Welcome to Jazz Funk Drumming!

SKILL LEVEL: Beginner - Intermediate

In Jazz Funk Drumming, learn how to play Funk on drums with a Swing feel. It's often called Jazzy Hip Hop drumming, Smooth Jazz or swinging 16ths drumming.

We play this style of drumming on Jazz gigs because it is so similar to Jazz Swing feel. Learning this type of drumming will give you another important tool for your gigging tool box.

This course has 7 drum lesson instruction videos (about 1.5 hours of content), 3 instructor performance videos, 2 lesson PDF's and 2 drumless tracks. These all prepare you for playing swinging 16th note grooves and drum fills in real musical situations.

Learn 10 drumming beats and 3 drum fills. Also learn how to play these drumming beats and drum fills with music. Connecting your drumming to the music will get you more gigs. 

It's a great course to expand your Jazz drumming skills. Spice up your Jazz drumming with a little swinging Funk on drums. 

I'm drummer Von Baron and I designed these online drum lessons based on my 35 years of playing and teaching Jazz drumming professionally. I've performed this style of drumming with many great musicians over the years including Stanley Jordan, Benny Golson, Eddie Henderson and Geoff Keezer.
