Review of Mike Michalkow’s Drumming System, Part 3

As a professional drummer, I would totally use the Drumming System (affiliate link). In fact, watching it for the purpose of doing this review taught me so much.

It really refreshed me on some fundamentals that I take for granted. It also reminded me about some details that I had forgotten about. As a drum teacher,  it gave me a new ideas on how to approach certain material in my lessons.

I have incorporated the course’s Practice Routine Generator (affiliate link) into my practice routine. In fact, there is an entire DVD dedicated to practice. It emphasized the importance of practice in a fun way and how to go about structuring your practice routine.

The foot technique DVD really explained bass drum technique very well. For years, I have been curious about the slide technique and heel toe technique. Since watching that DVD, I have now incorporated both into my playing. The speed DVD gave me a few tips that have improved my overall speed.

The folk drumming videos really helped me and I felt the rock section was a great review for me. I play rock a lot and it reminded me about the subtle nuances that you need to play in each style. For example, grunge, alternative, heavy metal, and speed metal all require different types of details.

For weeks I had these DVD’s playing on my television. And then one day I actually called Jared Falk, the producer of course. I congratulated him on such an excellent product, but I mentioned it was LONG! He laughed and said, “You didn’t realize what you signed up for when you ordered it, huh?”

In the future, I plan on reviewing it every so often, just to stay on top of the basics. I’ve learned the hard way that as you excel in your drumming, it’s easy to forget certain fundamentals.
