The Incredible 'Shortcut' To Mastering The Drums From The Comfort Of Home...
"Finally, A Proven System That Allows Anyone To Learn To Play The Drums Like A Pro - Without Ever Leaving Home!
Why pay $45 a session, travel up to an hour from home and be kicked out of the practice room 5 minutes before your lesson is even over, when you could learn to master the kit any time you want - any where you want - for FREE!
Attention Drum Enthusiasts and Friends,
From the thrones of Paul Donahue and Mike Purvis (okay... Mike's at a desk - more on that in a minute...
Click Button To Play
If you're the least bit frustrated about the progress you've been making as a drummer, or ever thought that you couldn't play or read like the pros... I'm about to prove you wrong!
Or maybe you've been held back from learning the craft because of long work hours (with no time to schedule a lesson - nevermind practice) - or are just a little too gunshy to sit down with a pro and show them where you're at (which you should never be)...
Maybe there aren't any places to get a lesson close enough to home - or worse... you've taken lessons and found out that there are some instructors out there that just see you as a paycheck, and are more concerned with getting you out the door so they can get to their other gig (which is delivering pizzas), to cover the bills!
It's crazy - but I've known a few!
My name is Mike Purvis, and I was every bit as frustrated as you. I actually picked up the drums "late in life" (like late 20's), but it was one of the best decisions I ever made and I confess... I'm an addict! But I ran into some time crunches and had some difficulties getting instructors to teach me what I wanted.
Every instructor had an outline they followed and it was mostly a "do this and then we'll talk" kind of a relationship (which took a lot of the fun out of it).
Eventually I really lucked out and found an instructor that was excited to help me master the drumkit - he lived and breathed the drums!
He was like... "What do you want to play and how fast do you want to get there?"
And Then Taught From A Customized Plan That Worked For Me!
As you can imagine, this changed how quickly I was learning as well as how much fun I was having while doing so.
I still to this day take lessons from the same Instructor, and given the choice between going elsewhere or paying 10 times as much for my lessons - I'd pay the difference! My Instructor's name is Paul Donahue.
I'll tell you a bit more about how Paul can change the way you look at drumming, and the results you can expect to get in just a sec. Paul if you're reading this I'd prefer you didn't raise my rates :)
But first a bit about me and why...
Under No Circumstances Should You Take My Advice
About How To Play The Drums!
Ok, I'm Serious About This And Here's Why...
I am by no means a drumming ninja (but Paul is beyond ninja - like if Bruce Lee were to have chops... yeah, kinda like that)!
As a matter of fact, I'm more of an enthusiast than a pro, and that's cool by me. I play for the fun of it... no intentions of playing for a big name band or anything like that (besides I don't think my family would like me travelling all year :)
But I love drumming and the challenge of it all - the extreme coordination involved, the timing, and just "garage banding" a tune - love it!
The interesting part of the story is that I design tools and services that help people achieve greater success with their online businesses and websites (and ultimately make more money, and spend less time working).
Well it just dawned on me right after a lesson one night - I was like, "It's really too bad more people don't have access to such great instructors... too bad it can't be this much fun for everyone... I mean I've never had such incredible results with my playing!"
And then I knew...
I mean I only run an entire business helping people to get online... like duh! So I suggested Paul "replicate himself" and bring his teaching style online so that others could benefit.
I was like, "Just do what you do best, and I'll handle all the details of helping to put your methods and skills in the hands of anyone who wants to get better, faster."
And Paul was like, "Hey, if you think I can reach more people and show them how to get the results they're after - I'm totally for that!"
And so the Instant Drum Lessons project was born...
I've never met anyone more passionate about helping you to get exactly where you want to be with your drumming.
It Happens So Quickly And With Such Little Effort - It's Incredible!
Hopefully, if you've landed here after browsing through the site, then you already know a bit about Paul, and why you absolutely should listen and learn form him. If you heven't already discovered, Paul has accomplished many great things in his drumming career, and is building out that list almost daily.
