What is Online Drum Learning?

How are the lessons going?

Online drumming lessons are remote drumming lessons using the free Skype video calling software. Zoom

The teacher is in a permanently equipped room for conducting lessons at the DDrums studio.

The student can be anywhere in the world. 

With the help of a web camera and a microphone, the teacher shows the material being analyzed on his drum kit, the student looks at the monitor of his computer (laptop, tablet, smartphone), and repeats the material already on his drums or practice pad. The teacher corrects and corrects shortcomings online. Everything happens in the same way as in a live drum lesson, and after 5 minutes you get the feeling of being completely present, just like when you practice in the studio.

The teacher also displays the notes of the topic being analyzed, which greatly facilitates the student's learning.

It is important that the teacher can record the lesson on video (optional) and send it to the student. This gives the learner the opportunity to repeat the material covered at home, and not to forget what needs to be worked out at this stage of training.

Also, the teacher sends the musical material in electronic form.

Learning to play drums via Skype is convenient and effective.

   PS If you live far from large cities where there are no drum schools, then remote drumming lessons via Skype or Zuma are your only chance to get first-hand knowledge, because what the teacher will explain to you in 1 hour of classes, you can do it yourself not learn, and in 10 years, and maybe more .......

  With a teacher, you will come to your cherished goal much faster and master the drum kit.

   PS  If you do not have any of the proposed equipment, it does not matter. Together with you, we will always find compromise ways to solve hardware problems in order to achieve high-quality comfortable training. Some students study with only a Smartphone and a headset, being at rehearsal places in their city. Distance classes do not tie you to a specific place, or a stationary drum school. You can practice even while traveling the world.

Or will the connection break? 

 If the program crashes  skype,  or disconnection on our part, then don’t worry, we will add all the missed time to this (or the next lesson) after the connection is restored, and in total it will be equal to the previously planned lesson duration. You won't lose a second of your time.

Frequently Asked Questions  Questions about online learning?


Oleksandra Pristenska  (Bila Tserkva, Ukraine)

And what do I need to ensure that the quality of video and sound I have was good?


Dmitry Orudzhov  replied to Oleksandra


The first is the quality of the internet.  Quality  depends on many factors.  From the load of the line, from the version of Skype, from the power of your device.  For better visibility, of course, you need a good  webcam. You need to install the latest version of Skype.  I conduct lessons several times a week with different  cities and countries. USA,  Estonia, England, Spain, Israel, Germany, Luxembourg, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, etc.   The connection is stable, with rare exceptions, there is a temporary slight deterioration in the picture, but it does not affect the quality of training.

How much does the lesson cost and how does it work?


Dmitry Orudzhov  replied to Peter

The price of the lesson depends on the country of residence. For example, for Russia, Belarus, the CIS countries, as well as Ukraine, prices and calculations are preferable in rubles. If you are in the USA, then the calculations will be in dollars. European countries in Euro, England in pounds. Currencies of other countries are converted into dollars, euros, or rubles by agreement. The exact prices can be found in the PRICES section or from the teacher.  Communication with the student is made via Skype. I have everything stationary, 4 webcams are located in different angles. From the top, from the right, and from the left, as well as separately on the legs. Excellent review. Everything is clearly visible when I explain and show the student, the video monitor is in front of my eyes. The drums are sounded by professional microphones, the sound is mixed and goes to the mixer, and then to Skype. I also recommend that the student put the monitor on the side of the hi-hat, and the webcam on the top, or also on the side of the hi-hat.  If live drums, then with sound, you don’t need to bother and sound anything, if electronic, then of course you need the sound to go to any speakers that are. Payment for classes on a Sberbank card, Yandex money, or Paypal. If there is a Sberbank online, then it’s even easier, using the phone number of a bank client with my number +79608354338. The approach to the student is individual. There is a concept of classes with gradual complication developed over the years, baggage of rhythms, grooves, playing in various styles, coordination, soloing, and so on. The most important thing is the result, and the result is my students who play, and some of them work professionally in musical groups.
