My own fault - didn't pay attention to what I was buying, and my memory isn't anywhere near good enough to listen to someone rattle off a list of file formats for five minutes and get much out of it. In written form, this would be worth several times its cost. It should be in pdf format not mp3.

Featuring world-renowned drummer, solo artist, author and educator, Tommy Igoe, Getting Started On Drums is an entertaining and educational way for beginning drummers to learn the right way to play right from the start. Covers all the concepts a new drummer needs, such as Setting Up and Unpacking your new drums, The Bass Drum, The Bass Drum Pedal, Rack Tom-Toms, Floor Tom-Toms, The Snare Drum, The Hi-Hat, The Power Square, Cymbals and Stands, The final Tune-Up, Start Playing!
This is definitely geared towards the compete beginner who has just bought their first kit. If that is you then this would be an excellent purchase. Tommy comes across as very personable and has a positive and supportive teaching approach. The first section deals with setting up your kit and I found this to be a lot more helpful than I thought it would be. The second half offers some basic grooves and fills. It does skip through these at a fast pace without maybe empathizing enough the need for the painstaking hours of practice time in order to master even these basic patterns. However, each example is available at a slowed down pace on the DVD. As a stand alone this is a very good resource but I would recommend that you combine it with some of the classic instructional books (Stone, Reed, etc.) as your experience and confidence levels grow. I re-watched this DVD recently and still found it to be a very useful tool in my practice regime. The video quality is not great and I had to crank the volume a bit. I did like the fact that he employed the services of his students (at various levels of proficiency) in order to demonstrate the grooves. This DVD definitely demonstrates the value of getting one-on-one tuition with a pro who is also a good instructor.
I have wanted to play the drums since I was 17 years old but of course life gets in the way. Well I'm much older now and have finally bought my first set of drums. This DVD is AMAZING! Tommy takes you from how to hold the sticks to playing a cool beat in a short amount of time. Very easy to follow and understand and play along. Tommy encourages you throughout the DVD as well, which is like having your own personal instructor. Very relaxed, easy going pace. Not overwhelming at all for a new player! Well done!
This DVD takes you all the way from pulling drums out of the box to putting them together to holding the sticks to playing simple beats and grooves. The instruction is clear and includes some of Tommy Igoe's students, ending with some playing of his own. Perfect for the beginner with little or no drumming experience. Highly recommended.BTW, a few extra tips for beginners:1. Resist the urge to buy tons of drums and cymbals. You'll quickly feel overwhelmed. Start simple and add pieces as you get better.2. Learn everything with both matched and traditional grips on the sticks.3. Find a drumming instructor who is interested (my first one seemed bored), encouraging, and challenging (makes you count out loud when you don't feel like it, makes you play music you don't like, pushes you when you need it).4. If you have trouble playing something, SLOW DOWN. There's an almost irresistible urge to play too fast when you start. Resist it.5. Face the fact that learning drumming requires a lot of repetition, especially when you start practicing the 40 rudiments. Use this repetitive work as a contemplative practice, a kind of drumming meditation. That's what the shamans did in traditional cultures.6. A long practice session that feels crappy or difficult does more for you than a short one that goes smoothly. Let your brain and body learn in their own time.7. Have fun! As the film says, drumming is not a race, nor is it a competition or something you "should" do. Let it be a source of satisfaction. Use it creatively.
This DVD set is essential to any beginner. The first DVD in the set (setting up; getting started) was immensely helpful in setting up the drum set out of the box.Part one walked you through the entire assembly and CORRECT set up. Don't depend on the limited instructions that come with the drums.Part two of the first DVD had my 15 year-old beginner drumming like a seasoned drummer within an hour with some basic sets.I'll update the review when she gets into the 2nd DVD (Groove Essestials) but if it produces results anywhere close to the what the first DVD provided, I wll be very pleased. Well worth the $30 investment.
This is a really good DVD. Tommy is very thorough, and starts at the beginning. He really is a great teacher. I'm a music teacher myself, and let me just say, as a teacher, this guy knows how to convey ideas and share knowledge like a pro. He explains what he is doing and why, and is positive and encouraging the whole time. The drums aren't like other instruments where you take it out of the case and start playing--you have to put them together (at least the first time), and if this is done wrong, you have set yourself up for difficulty later on. Tommy shows you how to set up your kit correctly, including everything from assembling isolation mounted toms to tuning resonant heads to bass drum pedal setup. Again, as a music teacher, I can tell you that getting started right is half the battle. (Okay, maybe not half, but you get the idea.) And rather than playing everything himself (which might give you a "shucks, I can't do that" attitude), he has students demonstrate most of the beats (which gives you subliminal encouragement-"if a kid can do it, then so can I"). And if you are under 16, then you get to see what someone your age can do. Tommy chose the right beats to start with, too--cool grooves that if you can master (which you can) you will want to keep practicing. This DVD has it all--fills, grooves...even some play-alongs. And yes, just to inspire you, Tommy plays one piece at the end, but somehow it doesn't have a "show-off" feel. It's more like Tommy saying, "See how cool the drums can sound? If you practice and stay dedicated, you can do this too." Or at least that's the way I felt when I watched it. The camera work is good, the sound quality is good, and Tommy is awesome. Honestly, I can't recommend it strongly enough. Nice work, Mr. Igoe!

