I am now offering virtual drum lessons on a tips only basis. Trying to stay motivated? Taking up a hobby while you’re stuck indoors? Whatever your reason, let’s rock. We can cover whatever you’d like and you pay what the lesson is worth to you.

During times when we are not on a global lock down, students enjoy an in-person lesson setting at my home studio in a Philadelphia neighborhood called Fishtown. While I certainly look forward to having my students back, we have been surprised at the ease of online learning, as I never really did much of it before. It’s actually a lot easier than I thought it would be and much less “clunky” than you may think. There are obvious reasons people prefer to learn the drums in person, such as the one on one dialogue that addresses your needs and the rapport you come to develop with your teacher. But unlike instructional YouTube videos or pre-recorded drum lessons, we can maintain the one on one dialogue in a real-time virtual setting to focus specifically on the areas you are looking to improve.

Lessons take place on Skype or FaceTime, both super accessible and easy to use. I will work with you to get set up so we can make the best of our time together. I accept tips via all major payment platforms: Paypal, Venmo, Cash app, and really appreciate the work. These are weird times, but the virtual abilities of the world are literally boundless. Let’s play the drums!

  1. I like the idea of taking online drummer lessons so you can get direct one-on-one feedback. My son said he wants to play the drums before he gets out of high school. I’ll talk to him about taking some online lessons so he can still get the in=person experience without any risks.

      Awesome. Thanks Chris. I’m here when you’re ready to chat. I have some students coming back to the studio now but a lot are still doing virtual, which actually work out really well. I’m flexible and happy to accommodate. Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers!
