Online Drum Lessons
Private drum tuition via Zoom
Online drum tuition offers a excellent alternative to a traditional 1-to-1 lesson if you are unable to travel or live too far from Newcastle Upon Tyne! With online tuition you can learn from the comfort of your own home or practice space, anywhere in the world.
My main focus for online tuition is to replicate the same experience as closely as possible to a student being present in the studio. This is achieved by using a full audio and video set up for each lesson. Every online student will be hearing a direct audio feed of my drum kit, which is running through various Audix drum microphones. Alongside this, students will be seeing a high quality camera feed taken directly from an HD Camera. This will enable students to hear and see exactly what i'm teaching in the highest possible quality.
Similar to in person 1-to-1 tuition, each lesson is tailored to the individual. The main focus is achieving practical, productive and fun lessons, keeping in mind the important topics such as theory, reading and overall technique.
Online lessons are delivered through a video conferencing app called Zoom in 30 minute or 60 minute slots.
You can download Zoom for free below, which is compatible with Windows, MacOS, Linux & available on the App Store for both IOS & Android.
To get started with online tuition students are required to have access to a device with a camera and internet connection. Whatever your preference of device - it couldn't be easier.
Simply connect to the call and we can get started!
Students will also receive any relevant lesson notes/tracks/transcriptions. These will be sent directly to your email for practice, during and in between lessons.
*It is recommended that students choosing online tuition have access to a reliable internet connection with a minimum of 5mbps download speed*
Alex has a fully up-to-date DBS/CRB certificate available on request.
New students can receive a FREE 30 minute taster lesson - this is designed for beginners to achieve a basic understanding of the drum kit and to start playing some simple drum beats and to simply give private tuition a try!
Parents/guardians are more than welcome to be in attendance during tuition.
