I'm Rich Stitzel, 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 method of practice that truly informs and transforms one's rhythmic depth, time, coordination, and focus. 

I believe creating music at one's highest potential requires the practitioner to develop a level of technical ability that unlocks the creative expression. The deeper we understand, the deeper we express.

 

The DrumMantra3030 is a course that at first focuses on the foundations of subdivision, accents, and pulse movement, and builds into playing rhythmic phrase shapes, polymetric coordination, and odd time signatures.  

The sequencing of each day's exercises was meticulously organized and tested by a group of professional drummers from around the world. 

The play-alongs, videos, and 200-page downloadable pdf book provide everything you need to stay focused. 

I can say with confidence that the 3030 will address the core issues in your playing and quickly take you the next level. With a deeper understanding of time, rhythm, phrasing, coordination, odd time signatures, and polymetric relationships, your playing will reach a whole new level.

The 3030 is an effective and powerful practice tool that you will use long after the thirty day course has ended. 

 

 

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

Staying focused is one of the biggest challenges of practice followed by the constant wondering whether the material being worked on is the “right stuff.”

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 advance the practitioner into new rhythmic territory by solidifying crucial "foundational" skills.

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

The length and sequence of each exercise was carefully crafted to develop muscle memory, focus, patience, feel, groove, and technique.

The goal of this course is to deepen the 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 in a musical way with ease and confidence.

Transform the way you practice.

The DrumMantra 3030 is a premium training course designed to strengthen your fundamental sense of time, rhythm, phrasing, coordination, odd time signatures, polymetric relationships, and much more… Develop an effective practice regimen with the 3030 and begin playing with more confidence and mastery today.

30 Days

You receive a completely planned out lesson every day for thirty days. Each day has activities that build on the day before to keep you on a gradual, yet steady course of improvement.

30 minutes a day

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

FEATURES OF THE COURSE:

  • You will become very comfortable in three different time signatures: 4/4, 3/4, and 5/4
  • You will hone your technique by working through five different sticking patterns - 
    RLRL, LRLR, RRLL, LLRR, and RLRR LRLL
  • You will become comfortable with all accent permutations and pulse displacements.
  • You will learn to "unglue" yourself from the need to hear downbeats to keep your time by utilizing the “Moving Click” Exercises in 3 different time signatures
  • You will experience a comprehensive and in-depth coordination study of the 3:4 and 5:4 polymetric relationships
  • You will master advanced phrasing concepts and rhythmic reading
  • Progressive coordination between the hands and one foot
  • Three “meditations,” which are exercises that last around 35 minutes without stopping
  • Develop the ability to discern a 1bpm change in tempo through exercises designed to train your internal clock
  • Drum set modifications

Drummers from around the world are changing their playing with the DrumMantra3030 Course.

 

“It has been a very transformative and educational experience.

You will be a better musician. If you take the DrumMantra philosophy to heart you will definitely notice improvement in your awareness and perception of time & rhythm, and life”

-Bradley G., Professional Drummer and Educator, Winnepeg, Manitoba, Cananda

 

“This course isn’t about fancy licks, wild drumming, or double bass thunderstorms. It focuses on timing, flow, and learning to play relaxed and with dynamic control.

All the exercises are designed in a way, that will help you discover things in your personal playing that you can deepen and should really work on”

-Lukas L., Professional Drummer & Educator, Zurich, Switzerland

 

“This program is phenomenal! It will push you and make you realize what you are uncomfortable doing. Rich is a great author and human being. I really enjoyed the play-alongs. You can become engaged in what you’re doing. My being and mental state was at a very calm level when I would practice. This 30 minute exercise was the best part of my day”

-Josh B., Professional Drummer and Educator, Denver, Colorado

 

"I recommend very highly. You will be working on independence and coordination. You will feel yourself improving with every passing lesson. 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.”

-Carlos P., Professional Drummer and Educator, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain
