2022 Recap

So proud to close the year with net growth in all aspects. Thank you for all your support!

Francis’ Drumming Blog is on the podium, at the 3rd position, of the best drum blogs and websites based on traffic, social media followers, domain authority & freshness. The blog reached more than 43,000 visitors and 130,000 clicks, with organic traffic from all over the world (special thanks go to visitors from the USA, UK, Australia, France, and Italy). Also, social media interactions have grown considerably, especially on Instagram. That motivates me to publish new stuff to help you to develop and improve your drumming.

Most of the drum sheet music, transcriptions, and exercises shared this year are available for free, and despite inflation, I kept the same prices for all the paid products in my online store and on Amazon. You can follow Francis’ Drumming Blog on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Scribd.


Here’s a selection of the best articles published this year. Whatever your level, here you can find something useful. Keep on drumming and make the most of 2023!