Here's a quick peek into his BIO:
Paul has been playing drums for the past 20 years and teaching for over a decade. While open to many styles of music, his favorites include Jazz, Funk, Rock and Soul.
He currently performs with many groups including Elsa Cross, Amorphous Band, FunkyTown, Todd Royce, Eric Chase, Joe Gattuso, Steve Carter, and various other ensembles.
Playing with such a wide variety of bands has afforded Paul the opportunity to perform with many national acts such as Maceo Parker, The Headhunters, Corey Glover, The Rebirth Brass Band, The Radiators, SemiSonic, Chris Duarte, Tim Reynolds, Johnny Winter and members of The Commodores.
He has toured up and down the East Coast from the tip of Maine to Southern Florida. He has played on 11 albums, and continues to perform and practice his craft daily.
Paul is a credit to his trade - and you'll see that from many of the testimonials spread throughout the site as well.
There are a host of reasons that Instant Drum Lessons is unlike any other drumming program online, and we'll cover many of those in just a moment, but perhaps one of the biggest things that sets us apart is the accessibility you have to connect with not only the other members of the site - but also with us.
We openly field your questions in a personal, responsive manner... We share useful content and tips to help you 'high speed' your training, and we genuinely care about your progress.
This Type Of Community Is Invaluable If
You're Looking To Improve Fast...
But as I'm sure you've already guessed... that's just the very beginning of what you'll receive by becoming a member.
I should probably stop right here and mention... once you start drumming - you'll never want to stop (don't say I didn't warn you). And if you're already playing - here's another heads up...
Once you become an Instant Drum Lessons member - your chops might catch on fire, and you'll start playing with a level of skill and passion you probably never even knew you had in you!
It's true - and because of that you'll probably find that you'll never want to quit - so rock on my friend... we'll be hammering out the beats right beside you :)
Doesn't matter if you've never lifted a stick in your life, or if you've been playing for 10 years spending 8 hours a day in the shed perfecting your chops - you're still going to get better by becoming a member!
There's just no way around it.
So what else makes IDL such an incredible resource?
That my friend, is the question I've been wanting to answer!
Here are a few of the biggest obstacles our customers said prevented them from becoming better drummers - and...
How The IDL System Totally Eliminates Each And
Every One Of These Roadblocks.
"I just don't have the time to learn."
This is one of the biggest ones we hear, and the reasons sound legit (but they're bogus... give me a minute and you'll see why).
They range from: I'm too busy with classes, work, taking care of the kids, cooking, cleaning, partying (ok, maybe there's one good one :)
But you get the point. Now here's why none of these things are an obstacle any longer...
Instant Drum Lessons is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.
Most of our training videos are under 5 minutes and use a practical "do this now" approach. Try telling me you can't fit in a couple of 10 minute practice sessions in the course of a day and I'm gonna say... "yeah right!"
Watch the video, practice along (and then for another few minutes), and get back to what it was you were doing. You'll be surprised how quickly the results start showing - most of our customers are :)
And all that aside... unlike conventional Instructor based lessons where you're on someone else's schedule and "locked in" for a time (that's usually tough to stick to - believe me I know), with IDL you can work on your chops and check in with us any time it works for you!
"I can't afford to learn to play the drums."
Another tough one to argue without checking in on your last years tax return. But as you can guess, I'm gonna say - "nope, that's not really a good reason either."
Check it out...
We want you to play - and we've made it so anyone can squeeze it into their budget! It just doesn't get any less expensive than this (yes. it really is FREE!)...
Ok, so here's the deal... If you're completely new to drumming and don't even have a pair of sticks yet, I can see you being a bit timid about the cost to pick up the addiction. But here's the skinny:
If you have a kit already - awesome! If not, you don't need one to start learning to play. I guess in reality, you don't need anything outside of an IDL membership to get started :)
Go widdle a pair of sticks out of that old chair in the closet (just make sure they're matched weight), fire up the computer and let's start sheddin' some rudiments!
