We use a three camera system during our remote online lesson which offers views of the front, side and pedals on the teachers drum set...see images below.
In any given lesson, emphasis is usually placed on: technique, rudiments, theory, ear training, time keeping, performing skills, adapting to different styles, and feels. Styles taught include: Rock, Metal, Double Bass, Progressive, Blues, Pop, Jazz, Country, Funk, Reggae and Latin. To learn more about the teacher and his style of teaching, click here for his bio.
Remote Lesson Requirements:
You will need a computer or tablet with a webcam, built-in microphone, speakers (preferably headphones) and a wired Internet or WIFI connection.
An acoustic or electric drum set in a place where you can take an uninterrupted private lesson.
FYI: Electric drums sets will always sound a little better over the Internet than acoustic kits.
NOTE: In the event that the audio sounds a little choppy or distorted during the remote online lesson, an excellent backup is using your cell phone to handle the audio along with the separate video connection from your computer or tablet.
