Hot Chops Drumming training

This step-by-step video programme aims to make drumming as accessible as possible with teaching materials that have proven themselves invaluable time and time again. Each video is accompanied by a printable worksheet containing all the exercises.  Not only do I play through each one, I offer advice on technique, preferred stickings and how to count out the rhythms.

So, why have I done this?

Put simply, I want to help those of you out there who are struggling to get your drumming off the ground. Maybe your job and family life just make it impossible to commit to weekly drum lessons, so you’re trying to do it by yourself. The trouble is, you don’t really know what you’re doing and you’re crying out for some guidance.

What I’ve put together here is a comprehensive set of resources that explore rhythms, patterns and approaches that will kick start your drumming journey. The truth is, if you follow the programme carefully, by the end you’ll be tooled up enough to join a band. 

What Will You Learn?

  • You’re going learn essential patterns that every drummer needs to know in genres like rock, funk, blues and jazz; 
  • With each example, you’ll learn how to play a collection of exciting drum fills you can always rely upon;
  • Together, we’ll explore some of the most common coordination challenges that drummers face, in exercises that get all four limbs moving independently;
  • You’ll learn how to incorporate key rudiments into your playing, making your drumming sound all the more impressive. 

Reading Music

If reading music has always been your stumbling block, then I’m here to help. The truth is, you don’t need to be incredible sight-reader to play the drums but in my opinion, learning a little about music notation opens up a world of opportunity, enhancing your understanding and enjoyment of the instrument . So don’t panic about reading music. I go through everything you need to know from scratch.

But here’s the BIG THING!

Not only do you get all of this, but you also get access to me personally! Yes! Each week I’m available to offer you my feedback and answer your questions. If you post a video I’ll even review your playing and help you out when you get stuck.

Over my 20 years of teaching, I’ve encountered many drummers who after several months or even years of trying to teach themselves, have finally decided to learn how to do it properly. And they all say the same thing, “I wish I done it sooner”.

Because there’s nothing more frustrating than doing the same thing over and over again, only to discover later that you’ve been doing it wrong all along. 

The good news is, that even the very worst “bad habits” are generally EASY to fix with the right coaching. And because I’ve helped so many drummers over the years, I can QUICKLY spot weaknesses, allowing you to make the changes required as soon as possible and begin progressing to the next level!


  • No more doubting yourself…
  • No more learning things the wrong the way…
  • No more blindly trawling through the internet trying to find answers to your questions…
  • No more limiting technique…

Remember – only YOU can take action to become the fantastic drummer you SHOULD be!