The beauty of Instant Drum Lessons is that we put everything you'll need to know to start building wreckless (in a totally intentional way), chops right away, without needing any fancy equipment or gadgets, training manuals. etc.
With conventional methods you'll need a car, and probably insurance (you know... to get to the lesson), gas, books, sticks, a metronome (nope you don't even need one of those with us. I'm telling you - we've got you covered)!
It's crazy! So if you want to do your part in saving the planet at the same time as building your skills - go digital and let us show you how how to crank out the beats!
If you're ready to put Instant Drum Lessons to work for you - then it won't cost you a single penny - honestly. We want to help as many people as possible, and because of that we've removed the 'price of entry' obstacle completely and made IDL a FREE members site!
And with your membership, you get a whole lot more than just drumming instruction - but I don't want to get too far ahead of myself...
"I'm too nervous to play in front of other people - even just for lessons."
Listen, welcome to my world! I was totally in your shoes too, and I hear where you're coming from. I overcame my fear because at the time there were no other options. It was either do nothing and keep wishing I could play, or just suck it up and go...
Fortunately for me I was able to work through it, but there are many people who just want to learn to play "for themselves" and I'm behind you a hundred and ten percent * - and now you can!
* (although I strongly urge you to play with other musicians - it's an incredible feeling and I wouldn't want you missing out!)
As an IDL member you'll be able to get involved as much (or as little) as you want.
We're building a drumming community, and you'll be able to interact at any level you feel comfortable with. Talk with other people who had the same reservations about playing in public - see how they worked through it...
Chat with people who just play because they love it - no band or gig night... just building killer chops so they can be like "check this out... ra-ta-ta-ta-tat... ta-tat-tat" (when I was writing this that was actually a very long segment - I cut it down just enough so you would get the point... ba-ding-ding... da-da-ding-ding, ca-cha...)
But you get the point. Don't let your fears stop you from trying something you've always wanted to do. You can learn to play - and once you get to the level we'll be driving you to - you'll want to show off a bit!
"I'm just not sure drumming is for me."
Ok, not sure I need to go very far on this one, but for the sake of being thorough I'll pipe in just a bit.
Actually... maybe I won't - just because the answer is already so obvious and you already know what I'm going to say, and I don't want to bore you, and...
You know what - I think I will...
There's no better way that I know of to see if drumming is for you, than to try InstantDrumLessons.com - period!
If you've read this far, then it's clear that you truly want to play the drums - and you owe it to yourself to give it a shot. There's no question in my mind that you'll be glad you did!
There's Really No Reason You Can't Do Yourself This
One Favor And Start Playing Today!
When I was a kid I always wanted to play... I can remember asking for a drumkit when I was just a mini me, but it just never happened for one reason or another. Then when I got older, life kicked in and I just got busy - kinda put it aside...
Then in my mid-twenties I started hanging out with a super talented musician (hey Timmy, cheers to you my man!), and he was like - "Dude - don't be lame! You can afford it, and your neighbors can deal... I'm taking you after work and you're getting a kit!"
Of course I hemmed and hawed and all that - but there was no saying no at that point (and honestly I was totally stoked about it)! So that was it for me. I needed that push - and if you need one too...
consider yourself pushed!
I've been happier every day since I snagged that first kit (there have been many since - I'm kind of a drum gear junkie as well). And every time I get up from the kit I have this incredible sense of accomplishment - even from landing the simplest new lick... it's really rewarding - you'll see!
All I'm saying is, if you're on the fence you'd be doing yourself a terrible injustice if you didn't at least give yourself the chance to start...
So anyway - all that aside, let's talk about...
Exactly What You Get As An Instant Drum Lessons VIP Member
And Yes, All Our Members Are VIP's!
MEMBER BENEFIT #1 - The Lesson System
Ok, this is where it gets fun! Membership at IDL is about way more than just giving you a bunch of great lessons to get you ramping up your chops - it's way more! But let's start with what makes our lesson system unique first...
