiewicz - New Jersey, USA
"Really glad to have found Drumeo Edge... it's a great community."
Really glad to have found Drumeo Edge. I was kinda nervous about what I would find, and found its a great community. Very welcoming and I really appreciate it. Hope you guys keep up the good work. Thanks very much.
Paul Telford - California, USA
"I just don't know of any other place or way that I can make that happen other than on Drumeo..."
The thing about Drumeo that I’m really blown away by is that I can sit in my house in California and get these live lessons that are going on somewhere else in the world. It doesn’t really matter where, but they are coming to me in California. I can give my feedback and questions, and get instant response to that. This is happening five days a week. I just don’t know of any other place or way that I can make that happen other than on Drumeo. It’s just great.
Especially with the archived lessons - I can go back in and watch those anytime on my iPad, my iphone, whatever. And now even with my Apple TV I can beam that to my 50” screen in my living room - watch those archives, and then take that PDF and go right to the drum kit and apply what I learned in that lesson. It’s really great. The value for money there, you know I was a little nervous about paying the money for it... I wasn’t sure what I would get out of it for the cost, but absolutely I’ve gotten value for money out of it. It’s really great. There is no other website that I know of, or even through private lessons - it just doesn’t have the depth with private lessons for the money. It wouldn’t have the depth of content that I get out of Drumeo, so that’s it.
Justin Olsen - Iowa, USA
"...if I miss a live lesson I can catch it later and re-watch it as many times as I want."
I’m 33 years old and started playing the drums about two months ago. Looked into some private sessions and they were wanting $20 per hour, and with Drumeo I can get two of those and it’ll last me a month. I really like the archives, so if I miss a live lesson I can catch it later and re-watch it as many times as I want. Thanks Drumeo.
Rosemarie Wise - United Kingdom
"I'm really honoured that I can take part in a learning revolution... thanks to all the team."
I really liked the idea of live lessons as soon as I discovered it was possible. It's a fantastic use of the internet and for the first time since I started learning really helps me feel a part of the drumming community. Being able to join in with the lessons late without the risk of disrupting everyone else and getting told off for making noise is quite the novelty.
Of course, the lessons are recorded and archived so there is no excuse for me to have missed an important lesson, I simply just need go to the archive to replay it! I'm really honoured that I can take part in a learning revolution... thanks to all the team for all their hard work in making this possible!
Nikolai Nielsen - Denmark
"We have a very helpful community... everyone is welcome and no one gets left behind."
Drumeo is phenomenal, that's about the best way to describe it. The lessons are great and varied, so there's never a dull moment. I strive my best to attend the live lessons, but because I live in Denmark, there's a huge time difference between the Drumeo guys and me. This would rule out a conventional live lesson, but with Drumeo there's always the archive where all lessons are kept. This allows me to still keep up with the lessons.
And in between the lessons, there's the forums: This is where Drumeo really kicks bottom. We have a very helpful community where everyone is welcome and no one gets left behind. You can post all your drumming questions and get answers really quickly, you can post videos and get feedback on every aspect of it. You can even just relax and have a chat with the members in the off-topics section! I come from gaming forums, where the atmosphere can be quite offensive sometimes, so this was a total turnaround and I think it's one of the things that has made Drumeo Edge a success: The atmosphere. It's one of the things that make you want to learn more about this amazing instrument, and get a whole lot better at playing it. Drumeo is great and I never want to leave!
Rob Matthews - Alberta, Canada
"...I would strongly suggest this be your first choice in enhancing your abilities."
Seriously, where else can you get daily lessons with multiple teachers bringing their own unique perspective, experiences, and skill sets into your home - answering your specific questions or requests for technique explanation and demonstration. The site is easy to navigate, the lessons are entertaining as well as informative, and I have been so conditioned by the high quality of lessons that I am disappointed to miss one. But, thanks for the archives, I never have to miss one!
