Welcome to The Drum Set Coach Academy!

I will help keep you accountable so you get the results you need.
Take a look at our school in Colroado.

Hi!  I'm Henrique De Almeida

Not sure what to practice?  Have you bought a TON of drum books but none of them have given you the results you need?  My goal for you is to keep you accountable and focused in your drumming. 

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'm your guy.  I've helped thousands of students over the past 30+ years and I know how to get you results.
