Beat Practice “FOMO”, Save Time, and Make up to 3x faster progress

The Practice Course - Hero.png

Get the Complete System I used to go from “feeling in a rut” and wasting time to feeling confident I was making progress…

…even if you can only Practice as little as 25 minutes on some days

DUDE!!! I Love This! I love how methodical this is and how many points you brought up and ideas I want to start implementing!”
— Matt, Drummer

“I’m spending *so much time*in the practice room. So why do I still feel like I’m not practicing the right things?”

Sometimes, you can't focus enough on a few crucial things to make progress...

"I feel that I did not focus enough on [a few] things"

"I can't maintain focus"

"There’s too many things I want to work on and I can’t find an effective way to fit them all in"

"Don’t know how many exercises to focus on at a time. For example: Is it more efficient to focus on 3 rudiments per week, or would 5 rudiments be more efficient?"

etc, etc

Other times, you feel "stuck in a rut", playing the same few things over-and-over...

"Too much falling back into the same known patterns"

"I also feel more stuck on some material then other and I don't really get why"

Finally, you find it difficult transplanting the creativity you feel in the practice room to the gig, and sometimes you find it difficult being creative or musical in the practice room...

"I find it hard to transition practice ideas into real world(gig) application"

"I’m not coming up with creative, feel good, sounding good results"

"I seem to be struggling to incorporate musicality into my practice"

"I still feel a gap between my skills alone in my studio and on stage"

Luckily, you've made this simple:

I just need to build you a resource that will...

  • Allow you to focus enough to go deep on the important things without worrying you're missing out on something else you should be practicing

  • Give you a tool kit to differentiate between things worth "going deep" on, and things you can "shelve until later"

  • Give you a way to gauge when you've "had enough" of something difficult, so you don't burn out and end up "dinking around" (as one guy put it) for the rest of the session

  • Show you how to "build a bridge" between your practice and real-world situations without "thinking" on gigs

  • Show you a way to make your practice just a little more whimsical and creative - reflective of improvisational music, which is what we're doing here


If you've seen the channel, you've heard my story.

I conquered my own frustrations with my playing by recording myself, then comparing myself to my drum heroes.

Recently, I realized…

I practice differently from most people.

Most people are packing 3, 5, 10, even 12 different things into a single day!

They’re spending tons of time doing stuff like warmups, rudiments, and books.

You’d think all that material would be making them feel confident in their progress, but it’s not.

Instead, they’re more anxious than ever.

But gradually, I started teaching my system to students.

And getting comments like this:

Just wanted you let you know that I am enjoying the lessons a lot. It seems to be a very definitive process you have going on. My time is already so much better, and my precision with getting consistent sounds is really noticeable.
— Brian, Coaching Student

This past fall, you told me your frustrations with practice.

That’s why I’m offering the complete system to you:


The Practice course

The first and only course to address the root causes of the three most common frustrations with practice:

  1. You can’t focus on any one thing enough to make progress

  2. Every time you do, you feel “FOMO” about all the stuff you’re not doing

  3. You don’t see the results of your practice when you play in live situations

I spent weeks going through survey results, and I noticed 3 problems…

Everybody was practicing arbitrary stuff without clear goals

That’s why you had no idea when to stick with something and when to move on, and no connection to the material

Nobody had any way of knowing if they were “getting better”

Every kind of learning requires a short feedback loop. But the drummers I heard from were just continuing to practice the same stuff for arbitrary lengths of time, totally unconnected to whether it was helping

Finally, nobody was practicing what they wanted to play

You wouldn’t expect chess to improve your skydiving…

…but that didn’t stop hundreds of drummers from practicing exercises and rudiments totally unconnected to what they actually wanted to play.

I thought designing this course would be a challenge.

But the stuff you’re struggling with is mostly low hanging fruit.

What if there was a better way

For the past decade, I’ve been refining a system to practice better, in less time, with zero FOMO.

  • Some days I can do as little as 25 minutes, and still not worry I’m missing out on anything

  • I never worry there’s something better I could be practicing, because my system gives me a way to incorporate anything I want, when it becomes important enough

  • Finally, I see results of my practice immediately in my playing

It’s this system that I now offer to you.

Here’s exactly what’s inside:

frequently asked questions


I’m Already in the Coaching Course - Shouldn’t I finish that first?


I designed the Practice Course with one thing in mind:

  • For students already in the coaching course, the Practice Course is a compliment that won't increase the workload or complication of the coaching course, but will enhance the experience

  • For drummers who haven't taken the Coaching Course, or who have "graduated", the Practice Course will teach you to 2x, 5x, even 10x the productivity you're getting from your own practice routines

Here's what you told me you were struggling with:

Lack of ability to focus enough to "go deep" on something...

Lack of confidence that what you're practicing are the "right things"...

Constant FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), and Shiny Object Syndrome, and feeling like you're "in a rut"...

Difficulty applying what you're practicing to what you're actually playing when you perform.

Based on weeks of analysis of your survey results, and back-and-forths with dozens of you, I developed a method which...

  1. Is completely different from how most of you are currently practicing, even if there's some superficial resemblance

  2. Addresses the root causes of all of your concernss.



if you're not seeing the fastest progress you've ever made, you have 90 days to get a full refund.

Try the Practice Course for 90 days. If you don't see the fastest progress you've ever made after completing at least modules 1 and 2, I insist that you get 100% of your money back.

Why am I so confident offering this guarantee? I'm going to be expecting a lot out you, and I know you expect a lot out of yourself as well. It's my job to deliver on my end, with a course that not only satisfies your needs, but exceeds your expectations.

So I want you to rest easy. I'll stand behind my material. If you spend your money and don't see progress after completing two full modules, just tell me, and I'll refund your money.

I found myself saying ‘awesome’ out loud when you were talking about the reductive approach to practicing.
