A PROPRIETARY TEACHING SYSTEM

The 5 Pillars of Drumming™ is our unique framework and it is based on the observation that almost all great drummers have 5 specific foundational drumming skills in common.

IMAGINE: YOU CAN SIT DOWN BEHIND THE DRUMS AND JUST PLAY OFF THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD

Finally, instead of one book or DVD for technique, another for independence and yet a different one for learning to read music, with Drumming for Absolute Beginners, you’ll learn everything you need to play the drums in one place

Imagine one organized course of study (with one trustworthy teacher) where you progressively learn all the key disciplines simultaneously–that’s what you get with Drumming for Absolute Beginners.

You’ll start from Point A: Just starting to play (but a beginner) and move to Point B: Can sit behind the drums and just play, off the top of your head. 

 

Why Drumming for Absolute Beginners Course is different?

LEARN WITH
MARK FELDMAN

Hey Everyone! My name is Mark and I’ve been playing drums professionally for more than 30 years. 

I’ve written articles for Modern Drummer Magazine, and played on recordings for labels like A&M Records. I’ve also played with artists like Alison Krauss, Big Brother and The Holding Company, Letterman bassist Will Lee and many others.

I was even chosen by Neil Peart–the legendary drummer from Rush–as one of the winners of Modern Drummer magazine’s very first drum solo contest!
Since 2009, I’ve taught over 1,000 beginners to sound like real drummers even when they thought they were limited in some way—perhaps they thought they had no talent or were too old or maybe others told them that they couldn’t do it.
 
But I’m here to tell you that all of that is nonsense. It doesn’t matter what your age is and it doesn’t matter if you think you have no talent. 
 
All that matters is that you want to learn. If that sounds like you, then you’ve come to the right place.

BASS GENIE (AUDIO PLAY-ALONG)

10 Killer Bass Lines Recorded with A Metronome

Working with this audio play-along will allow you to ditch the boring metronome, STILL work on your timing and best of all—have fun doing it. 

BASS GENIE’s 10 original bass lines were recorded with a metronome, so as long as you can stay synced with the bass, you’ll be playing in perfect time. Plus, the bass lines progress from slow (64 beats per minute) to relatively fast (148 bpm), so you can work on getting your rock beats “up to speed.”

COMPLETE EIGHTH NOTE ROCK BEATS (E-BOOK)

Every Possible Bass Drum Placement vs. the basic rock hand pattern

If you want to have total freedom with your bass drum within the all-important rock and pop hand pattern of eighth notes on the hi-hat and two and four on the snare, this is the book you want. 

With a total of 255 exercises, every single eighth note placement or combination of bass drum notes that is statistically possible is included here. 

Every. Single. One.

5 ROCK PLAY-ALONGS With NYC's MANCIE

These "Minus-Drums" Rock Songs Let YOU Be The Drummer

When I went into the recording studio with NYC’s MANCIE to make the EP, “Only The Wanted,” I knew that I wanted to make a “real-world” drum play-along that I could share with other drummers.

And with “5 Rock Play-Alongs,” that’s what you’ll get: five great rock songs with the drum tracks removed so that YOU can be the drummer.

MANCIE is a great band–you’ll enjoy playing the drums for them.

 

HERE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE THINGS YOU'LL LEARN...

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY:

"THIS HAS BEEN ONE OF MY BEST CREATIVE LEARNING EXERIENCES"

Mark brings an understanding to his lessons that will help drummers achive a style and skill set that will elevate them to their full potential. His lessons are fun and easy to understand. I highly recommend it to all drummers.

"YOUR VIDEO DEMONSTRATIONS ARE EASY TO FOLLOW"

I had zero drumming knowledge or experience before your course. I'm slowly working through Module 3. With your course, my drumming knowledge is on a steep climb.

"YOU'RE A FANTASTIC TEACHER"

Mark, you're the best! I can't wait until I move beyond the beginner level so that I can take advantage of everything you bring to the table. I'll work hard to get there in the meantime.

"THE BEGINNERS CLASS WAS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE"

and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to learn to play the drums. I can not recommend it enough.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

You might be surprised to learn that you do not need a drum set in order to begin. All you need is a practice pad and a pair of sticks, and you can buy both items for a total of $50 or less.

For a more in-depth explanation, and actual proof that you don’t need a drum set to begin learning, just watch the video below…

Unless you are truly impaired in some way by your age, then you’re not too old. The idea that you have to start playing music when you are very young is simply a myth. There have been scientific studies done that indicate people can successfully learn to play music later in life. 

Is there research to show that younger people may learn things faster? Yes, there is. But that certainly doesn’t mean that those above 40, 50, 60 or even older can’t learn. 

Many of our students are over 50 and having a blast learning to play the drums.

More info on this is contained in the video below…

The idea that only people with some sort of natural gift can learn to play the drums (or any instrument) is another myth that science has disproven. There are several books that address this including The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle and Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell.
