    Just signed up for the week trial, let’s see how this goes! looking forward to learning and improving.

  3. nick aufiero says:

    Took a 6 year break from drumming while I was active duty in the Navy. I have literally never taken a lesson in my 8 years of drumming but I am happy to say you convinced me otherwise. I started a 7 day trial just now and I’m excited to see where it leads me. Appreciate your hard work and dedication to the dream!

  4. Angelo Rinella says:

    Hi Stephen, I’ve been checking out a lot of your videos! Hand exercises are really what i need. I have been playing on and off for a number of years but can’t seem to get my fingers and hands to flow smoothly,so i would like to try your exercises THANKS Angelo.

  5. Dan Booth says:

    Hoping this website can teach a complete beginner from scratch!

    • Stephen says:

      Hey Dan, Glad to have ya in the program! And absolutely it can…you will want to start in the Beginner section. Once you log in click on the “I’m a Beginner” text and it will take you to the 3 tracks you should start with. You may also want to check out the current lesson track I am teaching entitled “Hand Technique”. It is an in depth look at all of the basic techniques and strokes you will need for a solid drumming foundation. And it goes without saying, if you have any questions just let me know!

  6. Dougie says:

    Thirty years ago I wanted to be a drummer after watching a drummer in a local band 4 nights a week. I bought a set but after three months, I gave up because I had no idea what I was doing (and work was taking up a great portion of my time). I’m sure I was the king of flamming and being out of time with no guidance (and only an occasional Modern Drummer magazine to refer too). Back then, there were not any online courses like Stephens. Fast forward 30 years, I am now 56, I re-located cross country to a new town, and while working my new, I met a guitarist and a bass player (old like me) who play together every week at a very small club. My wife told the bass player I was once a drummer (clearly I was never a drummer) when we went to see them play. I was asked me to join these guys and a woman singer that mainly do acoustic since they don’t have a drummer. I said yes, got myself a new kit this week, even though I haven’t touched a stick in 30 years, and stumbled upon Stephens site last weeks. Here’s hoping (actually praying) that this old guy can, once and for all, be a fraction of the drummer he wanted to when he was a kid, without being overwhelmed. Thank you for this site.

    • Stephen says:

      Hey Dougie!

      Man, you can do anything you set your mind to! You would be surprised how many members are in the same place you are in life.

      Let me know if you need some help getting started with things. Sounds like you have some pretty specific goals and needs and I want to make sure you hit them!

  7. Roger Parkinson says:

    I began drumming in 1978,and while I’ve learned much since then, my biggest nemesis has been organizing my practice time to benefit the most. You are the one online educator who stresses properly managing practice time, so I signed up for the upcoming “Art Of Practice” program.
    In watching your videos on youtube Stephen, you convinced me of your strengths as a player as well as an educator,so I’ve joined up for a year. It seems that the time is right to dive in with focus and conviction and despite my age(59) I am going to give this my best effort!!
    Thanks,Roger

    • Stephen says:

      Hey Roger…you’re in great company! There are a lot of members in their prime years that have decided to become the drummer they always thought they could be.

      Let me know how I can help!

  8. Paul says:

    I love your lessons on Drumeo Stephen and when I heard about your TAOP course I immediately signed up. The whole “how to practice” issue is something I’ve been struggling with for ages. Getting organised with goals and lesson plans is exactly what I need now, and that appears to be core to your whole approach…so I decided to go all in and become a fully paid up member. Can’t wait to get started.

  9. Steven,

    Been a big fan of your youtube lessons and excited to have the opportunity to get more detailed instruction and furthering my drumming career.

    With regards….Daryel

  10. Stephen,

    I’ve been looking for an instructor in Toronto for a while now but couldn’t bring myself to commute to pay for every half hour, sitting down with guys who are often distracted / not entirely there for me in a personalized way. I took to searching the Internet for a solution and I found your website. Today I booted up the 30 Days to Better Doubles video that you emailed me and printed out the materials. One day in and I can safely say that you have already provided me with the best advice I’ve ever received as a drummer. I’m playing in a band in the city that is trying to make it on the indie scene and have been stressing lately over the idea that I may not be good enough to get us there. I’ve been playing for years but I’ve got sort of a drummers writing block lately. Your demeanour and the way you lay out goal-oriented lesson plans is phenomenal!

    Didn’t have much of a choice man.. have to know what you have to offer on the site!

    Looking forward to learning from and interacting with you in the future. Finally my playing will feel like it is a journey again, goodbye stasis!

    Cheers,
    Adam

    • Stephen says:

      So glad you found the site Adam.

      You definitely have what it takes for the band. You just need to get specific with what needs work.

      Email me if you need some direction. Looking forward to seeing you grow!