The feedback I got from the video I submitted was very helpful. Dave continues to be a great host for the sessions, and the Drumeo Edge support team including the admin folks and Victor and the Audio Guru team have been very helpful. My own skill set has improved immensely from the packs and Drumeo Edge. For anyone contemplating Drumeo Edge, I would strongly suggest this be your first choice in enhancing your abilities.
Drumeo Edge is a flexible, comprehensive, cost effective way for drummers of all skill levels and degree of interest (from the passionate to the curious) to further themselves as drummers in the comfort of their own home. Period.
Niklas Mannila - Finland
"Drumeo has been a great motivator for me... I am having the time of my life."
At the beginning when I joined Drumeo, I set a goal for myself that I was going to start improving my skills, time-keeping, and getting in a band. Drumeo has been a great motivator for me and I like to think that it was due to the Drumeo community and listening to the pro's telling all the band stories that got me posting a "drummer seeking band" ad on the web. I don't think I would have had the confidence to do that before. I got a lot of replies and now I have settled with a really groovy band and I am having the time of my life.
Drumeo Edge has been really great. I love the variety of instructors, the chat and the chance I get to discuss with other Drumeo members. Joining the live lessons have been a really big help because I get to hear professional drummers share their own experiences, follow the lessons in great detail and go back and watch them later in the archives.
The community is awesome. I have been able to ask questions in the forum and get an answer from somebody during the same day (within hours). There are so many drummers with so much different experience and it's good to be able to tap into that combined knowledge. Thank you so much for all your hard work.
Daniel J. Jones - New Zealand
"...I never miss a lesson, there is always something in them for everyone, regardless of skill level."
Before joining Drumeo - cost was my biggest concern. Would I get my moneys worth? I was unsure if all the lessons would suit me or any for that matter. Now I never miss a lesson, there is always something in them for everyone, regardless of skill level. I really love having many varied instructors. Its lets you see things from all angles.
The online community is amazing too. Incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The use of pdf sheet music and mp3 play-alongs, and having all lessons archived and easily accessible at any time for revision makes Drumeo very flexible and easy to use. I would recommend it to any drummer serious about expanding their technical and musical abilities. The Drumeo instructors and team are incredible! They always find the time to help you as an individual. That is what makes Drumeo so great!
Fenton Parsons - United Kingdom
"It is undoubtedly the best drumming resource available on the web today."
As a mature drumming student (48) who only lifted a set of sticks a year ago - I didn't really know what sort of help I needed in addition to my local lessons. I stumbled across it via Google and the rest they say is history!
I love the relaxed atmosphere and the joviality in the lessons, and I especially find all the different camera angles really useful. The archives are also essential for me and I'm sure many others who cannot regularly make the live lessons.
The way I can keep looking back at rudiments is awesome. I've gotta say Jared, you've hit the nail on the head buddy! Give yourselves a big pat on the back and thanks for a great drumming resource and all the laughs and frustration that it gives me. It is undoubtedly the best drumming resource available on the web today.
Adam Brenner - Michigan, USA
"...the archives let you go back and really dissect what the instructor has to teach you."
The team at Drumeo have created one of the best things to happen to drumming since Animal from the Muppets! They really care about you and your learning of the drums - enough to call you personally and make sure you have a chance to participate in this revolutionary lesson system. Getting a daily, hour-long lesson is easily worth the price of admission. Every lesson has something to teach, whether it is a new beat or fill, or a new perspective on a technique.
If you happen to miss the lesson live, the archives let you go back and really dissect what the instructor has to teach you, or take on an advanced lesson when you're ready. It's amazing to get lessons from so many instructors, and so often! There's no other way to get such personal lessons with so many instructors, Drumeo has accomplished something great here. Not only do you get a daily lesson, but you become part of a community of drummers to learn and connect with, students and instructors alike.
Anne Lott - Australia
"...all the teachers are very motivating, they love teaching and passing on their knowledge."
