Are You Ready To Build A Monster, Unstoppable Groove?


Welcome to Drumming in Motion, my online educational portal. In more than a decade of online teaching, I have developed a unique training system that has helped thousands of drummers at every level find a deeper connection to their drumming, and offer them  skills that will make them more "employable" in the real world of music.
I call this outside-the-box training program the "Motion Based System." Studying it offers you a big-picture awareness of what you're doing behind a drum set broken into three parts: the WHAT (patterns and independence), the WHY (evolution - knowing where it comes from), and the HOW (the motions that make up the core of it all).
To learn how the Motion Based System will supercharge your groove and transform you into the best version of your drumming self, I invite you to watch the following video. It's the first in a six-part series that I call "All About The Groove."


There are currently two programs available in the Drumming In Motion library:

1. Finding Your Golden Groove

Good news! Finding Your Golden Groove will be re-opening to accept a new group of students. The cart will be open for four days, March 29 - April 1, 2022. For more information about the course - and to get a FREE copy of my mini-eBook The Secrets Behind John Bonham and Keith Moon - just click the link below.
The link will also connect you to my FREE 6-PART VIDEO SERIES "ALL ABOUT GROOVE." These videos are the first step to building a deep, powerful pocket and feeling more comfortable behind the drums.

2. The Best Damn Shuffles Course Ever!

Whatever style of music you play – rock, blues, funk, hip hop, jazz, metal, country, gospel or reggae – I guarantee that you will encounter a shuffle. For many drummers, shuffles are a glaring weak spot. In this six-module course, you'll learn the key motions to create an AUTHENTIC SOUNDING SHUFFLE that can be used in many different styles of music.

Not only is Daniel a passionate, thorough, patient and great teacher, his methods are not a gimmick. They truly work. Studying with Daniel completely changed not only how I play the drums, but my understanding of feel, time, and groove. I highly recommend Daniel to anyone who wants to understand and play the drums on a deeper level. He’s an encyclopedia of drums and a really nice person too.
