What is The Modern Beat?

The Modern Beat is an online drumset lesson company that delivers top-quality lessons to drummers of all levels all over the world. 

We offer courses in different areas of drumset playing ranging from fundamentals to advanced techniques to 'specialty techniques' such as brushwork and limb independence. 

The Modern Beat is a resource which can be both a learning and a teaching tool

The simple not-s-simple task of being able to provide the whole learning experience for every kind of drummer is our mission. How will we know if we achieve that? Well, feedback from students is one thing, but just having that as our pledge to you, the customer, drives us every day to produce the highest quality lessons which will help you get where you want to be in your drumset playing faster. 

A note from The Modern Beat Founder, Tom Pierard..

"One of the biggest struggles I've had to overcome in my own drumming career is figuring out how what I'm practicing is relevant to where I see myself as a musician. The funny thing is, it usually was relevant - I just needed someone to show me how. I couldn't always find that kind of guidance easily, so I had to develop my own systems to make my practice the most effective it could be. Since then I've spent years touring, teaching and recording on an international level, and I've started The Modern Beat as a way to connect with drummers like me, who want to learn at their own convenience but don't want to miss out on the good stuff!"


"Let me make this clear - this is not your normal drum exercise book. This resource doesn’t contain rows of every possible variation that you're required to sit in a room and practice for ten hours a day. Instead, you’ll learn how to develop exercises specific to you and the sound you want from your drums. What you will gain from this is a vocabulary and a musical freedom that's not limited to what’s in these pages, but instead one that is self sustaining and always growing."

"Our main aim as drummers is to provide time and groove, but aside from these essential elements, this resource will teach you the skills to say exactly what we want to say and how you want to say it through the drumset."
