"Stanton Moore's online drum academy has been revolutionary for my playing. Instead of showing me countless things I theoretically "could" learn, he translates the actual grooves, fills, and sticking patterns that any drummer needs to drop into any funk, jazz and/or rock context.

Stanton is a rare breed of musician who can play with anyone in the world AND deftly explain how to play what he just played. He's also so helpful, genuine, and constructive on the forum, in webinars, and in his camps.

With Stanton, learning is fun but also very exciting because it is so readily applicable to the music I play.

I can't recommend SMDA enough to any drummer wanting to deepen his or her groove and flexibility around the drums.

What Sets SMDA Apart?
