The best beginning hand drumming DVD/Book in the market
Mara Solano | Eugene, Oregon United States | 03/24/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD/Book combo is the best product I have seen in the market to learn about hand drumming. It is fun, interactive and really easy to follow, and you don't need to have any previous knowledge about music.

I totally recommend it to everybody who wants to learn hand drumming in a fun and interactive way.

Besides you can use this product with your family and friends, a really cool way to spend time together, and do something different that everybody can enjoy, no matter what age they are.

Give it a try, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!
Surprisingly liberating
C Nelson | Taos, New Mexico | 04/14/2008

"I've never been a drummer nor particularly musical but once I took a class from Jill I knew I'd found something surprisingly liberating and exciting. This book/DVD combo is a fantastic opportunity to have fun in a new kind of way. At this price it also makes a memorable and affordable gift for someone. Jill has brought together musicianship, psychological health, and community building in a completely accessible way. Quite a package that should be in every family's library."
Good all around introduction to hand drumming
E. Houghton | East Texas | 09/09/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this DVD for my family who want to begin hand drumming. I rented it first from Netflix and found it was easy to follow and covered the basics of hand drumming pretty thoroughly and was fun to play along with. We bought it and have used it to begin our own little drum circle. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that is didn't give me quite enough info on picking a good drum for a beginner. She does cover the different types (i.e. wood or synthetic, real skin or synthetic heads, etc) and talks a little about the differences but being true beginners it would have been nice to have a little bit more recommendation on which is the easiest for beginners to start with. The DVD is easy to navigate through and find specific lessons you want to play. The instructor is pleasant and easy to follow. My 3 year old likes to play along with the exercises as well."
Perfect for all ages and levels of expertise
G. Rapport | Lawrenceville, NJ | 04/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've played set drums for 20 years and wanted to expand my capabilities to include hand drums. I found this method to be incredibly well-structured. It gave me what I need to add congas to my professional show. At the same time, it is perfect for my 10-year-old students and everyone in between. The method shows all the basic techniques in easy to understand demonstration form. It provides a solid foundation while leaving room for the player to find their own sounds. Sager adds a touch of personal warmth and caring that make this method uniquely engaging. I heartily recommend it to anyone who wants to have fun while learning."
