I am currently offering three program areas of study over Skype:
1: All-in-One, Learn to Play the Drumset. This is my method based on 45 years of professional teaching both with private students and in university programs. The focus is on drumset from beginner to advanced. I use other volumes from the standard drumset literature, however, my book “Learn To Play The Drumset” is the heart of this program. Graduates of the course receive a Certificate of Achievement signed by me.
2: Polyrhythms the Musicians Guide. For more advanced players and professionals (on any instruments) and, exclusively for drummers, it’s “Polyrhythms For The Drumset”. This is the book I worked through with master drummer Steve Smith as well as with many of other professional drummers. It’s difficult to go through but that’s the challenge – and what it does for your own playing in all genres of music is well worth the effort.
3: Private Student. This program is all of the above. You are a one-to-one, private student as I work with you and only you at each lesson. These lessons are weekly or biweekly. I will be your main drum teacher while you study with me. This program goes as long as we both feel the progress is worth the effort.*
All private lessons on Skype are $80.00 per lesson, weekly or biweekly. Lessons are 1 hour in duration.
For one lesson only, cost is $150.00 for an hour consultation, lesson and evaluation (this may go over 1 hour at no additional charge).
All lessons are paid in advance to my email address via PayPal.
Contact me first for and let me know your Skype address, phone number and tell me something about where you are with your playing so far and we can then get started.
