In this lesson, we had the pleasure of having Tony Royster Jr. out to film a lesson on Creative Concepts. Just deciding on a topic was very hard as there was so many awesome things that Tony can show us. So we decided to choose a few and call the lesson Creative Concepts.

Drumeo would like to thank Roland Canada for helping put on this event. For more information on Roland Drums, go here:
