    Default Who wants free drum lessons?

    Ok drum chatters,

    I am taking your advise and I am going to start teaching, catering to your specific needs and skill level, and I am going to teach for FREE.
    The way I plan to start is by using either my email at ddrumbum@charter.net or yahoo messanger @ ddrumbum for discussion and questions and then by video demonstrations for the response back to you.
    You simply ask me what you are wanting to learn or struggling with, I will make a video, demonstrating how to do it in detail, and either up it on my myspace page OR email it directly to you or both.
    Again I am new to the teaching thing, so if you have suggestions on better ways to get the information to you, please let me know, but I know I prefer video demonstrations, it is pretty much like hands on, so give me your input please.

    This will be completely free, and I am really looking forward to doing it.

    So let the teaching begin.

    seriously, are you looking for real life students? make sure to get flyers out to your local music stores. if you are a good teacher then this a great way to earn some extra cash aswell as help others. i teach 4 kids at dif. levels and when my wife graduates next year i will start teaching full time. if you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Default Lessons for sure

    Finally talked myself into dropping by the music place last night on my way home. They teach guitar and other instruments and have one drum kit set up in a small room just large enough for the drum kit, one person on the "throne" and one chair for the instructor. I've never even sat down in front of a set of drums but I'm looking forward to getting started. Where would you think the instructor would start. "This is a drum kit," I suppose. Anybody out there who can relate their first drum lessons stories? The kit they have there is a regular 5-piece with hi-hat, crash & ride cymbals (I think that's what they're called). How much would you say the lessons would cost at our day's prices? You have to buy a month's worth of lessons. I'll have to consult here with you guys if I don't understand something. I've actually learned a lot about drumming just by looking on the net. Looks like to me that everybody would benefit from taking at least a few lessons.

    Mine will be <$20 per half hour, so that sounds about right. Lessons from a professional, on a full kit, one-on-one, couldn't be much cheaper. When I studied flute, I had a professional tutor and practiced a lot, but in actuality, since I didn't start 'til I was well into my adult life, I just could not form my mouth muscles into what is the correct opening that's required to be able to make the correct notes. I loved to play the flute, but was never pleased with myself. I can see myself getting much better on drums. We'll see what happens. Keepin' the beat,

    Thats about what I pay. Do they have any deals on 1 hour lessons?
    With my teacher your pay fifteen per half hour or twenty five per hour. I just don't find that half of an hour is enough... Maybe its just me though?

    My boys are taking drum, guitar, and piano lessons. In Nor Cal rates are running from $60 p/mo ($15 p/half hour) to $100 per hour. We've had some teachers that weren't worth $1 p/hr, while the $100 p/hr guy is absolutely golden! Shop around. Like everything else, you get what you pay for.
