Review of Mike Michalkow’s Drumming System, Part 5

To my knowledge, there is one drumming course out their that is similar to the Drumming System (affiliate link). It is called Learn and Master Drums (affiliate link). After trying both courses, I believe that the Drumming System (affiliate link) is a far better product. This course goes into much more detail than
Learn and Master Drums (affiliate link).

Click here to read my review of Learn and Master Drums (affiliate link). I also did a side by side comparison of both DVD drum set courses. Click here to see how the Drumming System (affiliate link) stacks up.

You might be wondering if the course functions well on it’s own, or if you’ll need the guidance of teacher, additional books, or additional videos? If you are good at self-study and want to learn at your own pace, this is an excellent investment. In fact, if you aren’t good at self-study, please don’t buy this course. You will end up frustrated. It requires an incredible amount of discipline.

Keep in mind that it has a money-back guarantee and offers unlimited lifetime support. If you have any follow up questions, they will do their best to help you out. As a plus, the support department has drummers on staff.

At some point the aid of a drum teacher (affiliate link) will be needed to take your drum skills to a higher level.  I believe that the real time feedback you can get to correct you is something that no video can replace.

In terms of the price of the course, you might be wondering if it’s worth it. After going through the entire course, I firmly believe that it’s priced too low. Initially, I was skeptical. I thought that it was going to be an over-priced, over-marketed product. After watching the first DVD, I was impressed and hooked! I sincerely believe that the Drumming System (affiliate link) is worth a lot more than what they are selling it for.

Review of Mike Michalkow’s Drumming System, Part 2

I get many emails from people asking me if the Drumming System (affiliate link) would be a good product for someone who is new to the drums. I truly believe that it depends on the person learning.

Knowing what I know now, as a professional drummer and a drum teacher, I had to think about whether or I not this course would lay a strong foundation for me if I were starting drums all over again.

For someone like myself, this would be the perfect course to learn drums with. It would be great for me because I am a self-starter and self-disciplined. I stick with things until I get them.

In reality, not everyone is like this. Therefore, starting out with a course like this could be overwhelming to a beginner. It might even turn them off of playing drums because it’s an incredible amount of material.

If you’re not self-disciplined, I would suggest NOT buying it. It doesn’t mean that I think it is a bad product. Again, it’s meant for someone who is self-disciplined.

Fortunately, the Drumming System (affiliate link) comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee. Most people know whether or not this program is right for them within the first 30 days. Regardless, that guarantee takes away all the risk from you.

The material in the Drumming System (affiliate link) will give a beginner a very well-rounded and solid foundation in drumming. For most people, the pace that Mike Michalkow teaches at is be perfect for learning drums. He discusses the most complex techniques so calmly. thoroughly, and in great detail.

As I remember my early days of learning how to drum, I really struggled with fills. Mike Micahlkow has a very smooth step by step approach to fills. His approach would have helped me so much if I were starting drums all over.
