Description:

Beginning Drums the fun informal approach for all ages! Designed to quickly prepare the absolute beginner to join a rock, blues or county band by skipping the formalities & jumping right into the real beats used in today’s popular dance bands. The fun approach to beginning drums! Learn the most widely used beats for rock, country, blues & pop styles. Paul Murski will transform the complete beginner into a formidable drummer in only a few practice sessions. There is no drum instruction like this on the market today because Paul starts right off showing you how to play your first song. It’s designed to get you ready to play in your first band, & do it in the quickest, most professional way possible. You will learn 10 beats for basic rock, country 2-step, waltz, blues, punk, swing, reggae, polka, hard rock, rap boogie woogie, rhythm-n-blues, slow rock, reggae, disco & swing, but more importantly, you will learn which beat is appropriate for which song, & how to determine which beat to use for any song that your band wants to play. On the video, Paul jams with his family band & his oldest son brings in his punk band to show Dad how to teach the punk-rock style. Perfect for all ages, Paul even brings in his 4 kids (ages 6-14) so that they can show you what they’ve learned from this great drum teacher. If you’d like to skip all the formalities & go right to playing the drums, then this video is for you! Oh yea, there’s a surprise lesson at the end of the video! *What kind of drum set & accessories do I need to get started? Answer: You don’t actually need any drums at all. Paul shows you how to set up cardboard boxes to practice on, so all you have to buy is a pair of drum sticks. When you’re ready for a real drum set, any beginning set will do fine. (new or used) Most companies make small sets for kids. You need: a kick drum (bass drum), snare drum, high hat (symbol), ride symbol, a small tom tom (no floor tom necessary) & a pair of drum sticks. *What am I really getting myself into if I think I’d like to try the drums? Answer: You have to learn to do 3 slightly different things at the same time. Your right hand is doing one thing, your left is doing another, while your foot is doing another. The good news is that Paul has taken all the tedium out of this "juggling" act, by giving your the symbol first, adding bass drum next (then letting you practice those together till you get comfortable, then (& only then) adding the snare drum to the first two things. Your television screen is split into 4 quadrants, allowing you to see what’s going on with each piece at all times. So easy! No tedium!

Amazon.com Review happy it was my very first dvd, November 2, 2008 By desert wonderer (san francisco) I am so glad I first bought this DVD before any other. I had never played drums before and this DVD showed to play along (basic grooves) with some of my favorite songs. Thanks to that, I did not give up because I was not overwhelmed from the start. I have to say that this DVD made it easier for me to learn from the other DVD. I recommend it if you are an absolute beginner and if you are the type of person who gets easily discouraged if something seems too challenging.

Amazon Review 2 of 2 people found the following review helpful: Great DVD!!, May 20, 2006 Reviewer: Spring Sweet "loves music." (lompoc, california United States) - See all my reviews This is actually one of the first things i got when i first started playing. and its great! It really teaches you a lot easilly and straight to the point. This dvd teaches you how to play the basic beats to all kinds of music ranging from 50's rock to punk to reggae to even swing! and at the end it even has a suprise drum thing for you to learn and also towards the very end explains how to even use cardboard boxes and even your hands and legs to play the drums. even if you are just thinking about getting a drumset its still worth getting.

Amazon Review 4 of 5 people found the following review helpful: Easy and fun - just what drums should be!, March 14, 2006 Reviewer: David S. Burt (Philadelphia) - See all my reviews Grab some sticks and cardboard boxes, the whole family will have a blast, tapping along to Paul Murski's light and amusing approach to learning basic drums. All of the basic beats are covered here, including rock, 3/4 and country. And it's all in a conversational fashion that is not condescending or pushy. The split screen style allows you to easily see what each limb is supposed to be doing. His tips are helpful, and he even gets his sons involved. There's a surprise lesson at the end as a bonus involving one of our favorite genre's - surf. We don't want to work, we just want to bang on the drum all day. Thanks, Paul!

Amazon.com review Great Product , December 17, 2007 By David Basham - See all my reviews Starts right out with some good drumming. Easy to follow and understand. I feel like it is worth the money. If you learn the beats and practice, it could have you playing in a band pretty quickly.

Drum lessons, June 1, 2009 By Steve D. Mannes (Suriname, South America) My boy has picked up a lot from this Video and I highly recommend it. After hearing/seeing the first film about the Rock rithm he could play the rithm himself! We will continue with the other rithms.

Great for Beginners, January 8, 2008 By Julieanne (Florida) Surprisingly, as advertised, it COULD get anyone playing a drum set right off the bat. Wish I'd had it when I first started out, but I derived useful tips and ideas from it even now. I couldn't recommend it any more highly for anyone who wants to be able to just sit down and play right off the bat, without taking lessons, and with or without the ability to read music.
