Student Feedback On Jazz Drumming Courses

Your courses are really instructive and I appreciate many of your ideas and good suggestions which are helpful in Jazz drumming. Besides, it is much fun!
Axel H.
As you probably know, it’s easy to hit a slump in your playing and feel like you’re not making any progress. Your courses have pulled me out of a slump. I finally feel like I’m getting better again!
Evan S.
I’m enjoying the 'straight to the point’ style of the videos.
Stephen J.
I’ve been enjoying your brushes course (Brushes Mastery Course) a lot and found some really useful lessons in there. The new Latin patterns beyond my basic Bossa are a godsend!
Francis O.
It's like there's a million things to play out there, but you have condensed all of JAZZ coordination into a series of lessons (Jazz Drum Set Independence Course)…Once I am done with this, I'll have the foundation to play rhythms like Brian Blade or any drummer for that matter….
Ajay J.
Loving the courses so far. I'm an intermediate drummer who has dabbled in Jazz for years without really knowing what I was doing. The courses give me the structure to approach Jazz methodically. I'm very interested in comping, fills, trading 4s/8s, as well as Latin and Samba. Jazz Drum School is exactly what I was looking for.
Michael W.
I bought the Secrets to Jazz Drumming and love this course. Really well done - lots of great tips - information.
Wayne C.
Thank you VERY much! The lesson on hi-hat really helped me. (Intro To Jazz Drumming Course) It was gold and worth the price of the course alone.
Jonathan M.
Von, your Brazilian course is excellent, thank you! I both enjoyed and learned new things, such as Funk and Partido Alto.  And your use of Samba percussion is "wow"! You really got the feel deeply! Thanks, Von!
Jukka S.
Definitely check out Von’s drum school, everyone. It definitely helped me a ton with my playing.
Justin G.
Von, I just wanted to thank you for creating these amazing courses. The Jazz Drum Comping mini course was also awesome and now I have a good bunch of exercises for practicing every day.

I've never seen a faster improvement in my drumming than with your teaching. Also I'd like to remark about the incredible improvement in my music reading capabilities. You're not only a drum teacher but, most important, a MUSIC teacher.

Your work as a teacher is invaluable for people like me. With very complicated work schedules, it is impossible for me to attend a "traditional" music school, so Jazz Drum School has been a blessing for me and I'm so happy that you can be my teacher, although you're in Japan and I'm in Spain!
Miguel R.
Very inspiring and achievable. A wonderfully designed course (Brushes Mastery Course) that eliminates all the mystery and guesswork associated with the fine art of brushes. I was able to learn and improve immediately. All from an excellent drummer and teacher!
Ernest D.
They're great courses!
Steve C.
I want to express my gratitude for what you do. For me (and I'm sure others), your Intro to Jazz drumming has been practical, and I see my flow coming through. Your platform is simple and direct. I am really enjoying playing your tracks and overall it is a great experience. Thanks!
Richard D.
In addition to the excellent teaching, the web page–including your responsiveness–is awesome.
Richard B.
Thank you for the lessons and your commitment to teaching Jazz drumming with a deep knowledge and kindness. Although I have been through all of the material (In the Jazz Drum Set Independence Course), I am still focused on the first set of patterns.

What I am finding helpful right away is the addition of new patterns that can enhance my ability to play along with my fellow musicians and to be part of the music. I am still fairly new to all of this and am grateful for your support as I learn to swing the beat and engage musically.
Pete F.
The videos are superb quality (Drum Lessons Starter Pack) and how you address the particular points and nuisances that may lead to problematic issues, is outstanding.
Ron D.
Well, Von Baron is just brilliant, so glad I found him and instantly joined up for the courses. Von Baron's videos and PDF's are just excellent and so easy to understand.  He also takes the time to explain in detail how to play.

Von explains step-by-step, how it should be played and performed. He's not rushed like some others on videos where all they want to do is to show how fast they can drum. I recommend signing up with Jazz Drum School 100% because you are in good hands.

I have learned so much in a short space of time but still have a long way to go.  I will be sticking with Von Baron as my main source of learning how to play Jazz. Thank You Von Baron for a fantastic programme.