  11. Patrick says:

    Hi Stephen,
    I’m glad to have finally make the jump to signup and get on-board with some structured learning.
    Up to now, your YouTube videos have been very helpful in so many ways.
    Can’t wait to get started.

    God Bless,
    Patrick

  12. Kristeta says:

    It’s always been inspiring watching your lessons on Drumeo, Stephen :) ~ I’m always passionate about trying new approaches when learning to play an instrument. Playing the drum kit is quite new to me as I am more into piano, singing and strings. I can’t wait to start learning from your well designed lesson plans. :)

  14. Michelle says:

    I signed up. I like the goal oriented lessons a lot, and Stephen you’re just pretty awesome. :)

    • Stephen says:

      Well, I can say the same about you Michelle ;^)
      Seeing how you’re interacting with the lessons at the level you are is inspiring.
      Let me know if you have any questions at all!

  15. Anna says:

    I just signed up for a 7day trial.
    I watched Stephen @Drumeo (when I still had the subscription) and I must say I rarely see a teacher who is so inspiring, dedicated and a good pedagogue at same time.
    Lately I’m struggling with just about anything in my life (drums too) and drums help me cope. So if this works I’m going to sell my lil bro and my big bro to be able to pay for the lessons ;).

    • Stephen says:

      Hey Anna…I’m really happy to have you be a part of The Shed! Hopefully you will find some inspiration here.

      As well, you may want to pick up a book called Effortless Mastery by Kenny Werner. It’s all about loving your playing, enjoying the process of learning an instrument, and having your playing be an outlet instead of a pain point.

      Let me know if you have any questions!

  16. James says:

    Hey Stephen: I just signed up for the yearly membership. I am very inspired by your teachings and enthusiasm for our instrument. I recently purchased your blow-out sale on your site (Everything and “The Kitchen Sink” ) and I’ve been working through the “Weak Hand Boot-Camp” exercises for the past two weeks while on vacation. I’ve got the patterns memorized and I’m working on control and dynamics through the exercises. I am already starting to see the improvements in my playing. That purchase is what made my decision to become a yearly member. The high quality instruction, the breakdown of the parts and your ease of explanations of the more challenging pieces all make it worthwhile and inspiring. Thank you for your dedication to the drumming community! Peace and God Bless!

  17. Chance Schuman says:

    After a while of watching your youtube channel I finally decided to sign up and I’m super proud of my choice! Can’t wait for my drumming to feel streamlined and guided! Thanks for all the work you put into this website! Cheers!

  18. Steven Hassenpflug says:

    Just watched a video on youtube featuring 10 of your must know drum fills. My friend Bob was a guest sitting all the way to your left. I watched the whole video and went back to see your Jam session at the begnning because it just kicked ass, then realized you used all the fills taught in the video and it sounded great.

    Never had a lesson, starting at the beginning, here we go.

  19. Nathan Randleman says:

    Looking forward to giving this a shot!

  20. Linda Johnson says:

    Retired from the U.S. Air Force and civilian careers at 57 years old and decided to take up drumming…been at it for 7 1/2 years now. I’m in two concert bands, a swing band, and two Dixieland bands. I’ve watched several of your YouTube videos and like your teaching method. I feel like I could be progressing more quickly if I incorporated many of the things you talk about in your videos…organization, analyzing technique, etc. Practice time is valuable and I want to make the most of it. Looking forward to your lessons. Thanks!

    • Stephen says:

      Hey Linda…first off, thanks so much for your service! Secondly…I couldn’t be more excited to have you in here. I’ve got your questionnaire in my inbox and I’ll get back to you in the next day or so on my thoughts!

  23. Frank Caputo says:

    I am in the Army and have 4 kids so my days are long with little time to focus on things I want to do rather than all the things I have to do. I tried DRUMEO a while back but found it slightly unorganized (fire hose method) (then I had to sell the drums but was able to buy a new set 2 weeks ago). When I heard Stephen say how focused and streamlined his method was I couldn’t pass it up, additionally, the reviews were phenomenal.
    I am looking forward to learning this universal instrument, I have always wanted to play.
    I hope your system works for me Stephen, I will certainly give it an honest effort.

    I can’t wait to dive in brother!

    • Stephen says:

      Glad to have you in here Frank! Let me know if you need ANY help getting started or organized with the material. That’s what I’m here for. We need to make sure you get a solid plan with goals first and then get to work.

  25. Don Lorntzen says:

    Stephen,
    I have been watching in the background of your online lessons for awhile now. Now i am your student! I have wanted to learn to play the drums since i was a kid. I have friends that lived out their rock dreams in 80’s hair band like Warrant.
    I do take personal one on one lessons with a great kid. I am just not really happy with my progress. I am able to play in time and some jazz beats, some rock beats, but still have yet to learn a song. I will start with your beginners course and see how it works for me.I have just signed up for your yearly lesson plan. I am not looking to be a big rock star but do want to have the confidence and skills to jump up on a set and play with any of my friends, at church or just a random jam at the local bar. One question i have for you is should i continue with my current drum teacher and will it confuse me more from you style of teaching if i do?

