"THERE'S A LOT MORE!
GET IT ALL!"
I'll make it WELL WORTH YOUR WHILE!
I WANT TO GIVE YOU A GREAT, NEW FUTURE!
You may enroll the OLD WAY, BY CLICKING HERE.
Or, READ ON . . .
What follows is a somewhat different and unique idea. It may help raise you
to rhythm-guru status, put money in your pocket . . . and allow you to help
millions of people at the same time . . . all for a mere $45!
HERE IS THE BOTTOM LINE . . .
I'm searching for ways
to help all serious drum students acquire ALL 125-lessons of this structured
drumset course, without any costs!
I've done that! Look around the site. See it all!
If you've clicked around within this site, you've seen what a vast resource it is. I'm convinced it is the best and most
complete course of it's kind, on earth.
This well established website location has been online
since 1994, but I'm risking it all, to try something new here.
For years . . . I've sold password memberships to this complete course
you are visiting and seeing now. Between 1994 and 2007, EACH AND EVERY student 'PAID' to
study all these same lessons, via a membership plan.
The old plan worked fine for me! It has given this old retired drummer a decent retirement
income over the past 13 years . . . But, now it's time for me to give back,
in a BETTER way! I want to do more than I've done previously!
The (old style) password
memberships, paid for maintenance of the site and paid me too; But the 'less advantaged' folks were left out. Many
of the less privileged people (in 3rd World countries) simply couldn't afford to
pay for membership, in order to study all the lessons. In some countries, the previous cost of this course
might represent a years wages!
That has always haunted me. I've always searched for a BETTER way! Maybe this is it! I've always wanted to teach
THOSE people too . . . even though they simply can't afford the complete course. (You would
be amazed at how fluently many of them read, write and speak, English!)
Intermediate and Advanced students, look in the left column! I want to show you a special way
YOU CAN MAKE MONEY, AND RISE TO 'RHYTHM-GURU' STATUS AT THE SAME TIME.
With this web page you are reading, I'm attempting to launch a new idea that
could help make most of this material free to virtually everyone in the World.
I'm working to completely dispose of all the encryptions
and all the cloak and
dagger stuff, too.
I just want it to be free . . . yet pay it's own way! I'm not trying to get rich here.
I've thought about this new idea long and hard for many months. Finally I've decided to
throw caution to the wind, and give this new plan a shot, right here on the web page
you are currently reading!
I want to see what YOU think about it! Your response (or lack of response) to this will tell
me what I need to know.
Advanced and Intermediate, look left again. You need this!
YOU CAN MAKE MONEY, AND RISE TO 'RHYTHM-GURU' STATUS AT THE SAME TIME.
Know it or not . . . It costs a LOT of money, energy and time, to maintain
and keep all this online! There are many costs and expenses associated
with providing a resource such as this. Bills MUST be paid . . . or it all goes down in flames!
Think about all that as you read . . .
Check out the courses (products) in the left column! You can get ALL of them free, with a simple donation
of $45.00 or more. Most of those courses will show you how to put the $45 right back into your
own pocket, A THOUSAND TIMES!
BUY ONE PRODUCT, GET ALL THE OTHERS FOR FREE!
My idea is to get 'some' GOOD people like you to invest in THEMSELVES, AND HELP ME KEEP THIS
DRUM COURSE FREE AND ONLINE FOREVER, at the same time. This way, the investor-contributor receives a lot
more for their money! Their contribution, or investment in themselves TAKES THEM TOWARDS
GURU-STATUS. Meanwhile their investment goes on to pay the bills here, and keep the 125-lessons of the course free for others too,.
Your donation will help keep all the (125) free lessons, free. This is a win/win idea all the way around!
In other words . . . I want to try to entice the people who
are not impoverished, to study my additional courses to HELP pay for those who can not pay. The plan, is to simply get
those who have the funds, to INVEST DEEPER INTO THEIR OWN FUTURE, while helping other less fortunate
people at the same time. This way . . . EVERYONE gets the 125-lesson course for free, and those who
donate, recieve much, much, more. Check out the products in the left column and you'll see exactly what I mean.
Those products will teach you how to make money with a drum set. They are NOT available anywhere but here.
Are you getting the picture? It's one-stop shopping for all your drumming educational needs!
This is the only course in drumming you'll ever need! You'll need to study the lessons to realize
the truth in that statement. I encourage you to do just that.
The investors/contributors will gain MORE than they spend, as they study
my exclusive and deeper courses, but their investment will help keep the free
125-lesson course afloat! They'll be helping other
(less fortunate students) study the course, absolutely free!
NOTE: THIS IS A TRIAL TEST! I'm planning to leave
all the free lessons you see at this site, free and online for 6 months beginning today,
june 05, 2009. If there are consistently enough dontations between now and November 5th
to pay expenses, I'll leave everything up for free, permanently.
If it doesn't work, I'll revert back to the old commercial way. I'll go back to charging individually for each product, hide
most of my lessons and forget about the goodness of human nature. In other words, I will have realized
that human nature really isn't as good as I had naively hoped.
