Learn how to play drums!
Listen to playing examples! The V-Drums Tutor contains built-in songs covering a wide range of styles, from basic exercise patterns to songs with backing tracks. Beginners can start practicing immediately as the V-Drums Tutor respects all musical levels. Learning with visuals! There are two types of screens — “Notation” and “Game.” The “notation screen” shows a ball that bounces with the tempo, as well as the graphics of each pad that is hit, which will light up at the timing when played. In the “game screen,” blocks scroll downward at the timing of each pad played, so even if you can not read drum notation, you’ll find a practice challenge as if you were simply playing a game.
Evaluate your playing!
The V-Drums Tutor is able to evaluate the timing of your playing, and can display “O” and “X” symbols on the drum notation screen to show how you’re doing, timing wise. This visual feature automatically helps you to progress because you can see your mistakes. The game screen also provides a numerical score of your performance.
Practice the way that suits you!
When playing with the built-in songs, the V-Drums Tutor allows you to change the tempo, or practice with a specific region repeatedly. You can also choose a variety of playback methods, such as listening to only the drum part, or listening to only the backing track without the drum part (i.e., karaoke for drumming). The built-in songs cover a range of musical levels from beginner to intermediate.
