What Do Online Drum Lessons Look Like?

Are you thinking about teaching or signing up for online drum lessons?  Curious to see what a live online lesson looks like?  I’ve put together this short video to give you a glimpse of an online drum lesson as well as my equipment setup.

Equipment Required for online drum lessons

  • A computer (ideally a laptop.)
  • A Webcam (Either Built-in or a USB webcam)
  • Free Video conferencing software (Zoom, Skype)
  • Good lighting (either find a well lit room or buy a light)
  • USB microphone (not required but improves the sound greatly)

Teaching Students Online

I teach drum lessons online to students all over the world, which would not be possible without online lessons.  I find that teaching “technique” on a practise pad works best online.  With a practise pad you don’t have to worry about loud drums overwhelming the computer microphone. As long as the camera is properly angled, I have no difficulty seeing exactly how my student is moving and correcting them.


I offer private drum lessons at my studio in Montreal, Canada or online by Skype or Zoom.
