This money-saving 2 pack includes the complete Getting Started on Drums and Groove Essentials. With 6 hours of world-class instruction in all, this package is a great deal!

Getting Started On Drums
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 Your Drums! (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.

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. Play-along versions of each one are included, so that you can start jamming and making music right away!

Groove Essentials
Three-and-a-half hours of great material! Groove Essentials is based on the definitive collection of contemporary rock, jazz, R&B, funk, and world/ethnic drumming styles contained in the poster of the same name, developed by world-class drummer, teacher and author Tommy Igoe and Vic Firth drum sticks.

On this DVD, Tommy demonstrates 47 of today's most popular drum patterns, including a performance of each with a rhythm track played by some of New York's top players. This unique feature lets the student hear what each groove sounds and feels like with real music played by live musicians. Included among the drum patterns are 8th-note, 16th-note, and half-time rock; jazz waltz, shuffle and swing, R&B, hip-hop and funk as well as world music styles, including New Orleans second-line, reggae, Bossa Nova, Samba, Mambo, Cha-Cha, Bolero and Tango.

As a special bonus, the package includes a free Groove Essentials poster (courtesy of Vic Firth drum sticks), which contains fully-notated examples of every one of the 47 grooves on the DVD!

EVERY NEW DRUMMER NEEDS THIS VID

By noelvm

Comments about Hudson Music Tommy Igoe: Getting Started - Groove Essentials (DVD 2-Pack):

I was looking for something to start me off with my new drum kit. I got it together but had no idea how to proprerly set it up and adjust it. This is the video you need. Everything for set up from tuning to adjustment and placement is here in a usable manner and presentation.This video should be in the box with every new drum kit. Worth way more than what it cost.

Comments about Hudson Music Tommy Igoe: Getting Started - Groove Essentials (DVD 2-Pack):

This is probably the best value in drum DVD's. Groove Essentials alone is worth this much. Tommy's DVD's always have a ton of material that you can actually use.

What a deal!

Comments about Hudson Music Tommy Igoe: Getting Started - Groove Essentials (DVD 2-Pack):

Both these videos are world class. Amazing instructional material. But take my advice and get the Groove Essentials Play along BOOK too. It has all the music from the DVD minus the drums so you can play all the songs yourself. It'll keep you busy for years!

Best thing to do for your drumming

By percusboy

Comments about Hudson Music Tommy Igoe: Getting Started - Groove Essentials (DVD 2-Pack):

Getting started is for beginners but Groove Essentials is for all levels. It's the best DVD ever made to learn how to play in bands, which is what I want to do. I learned so many styles I couldn't play before. Tommy Igoe is the best instructor I've ever seen on DVD and I own so many DVD's. The guy is funny and great.
