Learn To Play The Drums Virtually

Boulder Drum Studio helps to connect with drummers from anywhere in the world via the Internet using state-of-the-art video conferencing. Setting up for drum lessons is simple no matter how proficient you are on the computer. If you have a desktop computer, laptop or tablet with a webcam on it, you’re good to go! Most devices today deliver a crystal clear video experience. Try our free half hour trial lesson!

We use a four camera system during our virtual online lesson which offers views of the front, side, overhead and pedals on the teachers drum set...see images below.

In any given lesson, emphasis is usually placed on: technique, rudiments, theory, ear training, time keeping, performing skills, adapting to different styles, and feels. Styles taught include: Rock, Metal, Double Bass, Progressive, Blues, Pop, Jazz, Country, Funk, Reggae and Latin.

Virtual Lesson Requirements:

  • You will need a computer or tablet with a webcam, built-in microphone, speakers (preferably headphones) and a wired Internet or WIFI connection.
  • And of course you will also need a drum set in a place where you can take an uninterrupted private lesson.
  • FYI: Electric drums sets will always sound a little better over the Internet than acoustic kits.
  • NOTE: In the event that the audio sounds a little choppy or distorted during the virtual lesson, an excellent backup is using your cell phone to handle the audio along with the separate video connection from your computer or tablet.

    I wanted to write you to tell you what an incredible job you're doing with Alex. He is having such a great time and truly enjoys his lessons with you. Even though I don't know a whole lot about music, I can tell his playing's improved! You've been able to connect with him in a way we haven't seen before and it's truly affecting Alex in a positive way. We can't thank you enough. Keep up the great work! Thanks.

    I'm about 80% finished with our bands first CD and I want to send you a copy. Also special thanks for helping me realize one of my greatest dreams. Thank you! Our band is doing great and people are loving our music. We have been able to book 8 gigs in the next 6-weeks without so much as a phone call. We are enjoying a great reputation. Larry, I know you are a pretty humble guy but, I absolutely would not be in this wonderful position without you. Thanks again.

    Larry, I had a great time leaning from you. As I mentioned before, I think you are an excellent teacher. I leaned so much in the past 6 weeks and am very pleased with the results. James also thinks I've made a great improvement, and that's a real good thing since he has to listen to my playing all the time! With my coordination skills, drumming is often very challenging. But, it's been so much fun, and I think I owe that to your good teaching technique of combining enough fun and challenge in each practice. Thanks again.
