This drum play along program improves your drumming skills quickly and dramatically.

You can hear each song's drum track first, or play the track without the drums and add your own. Try one free.
Wes Crawford's coaching gives you real-world wisdom about life in a band, with insider tips for success in your music career. Simply get your drumset and a computer or mp3 player together, and join the band.
You've got great talent to work with: world-class musicians Gary Grainger on bass (who's played with John Scofield, Maysa), Derek Wille on keyboards (worked with Cher, Chic), Alvin White on guitar (also with Najee, Jane L. Powell), and Stephanie Diamond on vocals. Practice all 10 songs in just under 1 hour (Run time (total): 55:17)

Reviewers and Teachers rave about it because...
"This is a highly innovative, motivational and educational DVD...Wes is not just teaching the fundamentals of the drum set rhythm, he is also teaching "FUN." Everyone looking for an educational and motivational practice aid for the drum set should check this out -- see it for yourself."
"Crawford's play-along, filmed from the drum throne perspective, delivers some fun pretenses about being in a band, plus a lot of good practical playing information."
"...the lyrics are often a scream...This is a refreshing contrast to many instructional vids, some of which are soporific. This may elicit some groans, but it won't put you or your students asleep in the name of learning. And, if they do the work (some of these charts are tricky), they'll emerge as better musicians."
"Great job on the DVD! ...it would work very well as a practice aid, no matter the level the student is at."
"Wes Crawford has put together a fun and practical package for the drum student who is looking to bridge the gap between drum lessons and the real world of playing the drums. WELL DONE..."
"This is unique and fun. I felt like I was in a Pop band!...Now we don't just play the song, we live the real band situation. That's the next generation of play-along DVD. Congratulations!"
"Wes Crawford's Drumset Play-Along DVD" is a well thought-out instructional DVD for the drummer who wants a head start on what it takes to be a quality professional drummer. The student learns not only how to approach the many different styles one encounters in a working band situation but about the drummer's role and purpose to the music...My only fear is that it might replace the private instructor."
