If you've ever wanted to play the drums or simply wanted to get some extra practice in, virtual drumming games allow you to virtually play drums by using keys on the keyboard or by using the mouse. These games are available online, and they are generally free. You can either make up your own sound or mimic the sound patterns of your favourite drummer or piece of music.

This game is geared towards people who are interested in learning how to play the drums and learning how the different drum parts work. Users can choose from different drum settings, including rock, jazz, original, hip hop and fusion setups, and then they can further choose an artist drum set-up associated with that type of music. Another available set-up is the double bass drum pedal, which substitutes the double bass drum, and this type of music is most associated with metal music since this makes the drum sound a lot more powerful. Players will use keyboard keys that match the different drum elements to virtually play the drums. This program can be played on either a PC or Mac, and it is geared towards an older audience.
