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!

I'm a bass player and I use this app as a drum machine. It's so practical!

I would love if the app could open on the same page as I closed it. This way I would spend less time clicking around the app. Not a big issue, but it would help.

1st time drummer? Get this one.

I got an e-drum kit and with zero experience, paired with this app (with its terrific adjustable video loops) I jumped right into fundamental lessons very quickly - no fluff. You build on the complexity from there at your own pace. Get ROI for the price.
