FAQ Freedrum Studio App

What is Freedrum Studio?

Freedrum Studio is a digital learning platform that offers a wide range of tools and resources for drummers. It's compatible with various devices such as iOS, macOS, Android, and Windows and allows you to connect to electronic drum kits, Freedrum Electronic Drumsticks, and The Original Freedrum.

With a subscription, you'll have access to our entire library of songs. We're constantly adding new courses, curated by our professional drummers, to keep you inspired.

Our Note Highway feature is designed to help you play along with the songs in a fun way. The progress bar lets you know if you're playing too early or too late, so you can get the perfect hit.

We've also included a Sheet Music feature for those who prefer a more traditional approach to learning. This feature allows you to play the songs using traditional music notation as you learn.

If you're on-the-go, our Finger Drumming feature allows you to practice the courses even while using public transport.

And with our Activity Tracking feature, you can easily track your progress as a drummer.
