Hi there, fellow drummer! Ready to make music your main thing, but not quite sure where to start?

Get Your Backstage Pass!

At Collision Drumsticks, we champion the grassroots artists, the underdogs, and the bedroom jammers through radical transparency, quality products, and genuine community in every garage, practice space, pub, or venue.

Drummers like you! Speaking of…

Have you ever felt like the music industry is too cutthroat and isolating? 

If so, we’ve felt the same way. We’re not interested in every drummer for themselves. We know there’s enough for everyone, and when we support each other, we all rock and we all win.

Here’s the thing, most of us wish making music our main thing meant just playing music, but by now you might have noticed that there’s more to it.

The self-promotion, social media, networking, and putting yourself out there!

This is where we’ve noticed drummers can use support to uplift their journey and amplify their sound. And we are here for it because you and your sound deserve their place on stage.

HAVE YOU EVER FELT…

  • Like your play isn’t as good as other drummers online so it’s not good enough to put out into the world?
  • Like the online space is too overwhelming?
  • Like you find yourself sharing other’s music, but not your own?
  • Like you would benefit from more support from people who get it?
  • Like if you knew where to start you’d be hyped to start putting yourself out there?

What if you could? And what if you didn’t have to do it alone?

Imagine feeling confident in your skills and music, being pumped to share with your friends, family, and the world, and starting to make money from your music.

By embracing your style of play, and using our backstage pass giving you the tools to establish your unique presence online and get real results from it, you can build your music career and have fun doing it.

For some drummers backstage that’s meant…

  • Increasing their income from their music and partnerships.
  • Being surrounded by a community of drummers who value collaboration over competition.
  • Being truly seen, heard, and supported in the music industry by a brand that appreciates them and their sound.
  • Honing their craft and becoming a better drummer.
  • Knowing what to post online and how to attract an engaged audience that champions them and their music.

You’re enough just as you are, we just have something that can help you do more of you and progress your music career alongside people as driven as you.

You can experience this and more in…

Our membership community supports the modern drummer to learn, collaborate, and grow their music into their main thing!

There isn’t a “drummer’s blueprint” or “go-to-guide” on how to be the best drummer, the one that everyone looks for, or expects you to be. 

In COLLISION BACKSTAGE, we show you how to ditch the path everyone says you have to take because it’s the “only” way they know. 

This is about YOUR journey, your sound, and your goals, and we want to support you along the way.

We know what it’s like to be the only drummer in the room. Most of the time we’re the ones that are practically backstage, off-camera, and out of sight. It could be quite lonely as a drummer trying to figure it out all on your own.

We built this platform to showcase and celebrate the drummer. 

COLLISION BACKSTAGE is the place where you can thrive and develop your understanding as a drummer. 

You’ll get access to knowledge and support from a wide variety of industry experts. You also get access to the private BACKSTAGE global community to connect and collaborate with like-minded, passionate, motivated drummers. 

Spoiler alert: This is not a framework that will make you an overnight success as an Instagram drummer or influencer with 1 million followers.

But, the strategies we share in the COLLISION BACKSTAGE framework  can help you:

  • Grow a community online that supports your music and work as an artist and awesome human.

  • Build credibility as a drummer in your space and genre so you can book more projects.

  • Start monetizing your skills, gifts, and hard work so you can make music your main thing.

Our mission is to support drummers worldwide through radical transparency, quality products, and genuine community. We take this, and your success, seriously!

This is what you can expect from us and COLLISION BACKSTAGE…

  1. Action Steps and accountability: A community to keep you going strong and help you move through any blocks or resistance that may arise.

  2. Curated content and events to learn from experienced musicians and industry insiders.

  3. Us to be your coach, cheerleader, and support system. You’ll receive professional advice around your goals and your life — from making money to make it work without burning out.

  4. A focus on how to scale your online presence so that you can focus on doing what you love – playing drums! You’ll learn how to think strategically and make decisions so you can do it your way, and our framework can help you along the way.

  5. Personal and professional growth due to consistent reflection looking backward and goal setting looking forward from LIVE coaching sessions.

  6. Life-long relationships through our global COLLISION network.

// A MESSAGE FROM OUR HEAD DRUMMER AND COLLISION DRUMSTICKS CEO!

When I first started my drumming journey, I wanted to join a community where I was mentored and supported in growing my online social media presence, positively influence my fans and audience, and build my personal brand as a musician. After searching for online resources, programs and coaches, I realised that there were little to no options for us as drummers to get support in growing our online presence.

Trying to navigate the online space as a drummer can be lonely. That is why I decided to launch COLLISION BACKSTAGE, a community-based membership program built for drummers looking to level up and grow their social media presence, create engaging content and take their music to the next level online. 

This isn’t another online drum lesson – you already know how to play. COLLISION BACKSTAGE focuses on the business of your music and you as the drummer.

Drummers – this is our time. Join us BACKSTAGE.

BECOME A MEMBER

// COLLISION BACKSTAGE could be for you if:

  • You want to grow your social media following in a genuine and engaging way.
  • You’re looking to join a global community of driven drummers for more support and less petty competition.
  • You’re serious about taking your music to the next level, whatever that means to you!
  • You want to go from part-time to a full-time artist, but feel that you lack the support.
  • You’re looking to identify unique opportunities to create multiple artist revenue streams.
  • You’re looking for resources to support you and compliment your learning.
  • Most importantly, you want to impact your sound.

// COLLISION BACKSTAGE might not be for you if:

  • You’re not a team player and don’t feel like you can be supportive of other drummers.
  • You don’t want to progress your music online.
  • You’re not really interested in making music your main thing.
  • You don’t support drummers of all races, gender, faith, and orientation and aren’t open to recognizing systems of oppression and helping to stop that harm.
  • You’re not willing to put in the work and expect a “get rich quick” result.

// What artists are saying

We’re supporting drummers making music their main thing every day. But don’t just take it from us, hear what our awesome drummer community is saying!
