WHY DO I NEED ESSENTIAL PERCUSSION?

BECAUSE IT'LL HELP YOU GET MORE GIGS!

I get paid to hang out with drummers (my friends) because I play percussion... and in many cases, have become their obvious number one deputy when they get another gig, get sick, elope, go to prison (yes all of those things have happened).

DRUMMERS!
If you really want to give yourself the best chance of being in demand and working consistently (for money), you owe it to yourself to get this stuff together.

If you are out there playing now, this will be simple for you. Most musicians you want to work with CAN'T STAND those 'super chops' you're working on. And guess what? These simple techniques will take you much less time to get together and will pay you back.

Having this knowledge puts you ahead of all the players who dismiss percussion as easy, or a joke. You won't believe the amount of amazing drummers who can't play a tambourine in time for 4 bars, let alone a whole song (maybe you are one).

 

Love playing music with people, and travelling? Who doesn't? 

Learning this makes you a better (and more useful) Drummer, and that, gives you a better chance of making it happen.  

It's no secret that major recording studios are closing all the time and there's less and less studio work around.

So it only leaves the most desirable players left. How to make yourself more desirable? Tool up!

It's a simple case of economics. It's quicker for 1 player to overdub some perc parts on a kit session AND it's saves the artist and labels expensive studio time. Not to mention you get more chance of work eg: the acoustic radio session, where full drum kit isn't appropriate... and others would be left at home. 

'ESSENTIAL PERCUSSION FOR DRUMMERS'
is an online video course
(and can also be booked as a masterclass)

This is the result of my experience of 15+ years as a touring and recording player PLUS over 5 years teaching and writing as a faculty member at a top London music institution.

What The Pros Say

A few kind words from my amazing drumming friends...

 
 

Very Much Worth Checking Out!
— Billy Ward | USA | Multi-Award Winning Session Drummer

“I’ve played drums for over 25 years. Despite owning some congas, tambourines, and plenty of shakers I still never felt confident playing percussion on recordings. Watching Toby’s essential percussion videos immediately gave me a new found confidence - the confidence that comes with simply knowing what you’re doing. The idea of playing percusoon is now an exciting one rather than an intimidating one. Thanks Toby!!
— JOE CRABTREE | UK | WISHBONE ASH / POLYNOME / JOECRABTREE.COM


“Great to have you over.. Super masterclass.
You inspired me to do some conga practice...”
— Johnny Boyle | Head of Drums, BIMM, Dublin, 2017

About Toby 

Hi! I'm Toby Goodman - A professional Drummer/Percussionist based in London, UK and I've been lucky enough to make my living as a musician for over 15 years (you'll see a few of my credits below).

As a drummer, I've always loved playing percussion and incorporating it into my kit playing. But... I always struggled finding resources that explained hand percussion to drummers in the context of popular music. 

So I created 'Essential Percussion For Drummers'. An easily accessible fly on the wall lesson to help drummers play percussion and be more useful!
