Lesson plan (1h 6m)
Max Sedgley is a British producer, drummer and DJ. His compositions have been used on numerous TV programmes and ads including the hit series Six Feet Under. He was also the drummer for the iconic drum and bass producer Roni Size.
In this course, Max goes back to the basics of drumming and shows you how to master its fundamental building blocks - a stage that some drummers rush through all too quickly, leaving them with bad habits that stick with them as they advance.
The course is great preparation for Max's "Iconic Breaks" series of courses, and beginner drummers, as well as more experienced players, will find it a useful grounding in fundamental drum techniques, leaving them with a solid foundation on which to build.
