What is the BRUSHES MASTERY COURSE?
It’s a complete course about playing brushes. It’ll prepare you to play brushes in many styles at rehearsal, on stage and in the recording studio. The BRUSHES MASTERY COURSE is a drum course like no other to increase your ability and confidence playing drum brushes.
I’m drummer Von Baron and I designed this course based on my 35 years of brushing and teaching experience. I’ve used drum brushes in many musical styles in the studio and on stage with artists like Stanley Jordan, Benny Golson, Eddie Henderson and Geoff Keezer.
Sign up today to become smooth, confident and masterful with your brushes!