We've laid out our lessons so that you'll stay engaged no matter what your skill level - let me explain.
When you first log in to the members area, you'll see a left hand navigation panel - this is where the lessons live. The lessons are divided by skill level - but also, right at the top, there's a QuickStart Panel. This serves two purposes - first, it will get you familiar with how to navigate the members area, and second, it will prep you for jumping into the Beginner Lessons.
So there will be videos in the QuickStart that everyone should watch regardless of experience (just to make sure you get the most form the members area and don't miss any cool stuff).
Next we have the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced training areas - cleanly laid out so you can go through a progression just as you would if we were right there with you.
Each section includes lessons on rudiments, reading music and drumset exercises specific to that level.
But here's the really cool part about the IDL lesson system...
you can quickly and easily "filter" the lessons list
to display only those things you're interested in
Just want to work on your chops... pull up the intermediate rudiment exercises and go to town! Only have 15 minutes and want to take a crack at an advanced drumkit routine... go for it (good luck)!
No system that I know of offers a cleaner training system than IDL. We've put a lot of time into making it work as close to a live experience as possible - putting you in control while still keeping you working in a progressive fashion that wil have you improving at the fastest possible rate.
And of course you can do lesson searches and all that good stuff.
Oh yeah... one more thing on the lessons - and this is a big one!
We haven't just posted a bunch of material for you to master an then be left hanging... we continually add new material for all levels. Drumming is a life long adventure, and there is always something new to learn - there will be more and more content added week to week. But don't worry...
because of our organized search and filter system, you'll never be lost or overwhelmed!
It's super important to us that you find the system easy, and fun to use - and we're sure you will!
MEMBER BENEFIT #2 - Q & A Calls and Expert Interviews
This one is enormous all in itself - and one we're pretty excited about bringing your way as a new member! It's actually two parts...
Every so often we host Question and Answer calls where you'll have full access to us and other members to talk about roadblocks you might be running into - or maybe even breakthroughs you've had that you want to share with everyone else. These calls are completely free and anyone can join!
Many members learn as much from listening to others who have been where they are and struggled as they have, than they do from practicing hours on end - it's powerful stuff.
And another call related bonus you'll have immediate access to...
Access To The "Interview The Expert" Call Series
We'll be doing some deep-digging calls with many of the 'underground' and cutting edge musicians of our time - you won't want to miss even one of these!
Priceless tips and tricks will be dropped on each call, and you'll get insight into the art of drums and drumming that you never imagined possible!
These are benefits you simply can't put a price on.
MEMBER BENEFIT #3 - The Bonus Content
We'll also be releasing fresh new content that
only IDL members will have access to.
It could be our Newsletter, a tips and techniques report, a bonus interview or transcription...
...new licks, drum charts, training manual, physical product...
And I could roll that list out for quite a while - but what I mean is that we'll be releasing great "put it into action now" content on a regular basis that only you'll be able to check out!
And there's so much more...
Ok, So I Guess Now It Just Comes Down To "How Much?"...
If you've been reading closely, then you already know the answer to this question. If you missed it, then I know you've been waiting in suspense - wondering how much it's all going to set you back... well, prepare to be happily surprised (and no, we haven't lost our minds)...
As a Limited Marketing Test, we're allowing the next
250 217 members unrestricted access to the entire Instant Drum Lessons system... for FREE! (but only if you act quickly - read below).
Right now you can sign up for the insanely low price of just $0 a month (I repeated it so you'd know it wasn't a misprint), and your membership will continue uninterrupted for as long as you choose to remain an Instant Drum Lessons member.
Of course, you can cancel anytime you wish, but trust me... you won't want to! Once you start getting better and better - faster than you ever thought possible, you'll be hooked! Heck, you might even realize what a steal this is and want to pay us - which is cool, but just refer a friend instead - we'd rather get more people raving about the site!
And if you're thinking even for a second that you might not get what you're paying for, then fret no more (would be a good pun for a guitar site :)
Helping You Become A Better Drummer Is
