Online Drum Lessons

Online Drum Lessons

Do you want to learn to play drums or brush up your existing skills and bring your drumming to the next level?

I am not only an experienced music performer but also a passionate music educator teaching drumming, improvisation and music making for more than 20 years.
Currently I am a teacher at Senzoku Gakuen College of Music in Kawasaki/Japan, and I am giving private drum classes to anybody interested in discovering the art of drumming with me!

You don’t live close by, maybe you are even in a different country or you just want to enjoy the benefits and convenience of studying from home (or wherever you choose to be)?
Then this might be the right place for you… Welcome to my online drum lesson studio!!

About My Lessons

I love working with a wide range of students from children to seniors, and from complete beginners to advanced and experienced players.
Everybody is unique and different, so I use creative and individualized approaches for each student, depending on musical interests, learning style and needs. 
My goal is to provide everyone with a thorough understanding of drumming and music while make playing and being creative a fun and enriching experience!!

If you are an aspriring professional or college student, I can help you to prepare for auditions and exams plus get you ready for the life as a professional musician.

Lessons are available in English, German or Japanese.

Online Drum Lessons

Most of my private lessons are held online using a video conferencing platform especially made for online music education called “Forte“.
Forte radically improves online music education with video conferencing features optimized for music lessons and audio quality far superior to existing platforms.
It is very easy to use and comes with useful features to make our online lessons a smooth and succesful experience.

Some parents wonder if kids classes are possible online and from my expereince they work great. I even found that the young learners can focus better online than being together in the studio.

Online drum lessons are very effective, time saving and convenient, and if you haven’t tried it yet I would highly recommend doing so! This might be the right fit for you!

Equipment Needed

All you need is a computer or iPad, the Chrome browser and a pair of drum sticks and you are ready to go. Ideally you also have a practice pad or (electronic-) drumset available, but to get started it is not a must.

Meet & Greet

Nothing is more important than the first impression and to meet each other in person. If you are interested in taking lessons with me, I would like to invite you for a free online “meet & greet” session. There we can talk about things, get to know each other and have your questions answered. Afterwards you can decide if you want to start taking lessons with me or not.

Just send me a message with some information about you and request a session. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
