In this online drum lesson, Pat Levett will walk you through some New Orleans drumming history and teach you all the rhythms and patterns you need to know along the way.
By the end of the course you'll be able to play lots of different styles of New Orleans music - from Second Line Drumming to a Dirge, from Fats Domino's Rock and Roll to iconic Allen Toussaint funky jams.
...and most importantly, you'll be able to incorporate all this into your own style of playing.
