What’s Inside

The Britchops Foundation Drum Course is much more than a written drums/percussion book. It is a 130+ page Course of drum classes that features interactive tools, such as a complete MIDI File Library.

Practical lesson topics range from Setting Up the Drum Kit/Set (inc. Drums, Cymbals and Stands) and Holding your Drumsticks Correctly to Playing Basic Drum Strokes (Hands and Feet) and Creating your First Drum Parts inc. Grooves/Drum Beats and Fills in todays contemporary drum styles, such as Pop/Charts, Rock, Britpop/Indie and Dance/Funk.

The Course has also been specially developed so that any MIDI File Player available online with file playback and built-in tempo changer, can be used with the Britchops Course MIDI File Library.

For example, the excellent FREEware vanBasco’s MIDI Player can demonstrate each exercise, at any speed and teach you the basics of modern drumming in a fun, easy to learn, style.

When using this FREE MIDIware with the Britchops Course, your confidence will build with the tempo of each exercise, groove or fill. Or, you can simply learn ‘by ear’!

Together these practical and interactive features will take you step-by-step through the very ABC’s of reading drum music to help you grasp the essential concepts and skills needed to play today’s modern drumming. The Britchops Course also features an example Drum Chart by 90′s Britpop Band Oasis, below.
