Drumming with Bruce Becker: Concepts & Philosophies

Bruce Becker

Share This


In this video,  Bruce Becker articulates a very clear narrative on some major building blocks in developing drum technique.

The concepts put forth are to establish a better mind body connection in an effort to heighten our awareness of how our body moves. By blending these ideas with the natural principles of physics, Bruce opens up the avenue of flow!


I’ve gotten some excellent new ideas and insights working with Bruce Becker’s DVD ‘Concepts & Philosophies’. Bruce has managed to distill many of Fred Gruber’s essential teachings into manageable portions. Combining Freddie’s ideas with his own teaching discoveries and methods, Bruce has created a program that is vital viewing for all serious students of the drumset. Highly recommended!
– Steve Smith (Journey)

Bruce is a gifted teacher and has the ability to explain his concepts perfectly as well as demonstrate them. He’s a terrific player too which is a bonus…he walks the talk
