We’re 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 weekly drum beats and sheet music for drum teachers to 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, our drum forum and sheet music designed to provide resources directly to students as well as to teachers.
Currently, we are continuing to grow our talented team and content selection to provide premium drum sheet music, top-notch drum lessons and inspiring articles to both educate and motivate learners and teachers.
