Great App, Minor Non-Critical Flaws

Drum School is awesome for someone with a little knowledge of drum music notation, especially for self-pace learners. If you have a drum teacher, it’ll more than make up what I consider minor ‘bug’ fixes, like its missing 1 e & a, 1 an ah, or right/left for rudiments. The metronome line doesn’t snap well to the individual notes, so it can be somewhat troublesome to follow. On some tracks it’s totally inaccurate. The audio sometime distorts when you slow it down to learn some of the rhythms. Overall, very minor. I, personally, would highly recommend this app to a friend.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate it! We are constantly working on new updates and adding new content. We will keep in mind your requests for our next updates and will try to include some of them. We are aware that the metronome line can get a bit out of sync on certain devices/operating systems. (It’s just a guideline and you can turn it off in the settings if it gets confusing.) Please send us an email with your device/operating system details and we will try to figure out the audio problem, as it should not be happening. Thank you and happy drumming!

This is THE app

I have found the app I’ve been looking for. It has everything you will need to improve your drumming. I picked up a lot of bad habits over twenty years but this will help me break everything down and start afresh. It will teach you how to be a professional drummer and it has all the systematic practice tools you need. So shell out the small amount of cash for it. You won’t be disappointed.

Drum School-Keeps Getting Better!

Wow! This is an amazing drum app! Tons of exercises, grooves, and mini-lessons with a lot of capability to adjust tempos, set timers and track progress. Clearly a lot of thought went into writing this app. I really enjoy using this when I don’t quite have time for a full practice session Much appreciated!
