About Henrique Gear My Library Contact Us PRIVATE LESSONS Login

"I help drummers who are frustrated, stuck, and distracted to become laser focused, goal oriented, and successful."

90% of drummers have bought stacks of drum books but have no idea what to practice.   

I coach drummers how to lay out a clear path to success and I keep you accountable and focused along the way.

Whether you're getting ready for a college audition/placement audition or wanting to improve your hand technique or learn how to get paid in the music business, I can help you.  I've helped thousands of students over the past 30+ years and I know how to get you results you want.

You can purchase online courses, attend live online seminars, attend drum clinics in the Colorado Springs, CO area or you can also study privately either online or in person at our drum school in Palmer Lake, CO.

Need Help With Your Upcoming Audition?

After administering hundreds of auditions, I kept seeing students with similar problems. No one was adequately preparing them for auditions. A lot of them were expected to do it all on their own or their teacher didn't have the insight to know what to help them with. I developed this course to help drummers know what to expect in an audition and to adequately prepare.