    • Stephen says:

      Hey Don…honored to have you be in the DBD program! To your question…some keep an in person teacher and check in with them and some don’t. It just depends on what you need. Many have found they do better with just the online lessons or just the in person teacher. I would try it out and see what works best for you, adjusting as you go. If it feels like too much, you’re going to need to let something go. Glad to have you in here Don!

  26. Thinus van As says:

    Hi Stephen, thanks for the great work. Took the plunge and bought the annual sub. Looking forward! Regards from sunny South Africa. Thinus.

  27. Erwin says:

    Hi Stephen, I appreciate your DRUM FILL LESSONS as well as your manner of explanations and so I jumped on your train now. Looking forward with pleasure and hope I can debug my drumming from some of my best skilled wrongdoings :)

  28. Robert French says:

    I have been playing guitar for the past few years and was bored. I was youtube surfing recently and saw your videos on the Pat Boone/ Debbie Boone. Next thing I know, I bought a kit and am playing drums again… This should be a fun year!

  29. Paul says:

    Hi Stephen,

    Just started with you guys today. Looking forward to the lessons.

    Cheers
    Paul

  30. Frank Durant says:

    Hey Stephen,
    Upon a previous email I informed you that I am a come back to the art. It has been quite a few years to being dedicated to the drums, so getting those muscles back is going to be work. I am gracious for the emailed programs like the two best which are Thirty days to better singles and doubles. So now you got me. I’m signed on for the year and really going to move forward with programming myself and put my hands and feet to the grind stone. Thanks for being you because your style is a propellant. Looking forward to opening up your full program to expand my skills.

  31. Jeffery Castille says:

    I’ve always been interested in drumming, almost to a point of an obsession. Most people watch the front man when they go to a concert; I watch the drummer. lol Anyway, at the ripe old age of 58, I’m now retired and have some free time, so we will find out if an old dog can learn a new trick.

  32. Edgar says:

    Just joined. Had my first drum set at 8 years old but the death of my grandfather forced me to move with my parents and they hated the noise so, the drums were replaced by a guitar. I can play the guitar, bass, and a little keyboard but my Latin grooves are in my hands and feet. Yep, the drums were calling. My kids all play music and taking lessons as well. At 58 yrs old, yes it is my time! Ready to learn from the best.

    • Stephen says:

      I love it man! Don’t worry…you’re in good company here. Lots of members in your same situation. As a multi instrumentalist, you should pick up some things quicker than some would. Let me know if you’ve got questions as you go!

  33. Lonnie says:

    Your Josh Waitzkin speech sold me. I just started at the end of April and have made decent progress. One thing I have learned, it is always easier to learn when you don’t have to worry about putting together your own lessons/workouts/whatever. Let the experts do that for you so you can concentrate on the skill.

  34. Rich says:

    Played for 5 years off and on with various small bar bands. Never had drum lessons, but played learned trumpet in band and percussion in pep band. I got to a point where I stopped played because I couldn’t play the complex pieces closer to the originals. Started your free “30 days to better singles” (and doubles) to see if I wanted to get back into the groove and have seen vast improvement in some of the bad areas in my playing. I look forward to learning and getting back into it.

    • Stephen says:

      lad to have ya Rich! Let me know if I can help get you up and running or if you have any questions as you work through the material. That’s what I’m here for!

  35. Eber says:

    Just joined from Brazil… I believe I am a different kind of case. I am 37, and had never touched a drumset before in my life. But for over 20 years, played airdrums, drums with just simple pieces of wood in my hands, anything that resembled actually playing. Two months ago, bought a Roland TD17KV set. Liked so much that started playing 3-4 hours everyday, always playing along with some 80s and 90s rock songs. Playing so much every single day has brought me today to a level that must be really a beginners level, but for me is very impressive: I can play 145 songs from a specific Spotify playlist that I created to play. I just cant believe I am actually doing it!! Cool songs by Green Day, Nirvana, RATM, Pearl Jam, Creed, Nickelback, Daughtry… I mean… very nice! Of course, I must not be playing them 100% correctly, but I just said all this to show to future new students that everything is possible! And I believe that now I will become a real drummer, not just someone who plays along with some songs! Thanks Stephen!!

    • Stephen says:

      Proud to have you in here Eber! Way to start drumming without having a kit..that “virtual” practice indeed does help. Let meknow if you have questions as you go my friend!

  36. Dennis says:

    I watched you alot on YouTube, i admired how you explain all the things and you’re doing a great job! I’m glad to take part of your class!
