Innovative Drum Lessons

Secrets of Jazz Drumming is a course of innovative drum lessons that walk you step-by-step through what I play in an actual live performance. I break down for you what I play, when I play it and why I play it.  Through this series of online drum lessons you'll learn:

  • Dozens of secrets that will transform your Jazz drumming
  • How to "comp" on the drums
  • Drumming with brushes, drum sticks and hands
  • When to use drum sticks or drum brushes
  • How to do drum solos including trading fours and eights
  • How to play 4/4 and 3/4 Swing on the drums
  • Ballad drum brushes playing
  • Latin drumming including Afro-Cuban and Samba drum beats
  • Straight 8ths/ECM drum grooves
  • How to play smooth and swinging drum fills
  • How to listen to the other instruments in the band
  • How to play drums with the other instruments in the band
  • Jazz Standard Song form
  • And much more...


Drum lessons online at other sites usually focus only on how to play drum beats and drum fills. They don't help you learn how to play in real musical situations. My Secrets course and every course change all of that. Now you can learn secrets used by the greatest Jazz drummers and play great with other musicians.

This course is great for intermediate to advanced skill level drummers but is also helpful for a beginning drummer learning Jazz.  If you are looking for beginner drummer lessons, I encourage you to also check out my Intro To Jazz Drumming Course.  

When you finish this course, you'll know what to play and when to play it.  These drum lessons will help you be your best behind the drums in almost any Jazz drumming situation. 

The great part about learning these secrets, is you can use them in any other style of drumming you want to play.  Even if you play Rock or Funk drums, these secrets will make you a more successful drummer. 


The great part about learning these secrets and Jazz drumming, is you can use these new skills in any other style of drumming you want to play.  Even if you play Rock or Funk drums, learning Jazz drums will make you a more successful drummer.
