Start Learning Drums With Drumeo Today! If you've ever dreamed of playing drums, your dream is closer to reality than you might think. There are a variety of ways that you can learn how to play drums easily and affordably.

In the past, drum lessons have been provided by an instructor at a local music shop or their home. Scheduling drum lessons and traveling to the studio can make the training effort challenging and frustrating. Learning how to play drums by an instructor is not only inconvenient, but can also be very expensive over time. Instructor-led lessons can easily cost thousands of dollars just to learn the basics.

Begin Drumming



$49.95 one-time fee

Begin Drumming provides a lot of distracting sales pitch and not a lot of product. While priced at only $49.95 you get what you pay for here. Jim McCarthy is the instructor and founder of Begin Drumming and has 20 years teaching experience and an advanced degree in percussion performance but we're not sure from where.

The training includes a 12 month membership to his website where you receive your training on-line. You'll also receive 198 separate audio files which you download on your time. These audio files are to be downloaded to your iPod or MP3 at the speed you select to assist with your learning. Given that you receive your training on-line we weren't sure how you'd set that up next to your drum set.

In the event that you are not happy with your membership you may return within 8 weeks for a full refund.

All in all we weren't that impressed with Begin Drumming. From the unprofessional website, to the heavy sales pitch, along with the "membership" and no physical training tools. Perhaps if you are without a DVD player this might be the only option for those wanting to learn how to play the drums.

However, other methods of learning the drums have recently become available that are both flexible and cost effective. You can now find good quality drum lesson instruction on the internet.

The format of drum lessons that you can purchase over the internet include DVD's, CD's, downloaded instructions, and online training videos. With these type of lessons, you can learn the drums at your own pace and on your own schedule. One thing you should keep in mind is that not all drum training is the same or effective. Many companies make lofty promises to train you quickly and with little work.

Before you buy one of these packages of drum lessons, you should consider a number of items. Some of these include:

  • Who's selling the drum lessons and what will you receive? If you're expected to watch a video from your PC and then turn to play the drums, is that going to work for you?
  • Cost. How much will you have to pay for your drum lessons? How does that cost compare to other top providers?
  • Return policy. If you aren't satisfied with your drum lessons, can you get your money back? has reviewed and ranked the best drum lesson systems available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right drum lessons for you!
