About us

We founded Rudimental Drummers to share the wonderful tradition of drumming

and to dissolve the boundaries between different styles of music.

We are a worldwide community of drummers, a connection between different styles of drumming, different musicians and their different habits of drumming. We are a large online platform for drummers, where they can learn from each other, take note of different styles and share this wonderful tradition with future generations. 

We support spreading an immemorial tradition of rudimental drumming all over the world. We share and sell sheet music. We try to give every drummer the best practice experience possible with our RD Pads. We help ensembles and marching bands with composing their music or drills. We give drummers the opportunity to share their passion through stunning apparel and we directly share the tradition ourselves by doing demonstrations and clinics.  

What's in the name...

ru·di·ment

A fundamental element, principle, or skill, as of a field of learning

We are Rudimental Drummers. That means that we are familiar with the fundamental elements of the drumming vocabulary, like the paradiddle, flam and drag and that the compositions that we play are based on these elements, or rather 'rudiments'. 

But there is also a deeper meaning about our identity as Rudimental Drummers. We aim to be a fundamental principle for every drummer. Knowing us and taking adventage of our services, gives any drummer a solid base of knowledge about the drummers community and playing drums.

Meet the founders of RD

It’s awesome to see the exponential growth of the Rudimental Drummers platform. It’s a pleasant acknowledgement of our intentions; that this really works. The thing that motivates me beyond anything else is sharing my passion with more people every day. It’s my personal goal to keep this up for a long time.

Perhaps the oldest cliché there is: You’re never too old to learn! Over the last couple of years I realized that it’s a cliché because it is the truth. The world of Rudimental Drumming is an inexhaustible source of challenges for every drummer at any level, which until 5 years ago I hardly knew anything about. This exceptional rudimental adventure has lifted my skills as both drummer and instructor to a higher level and opened my eyes to other styles and worlds. It’s immensely satisfying and energizing to share this with younger ánd older generations of drummers around the world

Where we come from
