Making A Difference - In Their Own Words

Mark’s Testimonial


I’m getting a lot out of the Drummer’s Almanac. I’ve been playing for many years, but what I’m finding really valuable is getting right back to basics and replacing some not so good habits (through being mostly self-taught), with better ones. It’s a great discipline for me to slow things right down and ‘re-program’ myself. Plus there’s plenty there to stretch…

The (Accents with Feet) are feeling some much better and more natural after doing them for a few months! …and Wow! (About the 6/8 Sprint exercise) This one actually made me sweat!! My left forearm was on fire by the end of round two. Thanks!!

What is amazing about your site is, even if I can not not keep up with certain syllabus in your lessons I do not get discouraged like I would with other instructional videos. Even If I am having trouble with a sticking or something I can’t grasp right away, not only did you help me but…

Craig’s Testimonial


I really like your site and have had memberships to a few of them. I have been playing for over 30 years and a yamaha, remo vic sabian endorser for over 20. The #1 reason I signed up at the drummers almanac is to have you help me design a practice routine…

Jay Fenichel is the real deal! If you are serious about drumming and music you must give this site a try. This has done more for my playing in one year then anything I have ever done in the first ten years of my playing by far.

TDA is a good way to practice whenever you have time to spare. It helps me to update my rusty skills and even improve them! Jay is a enthusiastic teacher and like my big brother who is watching me, and encourages to practice every day to get some daily routine and become a better drummer!

Hi Jay, I’m happy to be a part of the drummers almanac. I just need to know the site and have a routine. I Hope your site will give me a little inspiration!

Nathan’s Testimonial


I have been using TDA now for many years. Having only ever had a few formal lessons in my youth, and knowing how much there is to learn to become a better drummer, I am thankful that I found Jay’s site. I feel that my knowledge of drumming theory has increased exponentially, my practice routines have become more routine, easier to do and more fun, and my physical skills are improving every…

Brendan’s Testimonial


I’ve bought into Jay’s purpose behind the site – to help with and maintain a regular practice routine. You can take lessons with the greats and buy the top 10 books as voted by Modern Drummer magazine, but that in itself won’t make you a great player. The deciding factor has to be the time you put in away from the public…
