The BeatBuddy MINI is a jamming tool that provides music students a partner in crime to learn and experiment with hundreds of styles. It’s like a real drummer, but patient.

Every successful musician knows timing is key to being able to play with others and to convey the emotion of a genre. However, the rhythm of each style of music is more nuanced than any metronome could ever express, which is why the MINI is a dynamic educational tool, helping students not only intellectually understand the music but feel it, too.

Once students’ rhythm is innate, the MINI becomes their improvisational partner, as they take the leap into making music their own.

With a visual metronome, authentic sound, and full control of the beat, emerging rock stars will be empowered to take risks and explore genres without fear, opening their mind to musical worlds that before were only possible with a patient human drummer.

  • “My students have improved more after a few hours with the BeatBuddy MINI than they have in weeks of practice.”

Become Better

Improve your timing, broaden your musical horizons, and take your improvisation to new heights with your go-to drummer.
Whether you want to play Carnegie Hall or jam at home after school, the Mini is the tool to master the nuance of rhythm.

The sound of real drums makes your music awesome Annoying “bleep bloop” sound ruins your music
Teaches the nuance of rhythm in any style Counts to four
Visually animates the beat in the measure Not good for visual learners
Inspires improvisation through hands-free control of the beat Inspiration not included
Encourages experimentation with new genres This is getting embarrasing
  • “The BeatBuddy MINI is so much fun because you can tell your drummer what to do!”

The moving line shows which beat is currently playing in the measure. (A 3/4 beat will have three lines, a 4/4 beat will have four lines, etc.) This gives you the context to know exactly when that fill is going to end.
