Well its been a good few months since we had to stop offering face to face drum lessons at our studio in Eastbourne. Since then we have been offering online lessons via Zoom, Skype etc and building our YouTube channel. We have even started putting together an online course called drumming for Beginners. But we have always been hoping for the day that we can open our doors once again and welcome students back to us here at Ravebugs.
Of course we have had to make some minor changes and put certain measures in place to enable us to open up and keep everyone safe as well as comply with current government advice but we feel the changes wont effect the enjoyment of the students or our ability to offer first class drum lessons to students of all ages.
Look forward to seeing you all soon.
Is it possible to learn to play drums online? I think it is. However there are a few conditions to that statement...
There are plenty of people online nowadays offering to teach you to do something on YouTube. For the most part this is fine but to get the most out of any musical instrument you need a teacher. Someone who can show you the correct way or technique needed to advance in the best way possible. So when looking at online teaching ask yourself “who is it that is providing the course”? It may be a reputable school with years of music teaching experience, in which case that is great. There are, however, other courses being offered by people that just want to sell the “course” rather than genuinely help you on your journey.
Here at Ravebugs we are starting to develop an online course based upon our years of face to face lessons. We are hoping that it will be informative and entertaining but most of all we want it to be genuinely helpful.
Until next time.
Keep up the practice.
