The #Breakthrough (breakdown) Instructional DVD (Drums from A to infinity)
I learnt how to drum without any proper music classes or lessons, and with this personal experience, I have been able to route out a suitable method to help beginners, intermediates and even advanced drummers learn and catch up faster than usual.
This took a lot of courage, strength, time, motivation but finally I can say The Breakthrough has been put together.
