What sets Melodics’ Acoustic Drums program apart is its unique approach to learning. Traditional online learning methods do not provide sufficient user feedback on playing technique or progress. Melodics’ program utilizes an interactive system in which drummers get real-time feedback — so they know they are hitting the right beat, and can track their progress over time, enhancing understanding and engagement. This progressive method makes it easier for beginners to grasp the fundamentals of drumming and develop a solid foundation of skills, with a personalised online experience that is much closer to a drum tutor, for a fraction of the cost.

One of the key features of Acoustic Drums is its innovative new technology that was created to provide instantaneous feedback, leveraging machine learning and advanced sound detection technology. Users can calibrate their acoustic drum kits to the app which then analyses the user’s performance in real-time, providing instant feedback to help them improve their timing, technique, and overall drumming skills. This interactive feedback system makes practicing enjoyable and effective, helping users progress at their own pace; built in motivational mechanics make practice fun and engaging which keeps them drumming for longer.
