Tommy Igoe: Great Hands For A Lifetime

DVDs / Videos | Drums

Publisher: Hudson Music
Author: Tommy Igoe
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
This new DVD from Tommy Igoe focuses on developing and maintaining the physical tools that are essential for every drummer and drumming application: their hands.

At the heart of this life-changing, career-extending system is the three-tier 'Lifetime Warmup' originally conceived in the 1950s by Tommy's father, Sonny Igoe. Featuring basic, intermediate and advanced levels, the Lifetime Warmup is a challenging routine that weaves its way through standard drum rudiments and motions. This nearly four-hour DVD includes Tommy demonstrating the basics of his system:

  • Matched and Traditional grip
  • Fulcrum Concepts
  • Rebound Strokes
  • Singles and Doubles
  • Check Patterns
  • The Five Families Of Rudiments
You also get a group demonstration with five of Tommy's students, including all three versions of the Lifetime Warmup. Included are a free, colour-coordinated, wall sized Lifetime Warmup poster and a compact fold-out guide courtesy of Evans Drumheads as well as a printable, 60-page eBook with instruction and exercises. Created by one of today's most successful and progressive drum educators, Great Hands For A Lifetime brings the no-nonsense, inspiring approach of the Groove Essentials series to hand technique and provides a proven alternative for drummers who wish to discover the full potential of their hands and stay healthy drumming over the decades to come.

          Highly recommended if you want to improve your technique. No over the top science and complicated systems like other dvd's. Brilliantly presented and very inspiring-worth every penny!

          Great hands for a lifetime is the best drumming DVD I've bought on this subject. I already had the Jojo Mayer DVD on the same subject but it is very technical and there was no written info to back up what you see on screen. Tommy Igoe's approach is superb, with something for everyone, beginner to pro. Full of useful hints and tips and not too technical. He's full of encouragement and the exercises are great. Can't recommend it enough. 4 hours long + 57 page printable book. Fantastic.

          Great help. I purchased this to assist with exercises for grip, flexibility and posture.
