Drum Guru - 2013 Drummies Award

Drum Guru, the leading new educational drumming iOs app, has been chosen as one of Apple’s “New and Noteworthy” apps, getting featured attention in the App Store. Containing drum lessons with the world's best drummers, Drum Guru has been steadily growing in popularity, and has now garnered the attention of Apple—chosen from among the more than one million apps available on the market.

Drum Guru features lessons with some of the greatest drummers in the world, such as Steve Gadd, Steve Smith, Chad Smith, David Garibaldi, Dennis DeLucia, Mike Portnoy, George “Spanky” McCurdy, Tommy Igoe, Mike Mangini, and more. The lessons are focused on a wide variety of topics, including rock, jazz, rudiments, fills, and much more, and are organized by difficulty level into conceptual packs to allow customers to choose which concepts they would like to work on. Each lesson consists of a short video by one of the expert teachers, coupled with notation for practice. The notation is presented in a “practice mode” which allows the user to play along, change the tempo, and practice with a click.

Founded by Rob Wallis, who is also president of Hudson Music (the world's leading producer of educational drum media), Drum Guru utilizes all the capabilities of the iPhone and iPad to present a truly educational and useful app. “We are thrilled that Apple has recognized Drum Guru, especially because of how many great apps we were chosen from. It is great they featured something based on drumming” said Wallis. “My team and I have worked extremely hard to create something that is new and different and very usable by drummers, and we are really excited by this recognition and all the great feedback we have been getting on the app.”

Drum Guru is a free app, with the lesson packs available as in-app purchases. Customers are advised to check out the catalog inside Drum Guru frequently, because new packs are constantly being released.
