25+ years of progressive drumming experience, distilled into an easy-to-follow course.
The truth is, learning these skills can be hard – other online resources and drum schools tend to focus more broadly on ‘drumming’ – I focus specifically on progressive drumming.
You just need structured, easy-to-follow drum lessons, where you can learn at the perfect pace for you – and that’s what I’m offering.
Learn from me for just $20 per month.
Become a monthly subscriber and access a growing selection of drum lessons, TesseracT drum transcriptions, live stream re-plays, posts, and more.
The lessons I publish here are direct responses to questions and suggestions posted by my community of students.
Choose from a selection of buy-now drum lessons, courses, and TesseracT drum transcriptions – one-time payment, no subscriptions.
These lessons are designed to help you with concepts specific to progressive drumming, such as polyrhythms. I also create lessons covering specific TesseracT songs too.
Book a 1-on-1 lesson with me at your own convenience.
I host these on Zoom using the same camera and audio setup you’ll find in my pre-recorded lessons.
This experience is bespoke – I offer specific, detailed feedback on your playing, with exercises to help you reach the next level.
I’ll also put together a lesson plan for you to follow.
I get it, you want something for free before parting with any money – very wise!

I am absolutely loving it. I spend 4 hours+ a night on your website, learning parts of Nocturne and looping the exercises. Your drum parts are not only flavorful but also extremely great exercises in building fluidity, dexterity, and limb separation. I can already tell that my timing is better (even using my left foot which I NEVER do), I’m feeling more relaxed and mobile, and I’m starting to use each limb in different ways. This is seriously some amazing content. I’ve bought lessons from other drummers but this website is 100% my favorite of them all.

I’ve been a student of Jay’s for quite a while now and I have loved every minute of it!! Jay is a fantastic educator who can break down a complex concept into easy-to-manage chunks. This website is amazing, the videos are incredibly detailed, very well produced and each segment is short enough to feel as though you are not bombarded with too much info. I particularly like the feature where you can loop and slow down each section, you can even speed them up if you are a crazy person!! He’s not bad at transcribing proper music notation either. Would rate 5 out of 4 polyrhythms 😉

As a beginner drummer, I found learning and practicing on my own to be overwhelming. With Jay’s lessons, you are given bite-sized, easy-to-follow exercises that provide context for what you are learning. The ability to highlight and loop sections, and play the exercises at any speed, allows you to learn at your own pace and gives you full control over the courses.

One month in and I’m already feeling more confident with limb independence and technique.
I’ve played varying genres from classic rock and metal to reggae, but the intricacies of prog drumming have always given me my biggest challenge. I purchased the sheet music for TesseracT’s “Luminary” years back and had some luck learning enough of it, but this website brings a whole new level to drum education.
Jay breaks down incredibly complex segments into easy-to-digest sections and builds you up until the pieces fit together. Between the multiple camera angles, scrolling sheet music, and customizable tempo, there’s a combination suited for everyone.
This website is as close to in-person instruction from an industry pro as you can get. If you own drumsticks, I recommend signing up!
Give it a try!
All of the exercises I present can be easily customized to find the perfect starting point and speed for you. Simply use the speed adjustment setting on the video below to slow down, or speed up the video and music notation, in real-time.
You can also easily create looped sections too. Simply highlight the section you wish to loop and hit play (this works best in synthetic drum mode):
Ok, I’ve heard enough, I want lessons with Jay!
Glad to hear it! You have a few options:
