SKILL LEVEL: Beginner - Advanced

Drumming With Brushes

It's estimated that only 15-20% of all drummers can drum with brushes. From year-to-year the need for skilled brushes players is actually increasing.  This is because of their use in many styles of music. 

Drumming Brushes

Drumming brushes have wire bristles that can create infinite textures, tone colors and dynamics for music. Drum sticks on the other hand, are limited in the number of sounds they can make. 

Drumming with brushes will fill that sound gap in your playing.  Learning this valuable skill will improve your drumming and get you more opportunities to play.

This course is great for the beginning drummer, intermediate and advanced drummer.  I also designed my drum lessons to help you play brushes in any style of drumming.  

Drumming with brushes isn't just for Jazz anymore too.  Learn how to use brushes in Funk, Hip-Hop, Latin, Pop, Jazz and many other styles of drumming. Learn all of the techniques, patterns, grooves and fills I use so you too can be successful drumming with brushes. 

The Brushes Mastery Course is the most complete collection of online drum lessons for drumming with brushes every created.