The teachers are amazing drummers. Having 14 different teachers available to you makes all the lessons and playing styles very diverse. I love everything about Drumeo. It makes it very hard to specify one feature. The live lessons are fantastic, all the teachers are very motivating, they love teaching and passing on their knowledge.
The Drumeo community is made up of great people who have a wicked sense of humour and are very encouraging with one another. The archive section is fantastic! Because lessons are on at varying times to suit all students worldwide, it can be difficult at times to make them all. This isn't a problem though, every lesson is archived for life. So, you can watch any lesson over and over without fear of it being pulled down. I don't know of any other site that is so generous with their archives. Most of them rotate or pull lessons down after 1 month.
As i mentioned above, having access to so many instructors is wonderful. On the forum you have a section for posting your videos and getting them critiqued and reviewed by the instructors. You also get feedback from your fellow students which is great! Also, you don't get one lesson a week with Drumeo, you get 5 lessons a week, every week.
Jason Brown - Oregon, USA
"I'm an extremely busy person, so I thought it wouldn't be worth the money to join Drumeo..."
I'm an extremely busy person, so I thought it wouldn't be worth the money to join Drumeo. However, I used to be such an internet scavenger, constantly searching for drumming-related stuff: lessons, covers, practice exercises, etc. Now, that I have joined drumeo, I feel like I always have an ENORMOUS amount of stuff to read, exercises to practice, videos to watch, other drummers to interact with... it's absolutely amazing!
The pure insight that Mike Michalkow, Dave Atkinson, Jared Falk et al. provide is awesome, and being able to pick their brains in real-time is so useful. Moreover, in case I have a really busy week at work, Drumeo allows me to watch the archived lessons on my own time. That's definitely helpful! Interacting with other drummers on the forums is a lot of fun, chatting during the live lessons is always a blast, and being able to watch everything on my iPad is super helpful.
It's like having Dave and Jared over my house practicing with me! Drumeo provides me with daily motivation that has been unbelievable, and I feel like I've made a new circle of friends at the same time. I'm looking forward to being part of Drumeo for a long time.
Loncarski Srdjan - Serbia
"This is all about the community and helping drummers achieve their drumming dreams."
Drumeo Edge isn’t just another drum lessons site that you can watch some cool lessons and learn few new tricks. This is all about the community and helping drummers achieve their drumming dreams. Live lessons are always great, and so motivating because they are covering many different topics, so I can learn everything that I want to learn and in my own pace. There are many different instructors so I can see all those different approaches to playing drums.
Another cool features are submit the questions during the live lesson so if I don’t fully understand something I can get that explained by some of the instructors, so I can improve my drumming faster and archive of all the lessons so I can watch them over and over again. All in all, this is the best place to be for any drummer that really wants to learn how to play this beautiful instrument.
Vincent Bouret - France
"The teachers have a great sense of humour and a passion for teaching."
The great asset of Drumeo is the fact we have access to multiples approaches thanks to all the different instructors and great camera angles. It's comforting, enriching and challenging at the same time. The teachers have a great sense of humour and a passion for teaching. Drumeo gave me new insight on drumming and the supportive community is also a great aspect.
Daniel Fuertsch - Germany
"The lessons help me to stay motivated and practice new stuff that i didn't even think of."
I joined Drumeo Edge instantly as soon as i knew of it. The lessons help me to stay motivated and practice new stuff that i didn't even think of. It is nice to have such a big source of drumming knowledge. There are so many nice features. I think the best is to have all the lessons in the archive. I often have to work at customers many miles away from home. So i can watch everything when i am back home.
Drumeo is a nice place to hang out in the internet. You can chat with friendly drummers all over the world. You can watch great lessons from likeable and professional instructors with a great base of knowledge and experience. You can ask questions, help others, get inspiration from a nice community. There are many many lessons in the archives and packs for everyone. For any style of music and any skill level. Drumeo gives me a complete source to learn from. I never regret to be part of Drumeo and i hope it will be there for many many years... hopefully forever!
