Take a Deep Dive into Brush Fundamentals 

Have you ever asked your drum teacher if they could teach you how to play with brushes only to receive the common response of - "I will show you two patterns then you have to figure the rest out yourself"?

Or, have you spent hours upon hours searching the web for a step-by-step method of brush techniques, groove patterns and accent applications only to realise that this kind of method is non-existent? 

Well that is about to change! My name is Anthony Stanislavski and I have devoted the past 5 years of my life to brushes. Throughout this time I have developed a comprehensive method that will equip you with the tools necessary to play brushes with confidence and freedom. 

Gain Freedom with Brushes takes you on a step-by-step course of lateral techniques, pattern choreography and improvisational cells. Once you have completed the course, you will have built a strong technical foundation that will allow you to play many grooves, fills and improvisational ideas.

"This course provided me clear patterns that are usable and easy to remember. Using the train tracks guide illustrated a strong link between all styles and didn't require me to learn an extreme amount of choreography."

Anthony Stanislavski

Hi, I'm Anthony - professional drummer, educator and author of Phrasing and Freedom with Brushes, and Beginner's Guide to Big Band Drumming.

I joined the Australian Army Band when I was 18 and started teaching soon after. Throughout my time as an educator I have been passionate about finding the best resources for my students to learn from. But I often struggled to find exactly what I wanted to teach, so I began creating my own materials. 

For the past 5 years, I have taken a deep-dive into the world of brushes and have developed a step-by-step method for teaching what is considered a dying art form. This has resulted in the publication of my book Phrasing and Freedom with Brushes, and now Gain Freedom with Brushes online course.

I am so incredibly honored to be associated with the following companies:

"Brush Basics was such a great course and the Zoom Meetings were an excellent addition, well worth the money spent. I will gladly do more of Anthony’s courses."

What makes this course so special?

Unlike many online drumming courses, you will be given access to ME, the instructor. If you choose the PRO option, you will be put into a private Facebook group where you will upload the homework exercises. I will then give you feedback on your progress. Throughout the course I will also be running live Zoom group sessions to answer any questions related to the week's content, and to make sure everyone is keeping on track with the course. 

Brush techniques can be quite challenging to grasp so along with the videos and notated PDFs, I believe it is important than I am with you every step of the way.
