How does this website work?

OrlandoDrummer.com is a growing collection of educational videos for drummers. You’ll find hundreds of Adam’s Lessons, Practice Loops, Interviews, and other videos. A new Lesson and Loop are added to the website every Saturday. Lessons and Loops can be purchased individually, and you can stream or download your purchases right away. You can also become an All Access Member for $24.99/mo, and gain instant streaming access to 100% of the content on the website.

How do I get the Lessons and Loops?

Easy! You have 2 simple options.
1. Create a free account.  This allows you to shop for only the Lessons and Loops you want. Purchased products will appear on your “My Purchases” page, where you can stream or download your lessons/loops instantly.
2. Become an All Access Member. Memberships allow you to stream 100% of the content on OrlandoDrummer.com, for $19.99/mo. Members also receive 40% off any content you want to download and keep forever.

What are Masterclasses?

Masterclasses are extended (video) Drum Lessons, designed to replicate the “Private Lesson” experience with Adam. Masterclasses average 45 minutes in length, and Adam can cover as many as 12 exercises in that time. Remember, the name “Masterclass” implies the level of depth in our study – not the difficulty of the lesson.  Masterclasses are for drummers of all ages and skill levels. A large majority of the educational content on OrlandoDrummer.com can be found in the Masterclasses.

What are Lesson Packs?

Lesson Packs include 5 to 10 separate Video Drum Lessons on a specific topic. All Lesson Packs are edited to the same quality you’ll find in Adam’s YouTube lessons. Expect multiple high quality camera angles, on screen notation, crystal clear explanations, and on-screen prompts. Lesson Packs are recommended for drummers who prefer to learn things “one at a time” rather than take on a larger musical concept.

What are Single Lessons?

Single Lessons are 10 minute drum lessons on Adam’s grooves, fills, licks, and chops. These are your “rainy day” lessons. No heavy concepts; just straight forward patterns, presented with on-screen notation, from a crisp overhead view. If you’ve ever found yourself digging through YouTube for a new fill, try grabbing a Single Lesson and end the hunt. 😉

What are Practice Loops?

Practice Loops are extended “Play Alongs” produced exclusively for drummers, by Adam and guitarist Joe Hodgin. The Practice Loops average 10 minutes in length, and have long repeating musical sections. (Ex: 16 bar verses, 16 bar choruses, 32 bar bridges, etc.)

Many drummers use Practice Loops as an alternative to a traditional metronome, but we recommend using them for whatever YOU want. Students have used our Loops for regular practice, drum covers, remixes, and drum competitions, just to name a few!

Each week, a new Practice Loop is added to the website, and you’ll find a variety of styles and tempos to choose from, including Rock, Blues, Funk, Metal, Country, Pop, Hip-Hop, and Electronic. Click the button below to watch a demo of every Loop available on the site.

Where is my content?

All Lessons and Loops on OrlandoDrummer.com can be found in 1 of 2 places. If you have purchased individual Lessons or Loops,  your content can be found in your My Purchases page. If you’ve created a Membership, you’re content is located in the Member Vaults. If you’re a Member, your My Purchases page will still hold everything you have purchased, even if you cancel your Membership.

I bought a Practice Loop, and I want to make a recording to post online. (Drum Cover, Shed Video, etc.) Is this allowed?

Yes – we love seeing your videos of the Practice Loops! We only ask that you credit “Orlando Drummer” when reposting your performance anywhere. Use the same etiquette you would if you were covering an artist or band’s song.

Why can’t I download Lessons or Loops directly to my phone?

Did you know that Apple prevents all internet downloads that aren’t through approved apps? In fact, most phones do not allow ANY internet downloads of videos from your web browser. (We see this fail 9/10 times.) For this reason, we strongly recommend downloading only to a desktop computer. You can then sync any of your content to your devices for offline playback.

Are these lessons Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced?

All of the above! Adam’s Lessons are heavily conceptual, so many of the concepts can be applied to any skill level. The descriptions of the lessons (as well as the preview videos in the store) offer an indication of each lesson’s difficulty.

Remember, with any specialized skill set, its tough to label as “beginner” or “advanced.” The content’s difficulty is relative to your current skill set on the drums, and on specific topics you’ve studied. All musical concepts are explored from their earliest stages, through Adam’s most advanced applications.

How do I cancel my All Access Membership?