Carolyne Culver - United Kingdom
"...recently took the plunge and bought a kit. Drumeo came along at the right time!"
I haven't been playing the drums for long but recently took the plunge and bought a kit. Drumeo came along at the right time! The time distance was a concern, but the archive overcomes that. I've been able to watch some of the videos more than once, and for others I've just taken the sheet music. Getting the emails to remind you about the next live lesson gives you a kick up the backside to go and practice!
The website is easy to use and the quality of the videos is great. The team is fantastic - their commitment is commendable! Keep on keeping on!
Jeremy Lua - Singapore
"One thing I love Drumeo the most is having motivating instructors..."
One thing I love Drumeo the most is having motivating instructors. For example, I learned my favourite motivation word from Mike Michalkow - "yet". There's nothing we "can't do", just "we can't do YET".
The ability to ask questions live to the instructor definitely helped the most, especially when the instructor demonstrates it out for us to understand better. The lesson archives helped people like myself who are in a different timezone. The community was great too, have fun chatting with fellow members, cheering for the instructors, sharing opinions on the chat or forums, etc. Also, the diversity of the instructors helped greatly, with the Jerry Adolphe on shuffle grooves to Sean Lang on metal and double pedals, drummers are exposed to more than what they usually play or listen to.
In conclusion, Drumeo isn't a place just for learning only. We come together and discuss, even having fun in the process, over what we love: drums! I don't regret joining, my improved techniques, a great community, and the pricing was what made me stayed on. I'm sure any new members would feel the same!
Federico Iorio - Italy
"The instructor are great, so the experience is fascinating and never boring..."
I like to study drums and I think that having a website like Drumeo is a great opportunity to get localized in one place all the information. The instructor are great, so the experience is fascinating and never boring. Other important factor: the convenience of studying at home using online method and share my passion with other drummers worldwide.
I find the lessons very interesting and motivating. This method really works!
Rob Van Valkenburg - The Netherlands
"After watching a lesson, I really want to go straight to my kit and play it!"
I always practiced my drumming with some of your DVD packs, and at that time the live lessons didn't seem to add much for me. After signing up I realised how mistaken I was. After watching a lesson, I really want to go straight to my kit and play it! The fact that is here every weekday, that there's a great many instructor that all have their unique way of teaching, that there's a very active community on the forum already, downloadable pdf & mp3 is really helpful.
I would recommend Drumeo Edge because it's inspiring and fun! If new students are accepted again - get your membership asap!
Sean Thompson - California, USA
"It's been many many years since I picked up some sticks and started playing the drums..."
It’s been many many years since I picked up some sticks and started playing the drums. This resource is great. Everything you need in one place. Really enjoy having all the packs and archives in one spot. Great to be able to work on something then switch to another topic without having to change a dvd. For me the online interface is killer. You guys are doing a great job. Keep it up.

"I would recommend Drumeo to every single drummer on the planet, it's completely unique..."
I think Drumeo is the best drumming site around. It has a wonderful community, amazing teachers, and class A advice. Nowhere else on the internet will give you instant answers by long time professionals personally to you. Thank you Jared, Dave and everyone else at Drumeo, you've created a masterpiece. I would recommend Drumeo to every single drummer on the planet, it's completely unique and absolutely wonderful.

"...comprehensive archive and cool community, it makes Drumeo Edge an excellent investment."
I recently decided to take up the drums, and wanted to find a solid online resource to help me. The interactive live lessons with professional and attentive instructors are a top notch resource; when supported with a comprehensive archive and cool community, it makes Drumeo Edge an excellent investment.
Every time I visit I learn something new, and have something to take back to my kit or practice pad and learn and have fun with. Great site, great people, great lessons! It's a fantastic value and resource.

"...a feast of drumming tapas: delectable, personable and digestible morsels of drumming goodness."
