Q: Can I access your content and lessons in my country?
A: Yes! All of our videos are setup for adaptive bitrate streaming, so anywhere in the world where there is an internet connection, you can access all of the video content, even in regions where internet/modem speeds are not the fastest. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Q: What about on mobile and tablets?
A: Absolutely! Our entire site has been built on an adaptive and fluid platform, optimized for mobile and tablets. While there may be certain plugins on the site who’s versions are not fully optimized for mobile yet, all of our video and lesson content can be accessed and viewed on any device.
Q: I’ve watched your videos on YouTube and some of the lessons seem pretty advanced. I’m still a beginner drummer and I’m worried that if I enrol in one of your programs, it might be too difficult for me. Will I be able to benefit from your lessons?
A: A totally valid concern, but not to worry! We have created our training packs in such a way so that drummers of ALL experience levels will benefit. We have taken some of the most difficult concepts and broken them down in such a manner, so that even a brand new drummer can understand and begin to practice these concepts right away. On the flip-side, we have also taken some “simple” concepts and put a twist on them, so that even the most advanced drummers will still be challenged and find value in our training!
Q: I am not quite ready to start a paid training course. Do you offer free lessons anywhere on the site, so that I can sort of try them out first?
A: We sure do! You can sign up for your FREE membership here on the site, called the “Metal Apprentice.” Once signed up, you can access all sorts of free content, available to members only. You can also find lots of free lessons on our YouTube channel, as well as some additional “Fan only” lessons on the Metal Drumming Mastery Facebook page. Facebook fans have access to some additional, exclusive lessons not found here on the site or on YouTube.
Q: When I went to checkout my shopping cart, it said that I couldn’t purchase the training pack because I still needed to add the “Metal Apprentice” to my basket? What is this? I don’t want to purchase or pay for anything additional!
A: Not to worry! The “Metal Apprentice” is our FREE membership. Because our lessons are delivered online, you first need to create your own unique profile, so that may access any protected content. Once you have done that, you will be able to access all the free lessons and content, as well as add new training packs to your profile.
Q: I don’t have a Paypal account, can I still purchase your products?
A: Yes! So long as you have a major credit card, you can purchase and enrol in any of our training programs. All of our transactions are processed securely through Paypal, including major credit cards, we don’t see or handle ANY of this personal information on our site, so you will still be taken to their secure checkout site to complete your order.
Q: I’m not a “metal” drummer- are your lessons only for metal drummers?
A: Definitely not! Obviously we have a certain affinity and love for the heavier styles of playing here….but our skills development focuses on a BROAD range of skill-sets! Drummers of different styles will gain a HUGE benefit from our training, as it will expand their palette and allow them to introduce even more diversity into their playing, no matter the style! It is for this reason, that metal drummers will ALSO benefit from exposure to a variety of styles, which is why we don’t teach only the “metal” style of drumming. Our training is quite diverse!
