Free Video Lessons

Hey! You have landed on the page I figure might get the most visitors. I mean, who doesn't want free stuff? I definitely do! I am happy to put together informative and fun video lessons to help you in your drumming journey. Now, I need to make money just like everyone else. Gotta have a roof over my drums... and my family of course. And as I certainly earn enough with lessons and classes to get by, all these drums, sticks, computer, software, and so on, all need to be upgraded or replaced. I could try the old business strategy and apply for a bank loan.  Hmph...but....with all these crowdfunding sites out there and so many awesome folks just like you donating to their favorite organization or start-up, this sounds like a much better idea. 

If you'd like to support me, please become a monthly contributor or a one time donation at www.patreon.com/mjdrumacademy
