What You’ll Learn:

How to Read Music - It seems like it'd be really hard to learn this, right? Guess what? It's not. We'll show you how.

Technique - You need to know how to hold the sticks, what kind of movements to make with your hands, etc. Yup. We gotcha.

How to Play Beats - Imagine! You're sitting behind the drum kit playing grooves like you hear on your favorite songs! You'll be smiling when you do it!

How to Play Fills- What if you could rip some cool sounding drum fills like your favorite drummers? We'll show you how. Guess what? It's more fun than almost anything!

"Definitely a MUST if you are considering learning how to play the drums. 

Cannot recommend it enough”

“'I have been trying to teach myself drums on and off for four years, and was about to really give up when I finally gave in and registered for the group class here. 

In the first session, I already understood more than I did during the previous four years.”

Tom Leger

5 star review on Yelp

"After the first day of class, I knew drumming would be a permanant part of my life.

If you're on the fence about whether to take this class or not, this is me pushing you over to the "Hell Yes!" side. The grass is definitely greener there."

"BANG is awesome. I just finished the group class and it was incredible. 

These guys just want you to enjoy the drums as much as they do.”

I am totally amazed at my progress”

That's right. You get to keep this book that has every single exercise from all four weeks of class in it.

With the book in hand, you'll have the information you need to practice in between classes and work on the stuff you learned once class is over too.

We created this book especially for the class and that's the ONLY place you can get it!

What's in the book?

1) Music Notation- You'll learn to read quarter notes, eighth notes, triplets and sixteenth notes. And all those exercises are in the book.

2) Technique - Each week we work on different exercises to develop you hand technique, and you'll have all of these at your disposal for whenever you need them. 

3) Beats & Independence - Part of playing beats is the science of learning to play one thing with your hands and something completely different with your feet! All the exercises we use to teach you this are here in the book too.

4) Fill Vocabulary - What do you do when you're not playing grooves? Fills, of course! All of the cool sounding fills are here in this book as well.

About BANG! The Drum School

BANG was founded in 2009 by drummer Mark Feldman, who was one of the winners of Modern Drummer magazine's very first drum solo contest. That competition was judged by Rush's legendary drummer, Neil Peart.

The Absolute Beginners Group Class also began in 2009, but back then, the class took place in a musty basement in an old garage on Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. BANG moved to NYC in 2012, and our new home is a fully gut renovated drumming nirvana with two gorgeous drum studios (the photo, left, is studio 2, where the group class takes place).

The Absolute Beginners Group Class has helped hundreds of new drummers just like you learn how to play the drums.
