VirtualDrumming Drums App on the App Store and Google Play
On the App Store and Google Play is available the version for smartphones and tablets of our virtual drum set.
Adding original features to every other Drums App, VirtualDrumming is more than a drum game,
even the most skilled drummers can use it as a real instrument.
The basic drum lessons, the first part of this method for drums and percussion instruments, deal with the right posture,
which is the basic condition to develop speed, endurance and precision with your playing.
The style and the role of drumming have evolved with time, but the basic drums and percussion instruments technique
hasn't changed much, and all the great drummers still build their own style from the same basis of musical theory.
Method It's very important, in all the exercises, to keep a relaxed approach
with the drum set and the sticks, to control the breathing and to avoid muscles tension.
You should approach every exercise by playing it slowly at first, then gradually speed up mantaining a relaxed posture,
without changing your breathing or stiffening your body. You don't have to hurry, the study of musical instruments demands a lot of practice,
and also the study of drums, as any other discipline, demands a long and constant exercise.
Improvisational skills are essential to any drummer to improve his expressive possibilities; that's why it's so important to experiment personal
variations playing the exercises, following his own style and natural inclination.
Topics in the basic and advanced drum lessons and in the online drum lessons published drum sheet music are:
Rudiments & Fundamentals, Coordinated independence, Basic drum beats, Advanced drum beats, Snare drum studies, Drums grooves, Songs drum parts
and Drum solo transcriptions, with transcriptions of songs and grooves by John Bonham, Phil Collins, Stewart Copeland,
