Mostly for beginners, and to a lesser extent intermediate players but they certainly will also benefit; not so much for advanced players except to glean ideas from a fellow pro

I found this to be a great course, especially for the beginner, to hit the ground running as far as learning to play the drums. Instructor Dann Sherrill is a very patient and kind teacher interested in the student having fun while gaining the skills necessary to make drumming fun, with a solid foundation. In addition to teaching the basics, Mr. Sherrill shows how to use the newly acquired skills to play different genres of music, and what you need to know to play in a band setting.

and see if it's for you! A very well put together program worth serious consideration.
I actually just ordered this through Amazon (for $50 off) based on the lesson book that is available online here http://www.learnandmaster.com/drums/resources/
From perusing through the lesson book it looks like a fairly comprehensive course to get someone new like myself off and running.
Update: I have the course and have viewed the bonus CD and also lessons 1&2. I'm breezing through 1&2 because I've already been practicing these foundational beats. However, the instructor really presents the material well, is thorough, and has a great teaching style. This looks to be a great investment in my new musical journey. Highly recommended. Currently $95 through Amazon - 12 DVD's, 5 play-along CD's and a 112 page lesson book. Fantastic deal.
