He is a drum teacher, yes, but since 2018 (and for over a decade before it was a book and online course) he has coached hundreds of musicians of many instruments in the fundamentals of rhythm and timing. Great Rhythm Course Alumni are performers on a variety of instruments from acoustic guitar to zither.  They are ensemble section leaders, All-State and  All-Region musicians, Honor’s Recitalists, professional educators, and award-winning recording artists.  You can join this elite group, honing your skills for the benefit of your fellow musician. 

As you level-up your rhythm and timing, you will bring up those around you.

The “Great Rhythm” course teaches and reinforces not only great rhythm and timing; it develops the practice habit for a lifetime of joy-filled music-making.



“It’s not easy to find a teacher who is patient with beginners, but Joe Seltzer is definitely one of them! My children have learned and enjoyed themselves so much, and love sharing their new skills with me.”
