Groove Freedom is a revolutionary new approach to help drummers develop independence on the drum set by practicing challenging patterns in a way that only today's technology can provide.

Groove Freedom has been recognized by MODERN DRUMMER MAGAZINE as one of the "iOS Apps Every Drummer Should Know", has been awarded the BEST DRUM APP OF 2015 by DRUM! magazine, and was also acknowledged as one of the Best Educational Products of 2016 as voted on by the readers of the Modern Drummer Magazine Reader's Poll!

Taking all of the content from Mike Johnston's GROOVE FREEDOM book, this app features:

* Over 150 lessons across 4 different chapters: Bass Drum Freedom, Snare Drum Freedom, World Groove Ostinatos, and 32nd Note Grooves - with more added regularly every month.

* Each lesson has up to 28 different exercises to practice using our unique "Groove Breakdown" view to help you see and hear what each limb plays for a groove.

* Practice the displayed pattern while listening to the drum audio, click track, or both. Adjust the tempo to fit your needs, and adjust the volume and stereo pan of each limb part separately or mute a part to simplify a challenging pattern.

* "Repeat Measure" and "Auto Tempo Increase" features to help to keep your practice focused.

* See your progress by viewing your entire practice history: what groove and exercises you practiced with informative statistics and graphs.

Requires iOS9 or greater.

The New Breed for the New Technology

This app is amazing. I through my iPad on my rack tom and practice this as often as I can. Simply one of the most affective practice tools a drummer has at their disposal. The first chapter is enough to practice for a decade and they are always adding more permutations, so their is a lifetime of study material. I think 15-20 a day for a month with this app and your playing will improve. Do that for a year and your coordination and groove will be a night and day difference from day one. Cannot recommend this enough. 🙏🏻

Amazing tool

The wonderful thing about this app is how it helps with so much else in your playing that you don't realize. You think you are just practicing this groove or that groove, but it is developing so many aspects of your playing that shows up when you go to practice/play other techniques, styles, etc. Invaluable!
