"This is a great course, folks. I did it in 2018, and it helped my drumming heaps. If you seriously want to advance your playing abilities, check it out. I highly recommend it."

Gary E.
Professional Drummer. Tasmania, Australia

 

Many drummers spend between 3 to 5 hours a week in the practice room but rarely follow a clear, consistent routine.

Having the right material to work on and staying focused is in the practice room are the biggest challenges every drummer faces.

The DrumMantra 3030 is a cross-training course designed to develop multiple foundational drumming skills all at once. (Don't be fooled by the word foundational, this is an advanced course aimed to "gently catapult" the practitioner into the new rhythmic territory by solidifying crucial "foundational" skills.

Almost all of the exercises can be done on a snare drum and a bass drum (or pads). 

The length, sequence, and even the tempo of each exercise were carefully planned to help develop muscle memory, focus, patience, feel, groove, and technique.

This course aims to deepen your ability to quickly and efficiently express creative and musically appropriate ideas.

“DrumMantra” means rhythmic repetition with focused attention. Each rhythmic “mantra” is played repetitively for a duration required to begin developing muscle memory. When muscle memory of a pattern is achieved, it can be expressed musically with ease and confidence.

 Rich Stitzel

Hi, I'm Rich Stitzel - professional drummer, educator, creator of The DrumMantra system, and author of The Foundational Series and The Primary Series books.

I have been a professional drummer and educator since 1991. Over the past ten years, I have done a deep dive into developing a practice method that truly informs and transforms one's rhythmic depth, time, coordination, and focus. 

I believe creating music at one's highest potential requires understanding rhythmic concepts that transcend musical genre. That is why I created DrumMantra3030.

I am honored to be associated with the following companies:

30 Days

You will receive a play-along lesson every day for thirty days. Each lesson builds on the previous one to keep you on a gradual and steady progression.

30 minutes a day

Each lesson is thirty minutes long. You can do the lesson as many times as you'd like or need. (Some exercises will take a little longer than 30 minutes to perfect.)

"I recommend very highly. You will be working on independence and coordination. You will feel yourself improving with each passing lesson. The focus of the rhythms aligning with each other is a very interesting concept. The exercises are presented in ways that you are not going to experience anywhere else."

There are 2 types of drummers...

Some drummers want to be good but don't have the patience or discipline to make it happen, and even when they do feel motivated and inspired to practice, they have no idea what to work on.

Other drummers take action, have a practice plan, and understand exactly what is important to ensure their practice will be efficient and effective.

Which is more appealing to you? 

Right now, many of us feel uninspired and stuck where we are.

We don't have the patience and focus on achieving the level of understanding we need to play at a higher level.

And because we don't know how to practice, we never get any better. This can be very disheartening and discouraging to a person who wants to be great at drums.

It doesn't have to continue this way! You can start a practice regimen that will show you exactly what to practice and how long.

Imagine a year from today...

Imagine a year from today when you have a fully developed and focused practice routine. You have mastered many advanced concepts that either used to baffle you, or you may have had no idea that those advanced concepts even existed!

You are comfortable and confident behind the kit and know without a doubt that your time is solid, your creative ideas are fluid, and your understanding of time & rhythm is truly on a deeper level.

Imagine being on gigs, sessions, or touring, and you are playing with complete authority in all moments. You are playing without guessing. You are leading from the drum throne with your impeccable time and complete confidence in your groove.

That's the power of a focused and effective practice regimen, and that's what you'll get inside the DrumMantra3030 course!

You can do this - I'm proof that it works, and I've laid it out every step of the way for you!

Start the DrumMantra3030 course today, and you will notice a difference in your playing as early as tomorrow.

Your Virtual Drum Instructor, 

Rich Stitzel
