Put my ego in check and made me realize how bad of a drummer I am, but I stuck with it and have really gotten a lot out of it.


Great insight into one of today's shining stars

Maybe not the mind blowing self indulgent tech-fest one might expect from a player of Mike's skill, but truly enlightening and extremely entertaining. Just in case you didn't know, my is from Boston, and the accent is in Ll its glory in the amazing dvd set.

The Grid

Choose a Format:
Loading Options…

A complete system for expanding your skills as a creative player and improviser, focusing in on your own musical identity.

This system is presented through performed examples and graphics, and is usable by drummers of all styles. Dividing your drumming into time signature, subdivision, dynamics, instrument sounds, limbs, style, and phrases, Mike demonstrates dozens of grooves, fills, and patterns from easy to extremely advanced. He systematically shows you how to use the Grid to expand your understanding of music and drumming, and improve your physical abilities.

Filmed in two different studios on two different drum kits, including Mike’s signature Dream Theater setup during the recording of the band’s latest album, this DVD presents a brand-new and unique philosophy by one of the leading drummers of our time.

Using Mike’s system, you can grow exponentially as a drummer by increasing your speed, developing better independence, learning to use ostinatos and expanding your knowledge of styles. You will also learn to use polyrhythms, play in odd time signatures, develop a deeper understanding of the basics of rhythm and become a more creative player.

The Grid gives you a complete, intelligent, and fascinating system to achieve all this and more. “Mike’s new system is simply amazing!” says Hudson Music President, Rob Wallis. “There is so much you can learn and it just makes so much sense. That is why we had to do a 2 DVD set.” This deluxe package includes an extensive PDF eBook with over 50 transcribed examples, as well as extensive text, definitions and diagrams of the Grid. There are also two bonus drum solos, including one filmed on tour with Dream Theater.

Mike Mangini is an accomplished educator, clinician and Grammy nominated drummer. He has taught at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, has drumming awards too numerous to list and is officially the World’s Fastest Drummer in five categories. Mike has recorded and/or toured with Extreme, Godsmack and Steve Vai and is now an official member of Dream Theater.
