The drumscore.com Lesson area is a collection of articles desinged to help improve all areas of your playing. Articles are split up into different categories based on difficulty ratings and basic topics such as rudiments and theory. You can navigate these categories using the drop down menu above.
Each category is then split up into topics. These topics include: grooves, fills, exercises, phrasing and many other areas. These are then split into sub categories to further help you find what you are looking for. Related lessons are linked within most pages and tags are used to further aid the ability to search for a specific topic. You are also able to use the search bar located to the top right of every page to find a lesson.
Our lesson area takes a 'conceptual' approach to teaching a part. This means that you will often find an idea presented for construction of a groove or fill, allowing you to both learn the given parts as exercises then develop the part to suit your own playing style. In many lessons short phrases or example pieces are provided to demonstrate practical uses of the part. Full example pieces presented in standard drumscore sheet music format are currently being worked on for all levels. We already have some Level 1 pieces up.
New lessons are added daily so be sure to check back regularly. If you have suggestions for improvements to existing material or for things you'd like to see covered please email us on
