WHY DO I NEED ESSENTIAL PERCUSSION?

I get paid to hang out with drummers (my friends) because I play percussion... and in many cases, have become their obvious number one deputy when they get another gig, get sick, elope, go to prison...

DRUMMERS!
If you really want to give yourself the best chance of being in demand and working consistently (for money), you owe it to yourself to get this stuff together.

If you are out there playing now, this will be simple for you. Most musicians you want to work with CAN'T STAND those 'super chops' you're working on. And guess what? These simple techniques will take you much less time to get together and will pay you back.

Having this knowledge puts you ahead of all the players who dismiss percussion as easy, or a joke. You won't believe the amount of amazing drummers who can't play a tambourine in time for 4 bars, let alone a whole song (maybe you are one).

 

Love playing music with people, and travelling? Who doesn't? 

Learning this makes you a better (and more useful) Drummer, and that, gives you a better chance of making it happen.  

It's no secret that major recording studios are closing all the time and there's less and less studio work around.

So it only leaves the most desirable players left. How to make yourself more desirable? Tool up!

It's a simple case of economics. It's quicker for 1 player to overdub some perc parts on a kit session AND it's saves the artist and labels expensive studio time. Not to mention you get more chance of work eg: the acoustic radio session, where full drum kit isn't appropriate... and others would be left at home. 

'ESSENTIAL PERCUSSION FOR DRUMMERS'
is an online FREE video course

What The Pros Say

Here are some nice words from other pros (for credibility reasons)!

Very Much Worth Checking Out!

“I’ve played drums for over 25 years. Despite owning some congas, tambourines, and plenty of shakers I still never felt confident playing percussion on recordings. Watching Toby’s essential percussion videos immediately gave me a new found confidence - the confidence that comes with simply knowing what you’re doing. The idea of playing percussion is now an exciting one rather than an intimidating one. Thanks Toby!!

Toby Goodman Essential Percussion For Drummers.png

Hello! 

Hi! I'm Toby Goodman - A professional Drummer/Percussionist based in London, UK. I've been lucky enough to make my living as a musician for over 15 years (you'll see a few of my credits below).

As a drummer, I've always loved playing percussion and incorporating it into my kit playing. But... I always struggled finding resources that explained hand percussion to drummers in the context of popular music. 

So I created 'Essential Percussion For Drummers'. Easily accessible fly on the wall lessons to help drummers get started with percussion. 

Here are a few people I've worked with...