My daughter loves this show, I love the lessons it teaches. God is center.
The show has really developed and the acting is better now. The message is just like my life and the music is so, so, so, good !
We showed a clip in our middle school service and the leaders were amazed at how well it captivated the attention of our students. This is very well produced and challenges students to love Jesus more, on their level! Singers are very talented and the content is very entertaining.
Great Show! My kids love it and unlike much of the Disney stuff out there it portrays good adult/child relationships and good teen attitudes.

Ken Burns: The National Parks - America's Best Idea
Ken Burns is of course, a great documentary filmmaker, perhaps the greatest ever. (What other documentary filmmaker has an “effect” named after him?) But with “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” Burns is transcendent. It is not only a great, great documentary, it needs to be seen by every American. In Utah, where I live, there is a current furor over President Obama possibly declaring a new National Monument at Bear’s Ears. This is a situation where environmentalists want it, Native Americans want it, but the state government, certain locals and certain corporate interests are dead set against it, claiming it will cost jobs, damage the economy, violate state rights, impede needed development etc. How extraordinary to find that these same competing viewpoints have been going on for over 150 years ever since Abraham Lincoln set aside Yosemite as the Nation’s first protected area. The 12-hour documentary has astounding footage of the parks and their fauna and flora. It has heroes and villains galore. I suppose what is truly astonishing is how the heroes, like John Muir, Charles Young, George Bird Grinnell, Stephen Mather, Harold Ickes, Stuart Yudall, Adolph Murie, and Presidents Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Jimmy Carter, could face down such powerful opposition and persevere. It is a good reminder to us to neither be shocked by greedy ignorance, nor to give up our efforts. The documentary also brilliantly interweaves history and peoples’ stories as the Park system evolves. It covers almost 200 years of history, but if there is one take home point it is this: the National Parks remind us that we are Americans first, not Utahns, not Texans, not New Yorkers – we are Americans. This is OUR country and we must preserve it. I have had a fortunate life. I have been to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and seen new land being created from molten lava. I have taken river trips through the Grand Canyon, Canyonlands, and Dinosaur National Monument. I have done extensive hiking from the rivers in those parks. I have seen the great redwoods and sequoias, I have seen the Tetons, and yet as I watched this documentary, I find myself wishing that I had spent more time when I was younger, truly immersing myself in as many parks as I could. Not driving through them, but walking, sitting, being. I can only wish that my children and grandchildren can experience this unique heritage that Ken Burns has shown us so beautifully.
I'm unsure why this wonderous film was not recorded on high definition film of some kind. I'm sure I've got DVDs with better resolution. Obviously the old black and white pictures and footage won't hold up, but when current scenes are filmed, the results are no better than VHS. I see no reason at all to spring for the Blu-ray version. Compared to Planet Earth one or two, this film might as well have been filmed on 16mm stock in the 1980's. I'm seriously disappointed enough to send it back. Maybe. $61 is a lot to cough up for so-so visuals.Otherwise it's a typical top notch documentary by Ken Burns as others have more eloquently stated.
I love anything Ken Burns does. It amazes me that sometimes I care about a subject that I hadn't really cared about before because of his documentaries (Lewis and Clark, Jack Johnson, Jazz). I love the national parks, but this documentary makes me want to see every national park there is. It is an amazing history of all of the parks, but especially focuses on Yosemite and Yellowstone. I have only visitied Yosemite but it is an amazing place as are so many of our national parks. This documentary really shows how almost every national park had one advocate for the park that really drove home the point of making that place a national park. From John Muir in Yosemite to the Rockerfellers for the Grand Tetons, this is a great backstory to some of the most beautiful places in the world. And much like today, people throughout american history were always trying to tarnish and ruin our places of beauty by either getting rid of them or trying to make them side show carnivals. This is a must see and might be my favorite of Ken Burns work, and I absolutely love the Civil War and Baseball, so that is no small compliment.
Ken Burns and his team do another great job, this time on telling the history of how the National Park system got started in the US and how it's evolved over the years. Six generously-long episodes give detail that's almost staggering. They interview Park Rangers, people who visited the parks, people who knew or are related to some of the key figures in the making of the parks. Many of the names were completely new to me -- sure, who hasn't heard of John Muir, or at least heard of Theodore Roosevelt's help in making the Park system? But most of the people behind the saving of one place or another by getting it added to the Park system were just private citizens who believed enough to work hard for a long time to see that it was saved. The photography, as always, is superb and the story is something you won't want to miss.
After reading its description I expected to learn a lot about the history of the National Parks, and it really delivered. Don't be fooled into thinking each film is about one park and what you would see there, or something else that has been done a thousand times before. This is all about how the National Parks came to be. As an added bonus, the folks they interviewed were fantastic, and have some really engaging and captivating stories about the parks, or their own personal experiences. There are a lot of stirring and impassioned moments, and the stories are as gripping as the actual information about the parks. This adds to the already very interesting information you came for, so you end up walking away with a little something extra.
