Skype Drum Lessons Online
Live online drum lessons
All ages • Beginners to advanced • All styles
Adriaan uses at least two cameras for his live Skype online drum lessons. These are carefully positioned so all aspects of drumming technique are easily seen on screen by the student.
During the online drum lessons, the drums’ sound from Adriaan’s kit is fed through the computer. The sound is not captured from the room, therefore the drum sound can always to be heard perfectly by the student at home.
Adriaan had a broad vision of music so he can teach all styles. He tailors lessons to the needs of individual students. Adriaan actively discovers students’ own talents, which he helps to develop.
Adriaan is deeply interested in research and the development of music education. He is continually studying all aspects of teaching music as a result.
