Learning any musical instrument, including the drums, can be a little daunting when starting. But fear not! Once you dive a little deeper, you'll find that it's all about how you approach it, using the resources available, and making sure you have help available when you need it.

Your progress on the drums depends on practice.

The reality is that small amounts of practice can make a big difference when learning the drums. This is excellent news for aspiring drummers and hobbyists who want to see results quickly and have fun learning a musical instrument.

How fast you progress on the drums depends on your goals, available practice time, and a structured practice plan. This is where we can help.

What are your goals?

If your goal is to play for fun, start a new hobby, or perhaps even help with some much-needed stress relief, this can be achieved significantly quicker than if your goal was complete mastery and world domination. Even if your goal is the latter, your success will depend on building a solid foundation, and we designed Drum Ambition to give you just that.

What is Drum Ambition?

Drum Ambition is a comprehensive series of video drum lessons designed specifically for beginner drummers. Our courses give you everything you need to get started, grow, and mature into a competent musical drummer. Our Founder and Presenter, Simon DasGupta, designed the course based on his 20 years of experience helping drummers achieve their goals.

How long does the course take?

Our courses can be taken entirely at your own pace. We all lead busy lives, and one of the main benefits of Drum Ambition is the ability to learn on your terms. We have two convenient subscription plans. Our monthly plan is great for new drummers who want month-to-month flexibility and are trying out drumming for the first time. Our annual plan is great value for those committed to longer-term learning. All plans come with our 30 day money-back Happiness Guarantee.

Is there help available?

You are not alone on this journey. Aside from access to our entire curriculum and all of the resources in our 5 complete courses, all subscribers, regardless of your chosen plan, have access by email to Simon. Our videos will give you plenty of helpful guidance on practice tips, goals, and formulating a practice plan.

Do you need a drum set to start learning?

You might think so, but many beginner drummers start with improvised drum sets or practice pads. Since the early days of learning to play the drums is all about understanding rhythm and developing coordination, not having a drum set should not deter you from learning.

When you are ready to buy your first drum set, this article will help.
