Beginners Rock Beats Workshop

Are you struggling with independence? Does your cymbal hand want to do what your bass drum foot foot is doing (or vica-versa)? This is one of the most common AND most frustrating problems for beginners. Now, what if I told you that I had a system that makes learning independence easy and simple, without any guesswork or struggling? Would you be interested? I do have a solution. It’s called the Vertical Independence Method™ and I’ve used it to teach independence to hundreds of students.

Allow me to quickly and easily solve your independence problem in a single live ZOOM workshop.


Allow me explain who we are, why we’re here and how we’re different from the multitude of other drumming educators out there.

So…I have to tell you about me, right?

I’ve been teaching drums (with a focus on beginners) for over a decade. I grew up in Manhattan and lived there for most of my life.

In 2009, I founded BANG! The Drum School in New York City.  

One notable credential I have: I was one of the winners of Modern Drummer Magazine’s very first drum solo contest which was judged by none other than Rush’s drummer, the legendary Neil Peart.

Sharing the joy of drumming is my goal.

I really want to help as many people learn to play the drums as I can and I’ve realized that the in-person method of teaching puts a severe limitation on my ability to do that.

The more people I can help to become drummers and experience the joy of drumming, the happier I will be.

That’s the real reason behind what we’re doing here. Using courses and the online world as the media, we can help many more people experience the happiness that the drums can bring. For me, that means I’m doing something good in the world.

Hear Their Stories, Feel Their Passion: The Voices of Our Students



“Developing technique by working on the rudiments is a proven method.”



“Your ability to learn is increased in an immeasurable way by learning to read and write rhythmic notation.”


This ability to maintain one or more repeating patterns with one or more limbs while varying a third limb is called independence”


“When the drumming feels so good, it’s said to be “grooving” or have a deep “groove.”


“Vocabulary is something you play that you want to remember so you can use it again.”
