More than two hours of priceless drumming essentials featuring Tommy Igoe.

Tommy Igoe brings his 25 years of teaching and playing experience to bear, creating the first DVD for beginner drummers! He takes you on a journey that starts with taking a brand new drum set out of the box and gets you started making music right away. Setting Up! (Part 1) is dedicated to understanding your new drums. All of your drums and hardware, along with Tommy's unique "Power Square" concept, are covered in detail, starting you off in the right direction. Start Playing! (Part 2) will get you playing and having fun right away. Tommy takes you through the basics of how to hold your sticks and how to use your pedals. He even brings out some young students to help demonstrate some great grooves and fills that you can play right away. Special DVD Features allow you to select Tommy playing each of the grooves super slowly so you can really take your time to work everything out. 3 great songs are included, and played by young students, with play-along versions of each one, so that you can start jamming and making music right away! 140 minutes.

Tommy Igoe has recorded with Lauryn Hill, Stanley Jordan, New York Voices, Blood Sweat and Tears, Dave Grusin, The Chieftains, Marc Mancina, Patti Austin, Mary Clayton, Darlene Love, Rita Coolidge and Dave Wilcox. Formerly on tour with Art Garfunkel, and an adjunct professor at Rutgers University, he holds the Lion King drum chair on broadway.

Best Video Ever....

By Nymphadora Hexx

from Phoenix and New York City.

Comments about Hudson Music Getting Started on Drums DVD:

This is a really good video! If you're a beginner this is perfect. Tommy has no ego, speaks well, and is the type guy you want to hang out with. He shows you how to put your new drums together from a pile of parts...when you buy a drum set the instructions are poor it they are there at all. The 2ns part is actual well taught lessons. It would be a good idea to pick up Tommy's Groove DVD as well because this video is simple how to learn to drum and not heavy on new grooves. You won't be sorry if you buy these DVD's.

Sooo Cool

Comments about Hudson Music Getting Started on Drums DVD:

Tommy Igoe. Is sooo cool. I juss stated getting back into the drums,after 35 years of not having nothing but my legs to tap on. BUT! never lost my love for all things related to the musical industry. Finally purchased me a kit. After a long time out of the know. I also purchaed this dvd. IT'S AWESOME! I thank Mr.Igoe for being the way he is. This dvd is tuner me up and teaching me things that i always want to know. Mr.Igoe not only is a great muscian. You can feel his love for music. A awesome learning tool. I'm planning a trip to see him perform live.;

The Best Drum Video I've Seen!

By MusicalMan77

from Hee Haw Hell, OK

Comments about Hudson Music Getting Started on Drums DVD:

As a beginning drummer, I had several other videos, but this one puts the others to shame! GREAT teacher, very easy to understand. Video is well-shot, well-produced, and uses students for some demos to show you that "if these kids can do it, you can too!" Half is set-up, half is beginning grooves. I wish more was devoted to the grooves, but guess now I'll have to buy Tommy's "Groove Essentials" too!

Best I've Found

Comments about Hudson Music Getting Started on Drums DVD:

I have to agree with the other guys here... this is a great video, and the instructor is great; he's easy to listen to, makes you feel comfortabe, and full of good tips that others overlook or neglect. I have a couple other DVDs, but this is head and shoulders above the others. I highly recommend.

Nobody better

By Korn/Silveria # 1

from castleton, VT

Comments about Hudson Music Getting Started on Drums DVD:

Tommy Igoe is with out a doubt the best instructional drummer out there. Drummers who have years of experience will learn something from this Dvd. I was upset and frustrated when I got my drums and wasn't learning anything and on the verge of getting rid of them, then I got this video and I can't stop playing. This guy rocks and is garunteed to help anyone who has alot or no experience play. Get this. You won't regret it.

THIS is the one for beginners!!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hudson Music Getting Started on Drums DVD:

If you are just starting out, THIS is a MUST have DVD! Tommy is young and makes learning FUN!, not like some old stuffed shirt music teacher. It's like the guy-next-door, who plays in a band, and is more than happy to help you, and give good advice, without all the tech lingo. I hope Mr. Igoe makes more DVD's.

MUST HAVE DVD!!!

By ThaMan

from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

Comments about Hudson Music Getting Started on Drums DVD:

I just got new drumset and I purchased another "how to play drums" dvd and it was a POS, this video gives you a simple easy breakdown on assembly, grip, technique and then teaches you basic drum grooves that are a must have for a good foundation for beginning drummers. This dvd, like I said is a must have for beginning drummers!!!

The Best Instructor, period!

By percusboy

from california

Comments about Hudson Music Getting Started on Drums DVD:

Tommy Igoe is fast becoming legend amongst educators and players for his, no nonsense and likeable approach. He doesn't show off (thank god!) and just talks basic, good drumming habits. I have recommended this video to over 50 new drummers and all have raved about it! If you are brand new to drumming, this is the ONLY DVD to get. Also, check out his "Groove Essentials" videos and books, for more advanced playing.

Great Intro

By Boundary

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Hudson Music Getting Started on Drums DVD:

Get this before you buy a set. Starts with everything you need to know about an acoustic set and how to set it up. Good instructor. Goes on to cover basic grooves and exercises.
