"Seriously ... wow"

"Thank you for a really accurate transcription ... Seriously though, wow. I have been coming to you first now when I am looking for a transcription."

Michael David Garcia (Austin Music School)

"As close to perfrect as possible"

“I’ve been playing for over 37 years and come to this site for sheet music on songs that my band wants to play and me to learn. The transcriptions are very accurate and really help me nail down the song, as close to perfect as possible. Not every site gives you accurate drum sheet music!"

Maarten P.

"... wealth of knowledge at one's fingertips"

"... with the wealth of knowledge at one’s fingertips on the site, with other cool lessons from top-rate teachers, it’s an obvious choice to stay a loyal member. Thank You"

"... access to high quality drum charts when they're needed"

“Just wanted to say that as a teacher it’s vital to have access to high quality drum charts when they’re needed. Having a large enrollment I don’t have the time to chart out everything for students. I need them on hand as required, when required. So a big, big thank you to Online Drummer and the resources made available. It’s guys like you that help so much in making sure drum education moves ahead. Keep up the good work.”

Gregg (Gregg's Drumming Tuition)

"Your sheet music is excellent"

“I think your sheet music is excellent. I recently helped a band out by having to stand in and was able to get 90% of their material off your site. They were blown away how I could turn up and sight read the music. I thought the music was clearly laid out and very easy to sight read.”

Andy Wood

"I send them to onlinedrummer.com"

“As a professional traveling and teaching musician, I like to keep my students busy and well referenced when I am not available for them. I send them to onlinedrummer.com. Nate and his crew always keep it real! Thanks guys!”

Jeff Wheeler (Performer & Educator, Half Moon Bay, CA)

"The only site I encourage ..."

“The only site I encourage my students to check out !! and plenty of tools on site to inspire them to be inquisitive.”

Dave Helman (DaveHelman.com)

"... you'll see how good these guys are."

"The notation is drum only, and not cluttered with other instruments parts. Other sites get some of these important points correct, but not all. That’s not acceptable in my book. Just compare apples to apples, and you’ll see how good these guys are. Rock On!”

Jim Moore (Sarasota)
