Unbelievable Quality and Value
Sam's teaching style is superb. No ego, no whizzing round the kit at lightning speed to show off how good he can play (although he is clearly an extremely accomplished player). The apps have the student's interests at heart right from the word go, whether he/she be novice or professional, and there is a lot of great material to feed on. I bought both apps (Drum Secrets 1 & 2) and am really inspired. The videos are excellent quality and extremely well put together and the associated backing tracks will enable countless hours of practice and honing of skills. Couple that with the fact that it has only cost me £3-quid for both, I am truly staggered at value for money they represent. In my opinion, these really are 'must have' apps for those who are interested in playing the drums!
A great app, great price!
This is a fantastic app with lots of cool ideas, like different rudiments which can then be applied to beats and fills. The app helped me to apply them to my playing by providing some backing tracks of different variations which was really helpful. My timing also improved a fair amount as a result. It was nothing overly new to me as a drummer, who has been playing for 7 years, but none the less, It helped me clean up some of the most basic techniques and gave me some inspiration... Sam is clearly an established drummer who knows what he is talking about and he explains everything clearly so you can't go wrong. I recommend this to any drummer, regardless of how skilled you are. f
I can't wait for the next app!! (from what I here on Twitter, it sounds awesome!!)
Sam is a phenominal teacher!
The way in which he explains his concepts in these videos is undeniably relatable to any drummer. Rookie, veteran - it doesn't matter. There is plenty here for everyone. He gives the foundations and concepts to keep you practising for YEARS in just 10 or so videos. Stuff that will develop everything from technical drumming, to musicality, to theory and everything in between. But most importantly, he does 2 things: teaches you HOW to practise, and constantly adds inspiration, motivation and wisdom to KEEP you practising. Drum secrets 2 is just as good and he offers tonnes of further reading and resources. A truly SPECTACULAR tutor and app. All drum tutors should be in awe of his teaching talent! THANK YOU!! :]
