All lessons are given via Skype:
Paul Bostaph's Skype drum lessons are conducted just like in-person lessons. They are performative, live, private lessons. You will be able to see and hear him in his studio and receive immediate, direct feedback. Lessons are customized to your level and goals. Students of all levels are welcome and encouraged to progress at their own pace.
This is a great opportunity for drummers overseas and in all areas of the US to get private, one-on-one lessons.
How it works:
If you do not have a Skype account, download the Skype software, available free at skype.com
Make sure to have a high-speed internet connection during the time of our session.
Set up your practice space:
Add a webcam with a microphone to your computer (most computers/laptops have a built-in camera and mic).
Smartphones also work with this process; however, in my opinion, having a larger screen is much more favorable.
Your setup should include your drum kit as well as a practice pad. This can be placed on the snare drum of your kit, or on a stand, but should be in view of the camera. A side view of your kit usually works best. Most importantly, please angle your camera so that you are visible at your kit and please allow a clear view of your hands.
Booking lessons requires prepayment. During your checkout process, you will be prompted to fill out a brief form with your Skype ID. After your purchase has been made, an invoice will be sent by email with my Skype ID and confirmation of lesson date and time. Once you receive my ID, please add me to your Skype contacts. At the scheduled lesson time, Paul will initiate a Skype video call.
Note* Paul requires one person per lesson. Also, we do not offer refunds for missed/late lessons. Please to not purchase a lesson if you cannot attend the online meeting on the date and time that was determined during your consultation process. If you are more than 10 minutes late to the scheduled Skype meeting, your appointment will be forfeited and you will not receive a refund.
All lessons are conducted in English.
