I've launched this page together with 3 brand new, premium courses over on questforgroove.com.

- Easy, Awesome & Real
In this course I'll teach you the famous drum parts of 10 well-known popular songs. If you're getting started in finger drumming and you like to play along to 'real' music. This is the course for you. It's exacly what the title says. Easy, awesome and real!

- Time & Time again
Everything you ever wanted to know about timing and groove. This course takes on the herculean task of explaining what groove is and how anyone can obtain a great sense of time by applying a multitude of ways to perceive time to everything they play.

Advanced Techniques
It's the biggest course I've ever made and it's filled with all kinds of very useful finger drumming techniques. We'll cover things like how to play fast, how to move fluently across the pads, I'll address double strokes, paradiddles and the moeller technique in case that rings a bell and on top of that I include multiple practice schedules and workouts that you can do in order to improve your technique in the fastest and most efficient way and become the most awesome finger drummer ever.



And after those courses are released, lots and lots more awesome stuff wil follow!

==== About =====

This is the official Patreon page for The Quest for Groove, an initiative by me (Robert Mathijs from Amsterdam, Netherlands) to help (aspiring) musicians from all over the world on their never ending quests for groove. The main thing I do here is teach people finger drumming, an exciting, new and very practical way of drumming on an mpc-style pad controller, like this one for example:


Contrary to what most people believe, finger drumming can be used to create all genres of music in many different styles and not just hiphop, electronic or other loop and/or sample based music, even though that is what they're used for by most people right now. On top of that, also within the aforementioned genres, most people you see online playing mpc's only scratch the surface of what's actually possible in terms of technique, dynamics and overall musical possibilities.

The reason for that is pretty obvious. Because this instrument has only existed for a couple of decades, and software-based instruments have only in recent years evolved into the extremely realistic ones of today, the amount of highly skilled finger drummers in the world is only a fraction of the amount of highly skilled 'real' drummers, or guitarist, or, piano players for that matter.

The Quest for Groove is gonna change that by doing the following:
- Demonstrating to the world what's possible by putting out videos of me playing all kinds of musical styles over on the QFG YouTube and other social media channels.
- Making it possible for everyone with an internet connection to learn how to play by creating and sharing lots of free lessons and courses.
- Spreading the message by creating an international community of finger drumming enthusiasts

As a patron you'll receive great rewards like:
- Access to exclusive, in-depth, premium courses on questforgroove.com that teach you everything you need to know in order to become a master finger drummer.
- Access to regular, exclusive live Q&A sessions in which we can talk and hang with other likeminded souls and where I will try to answer any questions you might have.

Your contribution will be used for stuff like:
- Making sure the website and the video courses on it run fast and smoothly all over the world
- Investing in reaching a broad, worldwide audience by translating and subtitling videos and other educational material
- Keeping the stream of new, engaging high quality content going. The more supporters I have, the more time I can dedicate to this project and, at some point, the more people I can pay to help me create more and better content.
- In short: Conquering the world isn't easy and I can use all the support I can get!
