What’s Inside

The Britchops Foundation Drum Course is much more than a traditional drums/percussion book or CD. It is a set of drums classes that includes, amongst other features, a complete interactive MIDI File Library to play along to and learn the Course step by step.

The Britchops Foundation Drum Course also features practical lesson topics ranging from Setting Up the Drum Kit/Set (inc. Drums, Cymbals and Stands) and Holding your Drumsticks Correctly to Play Basic Strokes (Hands and Feet) and Creating your First Drums Parts inc. Grooves/Beats and Fills in modern music styles, such as Pop/Charts, Rock, Britpop/Indie and Dance/Funk.

It has been specially developed so that any GM (General Midi)/Roland GS MIDI File Player available online with a built-in tempo changer can be used with the Britchops MIDI File Library

For example, the excellent FREEware vanBasco’s MIDI Player, available to download on the Course MIDI File Playback Options page, can demo every exercise on the Britchops Course, at any speed to help teach you the basics of modern drums in a fun, easy to learn, style.

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

Together these practical and interactive features will take you through the very ABC’s of reading drum music so that you can grasp the essential concepts and skills needed to play today’s modern drumming basics for a band, for a Church or just for fun.

The Britchops Foundation Drum Course also features selected Drum Charts in modern drum styles which will allow you to practice your new drumming skills.

Either use it like a hobby/pastime eBook or drumming guide app to read and play in your free time.
