Our STUDENT REVIEWS are at the heart of everything we do!
An online drumming school with 100's of videos and backing tracks is great, but if no one is actually watching you play - how do you know if you're doing it right? And, would you know if you're forming bad habits?
With Icanplaydrums PRO we give you weekly video reviews so you will always be making guided, tangible improvement with one teacher who knows your entire playing journey. With a massive lesson curriculum of over 700 videos, 2,000 backing tracks, and an awesome community of like-minded drummers, you will always have the right resources to help you stay on track.
Get serious about improving.
You've seen the free lesson websites, the youtube videos and the 20 second Instagram licks, but you've been left with no clear guidance on what to do next, in order to achieve your long term goals.
Time to ditch the insta-fluff and get real.
Our online drumming school ensures you will develop tangible technique, reading ability, knowledge of styles, stagecraft, and the confidence to put it all together on stage or in the studio.
You can access over 700 videos and 2,000 backing tracks at any time!
