…Or “How I wrote Drummers of The Future”

Martijn: “In 2017, I wrote my very own drum method book:  DrummerMartijn’s Drum Book. What started as just some written-out exercises, gradually turned into a comprehensive drum method book of almost 100 pages. After a full year of testing the various exercises with my own students, the book was finally published by Show & Marching Music as ‘Drummers Of The future – Intermediate‘ in November 2018.”

Fifteen years of teaching experience had allowed Martijn to develop his own fresh approach on mastering and improving drum skills such as groove, coordination and technique. As a result, Drummers Of The Future is a modern and practical hand book for intermediate drummers.   

While being a student at HKU/Conservatory Utrecht (2016-2018), following the ‘Master of Music, Performance’-pathway (Mmus), Martijn wrote his master thesis about his research on drum education for intermediate drummers.
