Let’s have fun building Mad Skills!

We developed our unique learning system based on experience teaching elementary, middle and high school percussion programs in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs since 2000.  

Mad Beatz Methods' books and clinics teach students how to practice warmups, reading, and performance pieces to a playlist of their favorite songs instead of a metronome, building listening skills and a love for drumming that will last a lifetime!

Grades 4 - 9

The most versatile and FUN beginning book on the planet!  Energize your group lessons and band class. 


Every page pairs with most songs from any beginning band book: 

  • "Lightly Row" x Dancehall beat 

  • "Ode to Joy" x Old School Hiphop 

  • "Carol of the Bells" x Afro-Cuban

AND it has 3 full YouTube playlists to support independent learning!

Grades 7 - 10