We all know there's no better investment, than to invest in yourself! Am I right or wrong?
Think about that for a very long moment! Then . . . read-on to see where I'm
going with all this.
CONSIDER THIS VERY IMPORTANT POINT . . .
Please be aware that
if you were to study these VERY SAME (web site) lessons with me in my private studios, they would cost
you in excess of $2,000, at one-lesson-per-week, over a two or three year period. You are seeing them
all for free here, and you can study at your own pace!
Here online . . .
Many of the really talented students can 'ACE' this entire 125-lesson course, in under 6 months,
and sometimes less! People tend to learn at a much faster rate, here online, than they will
in private classes. Believe it! It's true! You will not need private lessons if you take
the lessons that are here, for free! These are exactly the same lessons I'd be giving
you in my private studios at a rate of $50 per hour. Do the math!
It's a great value, even at the OLD price of $57!
If you'll do your part, DONATE AND RECEIVE ALL THE PRODUCTS,
these free lessons will be free and online for many generations after I'm
dead and gone!
40 years from now . . . that measly $45 dollars will seem rather insignificant
if I can teach you how to make that much every hour of your life, for the
next 40 years!
Are you beginning to see where this is headed?
ANYWAY . . .
You will determine the outcome of the free site, by responding (or not responding)
to what you'll read below . . .
Nothing is EVER free these days! Everything costs SOMEONE something, in one way or another!
It costs a lot of money to provide valuable free content such as this.
Who should foot the bill?
In my heart, I want to GIVE my 50 years of teaching and playing experiences away, but
I know that my heirs will not.
ANSWER THIS! Should I, (or my heirs) pay money out of pocket . . . to
offer all this for free? How long will it last, that way?
This resource MUST pay it's own way . . . or it will die
when I do, (and I'm getting pretty old). I'm now 67 years old, and some of
those years were pretty wild years! (I've always burned the candle at both ends.)
Now that I'm in my twilight years, I want to put this whole drum course on perpetual auto-pilot, and keep it
online indefinitely for many, many, generations, after I'm gone. I'm testing this new model (or
donation-investment plan) for the site, here. If it works, it'll be online for a VERY long time,
even after I go to the big jam-session in the sky.
I have a few years left to watch it
grow. It's success will depend ENTIRELY on those of you who are selfless enough to CARE
and HELP other less fortunate people.
If HUMAN-NATURE proves itself to be that good,
this site may endure forever. (If not . . . I'll probably be happier and much better
off, where ever I go . . . once I'm outa here, haha.)
Right now . . . I'm still
naive enough and stupid enough, to believe that 95% of ALL people are GOOD people, and only 5% are bad. We'll
see if it proves to be true! Which of those two groups do you belong to?
Yes! I hold some secrets that I just do NOT give away! Those products in the left column
contain priceless knowledge that you won't find anywhere but here. Be sure to check each of them
- You'll be helping others study for free, as you also actually
learn to make a VERY GOOD living, behind a set of drums, using my 'NOT SO FREE'
methods, in the left (product) column.
The other parts of the course (free lessons) that I'm now giving away are worth more than $2,000 in the private
sector! That much is ALREADY free to you, and everyone, at this new site! Click your way around
the top left column, 'Lesson Menus'; You'll quickly see the gift I'm giving,
as you click around to all the free lessons. There's nothing like this anywhere else
on the Web, or anywhere in the World!
Guess what! My 50+ career has been very long, and very lucrative! I have
additional secrets to sell . . . but those secrets are only for those who
see the value in all this, and are willing to pay for that EXTRA SPECIAL knowledge.
For a mere $45 donation, I'll ALSO reward you with all the additional studies (products) that could be
worth 10,000 times the $45 investment I'm asking for!
Yes! I have A LOT MORE, that isn't free!
No! You do NOT have to be a seasoned-pro to make a lot of money behind a set
GET THAT IDEA OUT OF YOUR HEAD, RIGHT NOW!
You just need MY SPECIAL SECRETS! But . . . Those are my 'most precious secrets'
I'm talking about! I just don't give them away to anyone! They're in the left column of this
web page. Check them out!
They're priceless! I'm saving them for YOU, as a way to entice YOU into helping keep
the rest of this 125-lesson course free for everyone else around the globe!
DONATE $45, AND YOU CAN GET THOSE PRECIOUS SECRETS TOO, AS YOU HELP KEEP THIS COMPLETE
COURSE ALIVE FOR OTHERS!
THINK ABOUT THIS, AS WELL . . .
You'll gain download access to all 125-lessons at the hidden site, plus you'll
receive ALL the following short courses, in gratitude for your $45. It's a 'contribution-donation-investment'
There's no way to lose on this!
Even if you do not study ANY of the lessons,
you'll still be helping thousands of other people WHO ARE VERY SERIOUS ABOUT
Yes! All paid members (those who donate $45 or more) will also be allowed to download
all the lessons in this site, to their own computer. The download is only available to

has been in development since the mid-1960s. The objective is to take you from beginner to pro status,
within the LEAST amount of lessons!

in the exact way you need them.
