What follows is a somewhat different and unique idea. It may help raise you to rhythm-guru status, put money in your pocket . . . and allow you to help millions of people at the same time . . . all for a mere $45!

This well established course in drum set techniques has been online since 1994, but I'm risking it all, to try something new here. I'm practically giving away a fortune!

For years . . . I've sold password memberships to this complete course Between 1994 and 2007, EACH AND EVERY student 'PAID' to study all these same lessons, via a membership plan.

The old plan worked fine for me! It has given this old retired drummer a decent retirement income over the past 13 years . . . But, now it's time for me to give back, in a BETTER way! I want to do more than I've done previously!

The (old style) password memberships, paid for maintenance of the site and paid me too; But the 'less advantaged' folks were left out. Many of the less privileged people (in 3rd World countries) simply couldn't afford to pay for membership, in order to study all the lessons. In some countries, the previous cost of this course might represent a years wages!

That has always haunted me. I've always searched for a BETTER way! Maybe this is it! I've always wanted to teach THOSE people too . . . even though they simply can't afford the complete course. (You would be amazed at how fluently many of them read, write and speak, English!)

I'm attempting to launch a new idea that could help make this material free to those in the world who can not afford to pay for lessons. .

I'm working to completely dispose of all the encryptions
and all the cloak and dagger stuff, too.

I just want it to be free to the disadvantaged, . . . yet pay it's own way! I'm not trying to get rich here.

I've thought about this new idea long and hard for many months. Finally I've decided to throw caution to the wind, and give this new plan a shot, right here on the web page you are currently reading!

I want to see what YOU think about it! Your response (or lack of response) to this will tell me what I need to know.


Know it or not . . . It costs a LOT of money, energy and time, to maintain and keep all this available! There are many costs and expenses associated with providing a resource such as this. Bills MUST be paid . . . or it all goes down in flames!


Think about all that as you read . . .

My idea is to get 'some' GOOD people like you to invest in THEMSELVES, AND HELP ME KEEP THIS DRUM COURSE FREE FOR OTHERS, at the same time. This way, the investor-contributor receives a lot more for their money! Their contribution, or investment in themselves TAKES THEM TOWARDS GURU-STATUS. Meanwhile their investment goes on to pay the bills here, and keep the 125-lessons of the course free for others too,. This is a win/win idea all the way around!

In other words . . . I want to try to entice the people who are not impoverished, to study my additional courses to HELP pay for those who can not pay. The plan, is to simply get those who have the funds, to INVEST DEEPER INTO THEIR OWN FUTURE, while helping other less fortunate people at the same time.

If you'll donate $45, I'll give you (and your chosen benefactor) all these additional courses for free. You (and your chosen benefactor) will receive the 125-lesson course, plus downloads, and 5 other bonus courses . . . all for one low $45 donation/fee.

  • Password authorization to more than 125 secret website lessons, most with video!
  • Dowloadable! Place it on a CD or DVD if you wish.
  • "Old Drums Into New Money"
  • 78 (or more) archived newsletter lessons.
  • Finite to Infinity (Time Signature and Permutation Theory)
  • Drum Instructor's Guide.
  • Guide for Parents of Pre-schoolers. Teaching toddlers!
  • UNLIMITED e-mail personal help anytime you need it.
  • TOTAL, 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE. If your aren't totally thrilled, I'll refund every penny.

Are you getting the picture? It's one-stop shopping for all your drumming educational needs! This is the only course in drumming you'll ever need! You'll need to study the lessons to realize the truth in that statement. I encourage you to do just that.

The investors/contributors will gain MORE than they spend, as they study my exclusive and deeper courses, but their investment will help keep the free 125-lesson course afloat! They'll be helping other (less fortunate students) study the course, absolutely free!

If you'll donate (one-time) $45, for one membership, I'll give you the option to give a SECOND MEMBERSHIP to anyone you choose.

We all know there's no better investment, than to invest in yourself! Am I right or wrong?

Think about that for a very long moment! Then . . . read-on to see where I'm going with all this.

Please be aware that if you were to study these VERY SAME (web site) lessons with me in my private studios, they would cost you in excess of $2,000, at one-lesson-per-week, over a two or three year period. You are seeing them all for free here, and you can study at your own pace!

Here online . . . Many of the really talented students can 'ACE' this entire 125-lesson course, in under 6 months, and sometimes less! People tend to learn at a much faster rate online, than they will in private classes. Believe it! It's true! You will not need private lessons if you take these lessons! These are exactly the same lessons I'd be giving you in my private studios at a rate of $50 per hour. Do the math!

It's a great value, even at the OLD price of $57!

If you'll do your part, DONATE $45 AND RECEIVE ALL THE PRODUCTS, I'll allow you to choose a benefactor, (anyone you wish) to receive a duplicate membership, at no additional cost.

40 years from now . . . that measly $45 dollars will seem rather insignificant if I can teach you how to make that much every hour of your life, for the next 40 years!

Nothing is EVER free these days! Everything costs SOMEONE something, in one way or another! It costs a lot of money to provide valuable free content such as this.

Who should foot the bill?

In my heart, I want to GIVE my 50 years of teaching and playing experiences away, but I know that my heirs will not, and I'm getting pretty old.

ANSWER THIS! Should I, (or my heirs) pay money out of pocket . . . to offer all this for free? How long will it last, that way?

Yes! I hold some secrets that I just do NOT give away to everyone who asks! These courses contain priceless knowledge that you won't find anywhere but here. Be sure to check each of them out thoroughly.

No! You do NOT have to be a seasoned-pro to make a lot of money behind a set of drums! Those additional courses will show you exactly how to do it.


You'll gain download access to all 125-lessons at the hidden site, plus you'll receive ALL the following short courses, in gratitude for your $45. It's a 'contribution-donation-investment' in yourself.

There's no way to lose on this!

Even if you do not study ANY of the lessons, you'll still be helping thousands of other people WHO ARE VERY SERIOUS ABOUT DRUMS. I often give these lessons to kids and impoverished people in 3rd world countries. They e-mail me and I get to know them. If they seem worthy, I just send them passwords and allow them free access to the lessons.

Yes! All paid members (those who donate $45 or more) will also be allowed to choose a benefactor as well. You both can download all the lessons, to your own computers. It's good to have the download because all the lessons will load quicker.

These courses are 100% digital and immediate. NO WAITING FOR SNAIL-MAIL!
Instant access! and easy to download.

      There are actually $2,000.00 worth of drum set lessons in this package deal! These aren't just 'random' drum lessons! It's a complete course that has been in development since the mid-1960s. The objective is to take you from beginner to pro status, within the LEAST amount of lessons!

      Why study thousands of fancy 'shrink-wrapped' videos and lessons you don't actually need? Why pay for a slick video of 'some kid' . . . showing you how fancy HE can play? That won't help you a bit! Will it?

      No! That would be a major waste of your time, don't you think? Doesn't it seem wiser to opt for the SPECIFIC lessons you DO need?

      You need structured lessons from a seasoned teacher. You need lessons that are the same equivalent as PRIVATE LESSONS with a seasoned, private instructor!

      Think about that!

      The 125-lessons in this STRUCTURED COURSE, have been designed (by me) via trial and error over a 50 year period of time. Each lesson is designed to help you reach your goals in the SHORTEST amount of time. That's what this COMPLETE course is designed to do!

      To take these lessons is virtually the same, OR BETTER, than visiting me once a week, over a two year time-period, for private lessons. The best part is . . . if you are really talented and eager, you may 'ACE' the entire thing in as little as 6 months.

      This course, from THE HOMESTUDY INSTITUTE OF DRUMS, is the first, the oldest, and the best, on the web. There are a lot of imitators out here now . . . but this one course will still be here when they are all gone, with YOUR help.
