Hi there, and welcome to Drum Helper! I’m Gideon, and I am the founder of the site. I have been playing the drums for over 16 years, and It’s my biggest passion in life.

Drum Helper has quickly become one of the web’s most popular free online drumming resources, and through this site, I share with you my expertise in all things drumming.

I’ve made it my mission to equip you with the skills, knowledge, and techniques you need to become the best drummer you can possibly be.

A little more about me: I took lessons throughout high school, and each day after school, I couldn’t wait to get home to practice on my Pearl Export drum set. I practiced a lot, but it didn’t feel like hard work. I was simply compelled to play!

During high school, I earned a music scholarship and performed in various bands, including the soul band, jazz band, and the first orchestra.

When I was 16, I achieved Grade 8 drums from the Trinity Guildhall Music School. I also became a finalist for the Young Drummer of The Year Competition.

After school, I studied music at the University of Westminster, where I continued to improve as a musician. It was here where I was truly able to develop my musical voice.

Although I am no longer touring for weeks at a time, I have played festivals and shows around the world. My performances span the USA, UK, Germany, Italy, France, Netherlands, Romania, Hungary, and Austria.

I still regularly perform gigs and events as a freelance drummer. Of course, I offer individual one-on-one drum lessons, and I enjoy helping my students progress and improve their abilities while enjoying the benefits of drumming!

Gideon’s Drum Set:

I currently play a Mapex IV Saturn drum set in an exotic Deep Water Maple Burl finish.

I also play Zildjian K Custom Special Dry cymbals, DW hardware, and a Tama Speed Cobra double pedal.
