Lesson Info:

Chicago's # 1 Drum Lessons has taught thousands of great drummers of today since 1995. Lessons are 30 min. one on one private per week (pay monthly), or 60min. private one on one (pay weekly). We are the only music instruction in the world to offer a professional recorded take home video program for students to use in aiding their practice sessions making each and everyone the most effective and progressive tool in learning the drums fast. Each and every lesson is custom tailored to each student’s individual needs and level. If you are a beginner – advanced we can help.

Each lesson is structured from beginning to end in a pre planned pre recorded video library. Everyone learns things at different rates, with our video program you will learn not only faster, but also more efficiently as you can check your work or get our help immediately in the comfort of your own home. First we warm up with previous lesson homework or if your brand new to the drums we will discuss what we will be working on, second is a complete walk thru together on new assignment or assignments on the full drum set, third we will take a few minutes to transfer and watch what we just did together as every lesson has been previously recorded and archived on professional video to take home, fourth if you are a current student of 3 months or more we will get the notation to a new song to learn and play along with, or new music to drum to so we can work on your improvisational skills.

It is a proven fact that the more times an individual watches, listens, and is demonstrated something they will pick it up at a much faster pace thus resulting in a great drummer. The video allows the students to check and cross-reference what they learned for that week to help aid them in their practice sessions through out the week. Students will learn the right way each and every time as well as having a complete organized video library of all their completed lesson's to date. Money and time is saved, no back tracking or wrong way of learning, always moving fourth, the more lessons a students has been taught, the bigger their video library of tracked organized recorded previous lessons are saved for continuous viewing pleasure, and not to mention learning each week's lesson efficiently and accurately as well as getting the most for your money.

There is no wrong way of learning the drums from Chicago’s #1 Drum Lessons, students learn the right way each and every time and the students can get their questions answered right there in the privacy of their own home instead of waiting to the next lesson to find out if they did it right. I don’t know of any other music instructor for ANY other instrument that has ever made the news for their teaching style and method have you? We must be doing something right.