Drumeo Edge is an amazing resource for drummers of all levels. I'm just starting down this road, and Drumeo Edge is my #1 destination for an ever increasing library of drum lessons. Although I rarely catch any of the live lessons, it's great to know that the latest lesson is archived that same day, in an archive that is keyword, level, and instructor-searchable.
The website is well built and quick. The variety of instructors hosting and topics covered is impressive. I think of Drumeo Edge as a feast of drumming tapas: delectable, personable and digestible morsels of drumming goodness. You can't help but grab your iPad and sit at your drum kit to try out the exercises along with the instructor. The videos are professionally produced and the support materials are available right there for download. Whats more, a lot of the latest videos include downloadable MP3s of the exercises at various bpms. Customer support is also top notch, quickly responding to any question or concerns. They really care about what they do. Great job, Drumeo!

"Do yourself a favor and at least try it out for a month and you will see the difference..."
I would like to say that I have been playing drums on and off for over 15 years and I have never seen a "product" like Drumeo before in my life. I put product in quotes because yes, you purchase a membership but it's so much more than a shrink wrapped DVD that's basically "here's your DVD you bought, take care pal... you're on your own from here".
With Drumeo you get as close to personal lessons as the instructors can possibly deliver... post your questions, download sheet music, and mp3 files. This is everyday of the week... incredible value! Do yourself a favor and at least try it out for a month and you will see the difference in this Drumeo community. This is not the mean, hateful, negative crowd we are all familiar with on the Internet these days. It's a miracle but somehow every single person is supportive of each other and here to support all our members to become better drummers!

"I honestly believe its one of the best resources for drummers of all ages and skill levels."
I love Drumeo. I honestly believe its one of the best resources for drummers of all ages and skill levels. My drumming would not be where it is today without you guys. I love being able to contact the instructors through the forums and getting the answers I need.
I really enjoy the layout of the site, its great, and very easy to navigate. The lessons and the amazing instructors working hard to teach and give the tools necessary to become the best drummers we can possibly be! I love the forums, so many encouraging people to help answer and ask question that i never would have thought of asking. I also love the archives, I've been going back and watching some of the older lessons and i learn something new every time I watch them. Lastly, but certainly not least, customer support is one area of Drumeo that is obviously a top priority. I know that if i ever have any problems one of the very qualified Drumeo crew members will be there for me.
Thanks again drumeo, and keep rockin.

"This is something I've always wanted to do and never had the time in my younger years..."
I just really love being a part of the Drumeo community, the old saying "you're never too old to learn" is so true, and this program has made that possible by how each one of you take your time and show us how easy and fun this can be.
This is something I've always wanted to do and never had the time in my younger years. So here I am and sooo lucky to have found something like this, what a great challenge! Thank all of you sooo much! I look forward to each and every lesson. Thanks for taking the time to show and teach us how to become great drummers!

"If you haven't yet, it's worth the time and money to get involved in this. Totally recommend it..."
Afraid to spend money on another product of “hey watch what I can do and hope you can figure it out too!” I decided I'd try one last time. Not disappointed! You really pick up on things quickly. Not to mention the forums, the archives to watch past lessons, and all the downloadable content to see and understand the lessons better is amazing.
If you haven't yet, it’s worth the time and money to get involved in this. Totally recommend it to friends too... everyone will learn a lot and it makes drums fun for people who are starting out.

"All of the instructors are very easy to follow and have a great sense of humor..."
I have been a member from the beginning. This is a great addition to my private drum lessons and all of the drum packages I have purchased in the past. I love the fact that it is "real-time" and that everything works so well. All of the instructors are very easy to follow and have a great sense of humor and also know their drums.
Yes, this is for beginners (like myself), intermediate, and expert drummers. You guys are really fun to watch and since this all started - the live sessions have become part of my drum practising. Even if I can't do what you are showing I use it as a motivation for my own lessons. The funny thing is, my playing is improving as a result of this program.
