Learn to play drums from the comfort of your own home!
Long before Covid-19 became such a big part of our lives, many drummers were using Skype or Zoom in order to have remote, real time online drum lessons. There were various reasons for this.... maybe they lived in an area without any nearby drum teachers, or perhaps they were unable to travel. Whatever the reason, the power of the internet has brought teachers and students together easier than ever before, and since the virus arrived on the scene, Skype drum lessons have really come into their own.
Many drummers have used online lessons in the form of you tube clips etc, and these are certainly useful for picking up ideas. However, as they are not "real time" one on one lessons, the student has no idea if they are playing correctly, and no-one to ask for direct guidance etc. This is where interactive Skype drum lessons really excel.
So how do Skype drum lessons work??
Its pretty much like having a skype or facetime chat with your friends. You simply set your laptop or tablet etc up near your drum kit or practice pad, and i do the same. I email the music sheets over to you prior to the lesson so you can print them off and have them in front of you, and away we go! We can interact as if we were in the same room... I can watch you and let you know if i see any issues that need correcting, I can demonstrate things to you, you can interject and ask questions etc. So unlike the you tube style drum videos, student and teacher are totally integrated in real time, able to interact, chat etc.
So what do I need??
1, Drumkit , Practice Pad, or Hand Drums 2, PC, Laptop, Tablet or Phone 3, Decent Internet Connection 4, Ideally a printer, although not essential
Thats all you need.... it doesnt matter if your drum kit is electronic or acoustic, and if you want to work on rudiments and snare drum technique you only need a practice pad and a pair of drum sticks. The important thing is that i can see you and you can see me. Its simple and effective and most students find it works very well for them.
