Welcome to OLD, often described as the friendliest, most helpful community of drummers online. We’re here to help you learn our shared passion – the drums – and we’re determined to have fun along the way.
We launched on July 1st, 2004 with Nate Brown’s original goal of filling the void in online resources for drum teachers. We provided drum beats and sheet music for drum teachers to print and keep their students learning and excited about learning.
As the site continued to grow, we learned that many people didn’t have access to a private drum teacher and were using our resources to learn directly online. As a response, we launched video lessons, forum and sheet music designed to provide resources directly to students as well as to teachers.
Currently, we are continuing to grow our team of talented OLDsters to provide drum sheet music, an unparalleled drum forum community, top-knotch drum lessons and articles from the top drummers in today’s scene.
Mentioned in the London Metro’s Novemeber 2007 Net Results as “the ideal place to find out about drumming.”
Recommended in the book “Drums For Dummies (2nd Edition)” as a “great online resource… dedicated to drummers and drumming.”
