Fredric Thomsen2_n Richard Sandström is like the drummers counterpart to elite athletes – in a good way! Only  “elite musicians” like Richard can play so advanced and tight and still manage to do it in a relaxed manner. It’s a true pleasure to have shared the stage together!

“Why should I take online drum lessons at this place?” Excellent question, my friend. I know how frustrating it can be to feel like you are putting in much time without big rewards in skills. I have made close to all mistakes possible during the 24 years I’ve been playing the drums. And I have practiced well over 10 000 hours. That’s a lot of mistakes. And what I’ve found out along the way is so interesting. Here are a couple of examples of things that have become very clear to me, and that you will learn in the members area of ‘The Drum Set Revolution’:

  • Hard work is much more important than talent. But it’s not enough to work hard, you must also practice smart.
  • The METHOD you use when practicing (the different steps you go through with an exercise) has massive effect on how fast & well you learn things. It’s not enough to just play something for a very long time until muscle memory kick in.
  • Why you should have a huge focus on certain technical exercises and how it will improve everything you will ever play.
  • The fastest way I know to great technique (…and I’ve tried a lot of different ways. A. Lot.)
  • Ear-opening exercises will develop your groove & time.
  • Clear, logical, step-by-step systems can develop your rhythmical understanding, technique & vocabulary at the same time.

…and much, MUCH more…   If you feel like you wonder about these, or any other, things when it comes to your drumming and how to develop it, I strongly believe you will find all those answers after you become a member at this site. BUT you will have to practice to develop. I can hand you all the tools in the world, but it really doesn’t matter if you won’t put in the time needed behind the drums. I just want to make that very clear. Hard Work + Smart, Concentrated Time Practicing = Amazing Results. Hope to see you inside the members area, where the fun really begins.
