Many people turned to online drum lessons during Covid-19. Brand new drummers and experienced drummers alike started to find out for themselves that online drum lessons are fun and effective, despite the availability of these services being around for years before the pandemic turned everyday life upside down.
At Drum Ambition, we champion the role that local teachers play within the drumming community. However, even before the pandemic, not everyone had the opportunity to work one-to-one with a drum teacher. Many don't have one in their geographical area, are too busy to visit a teacher, may not be able to justify the hourly rate due to other commitments (typically around $60 plus, per hour), or are just undecided on whether they want to visit a teacher. In these respects, online drum lessons are a great alternative. The most significant advantages are learning from home on your schedule, progressing at your own pace, and all at a fraction of the cost of visiting a teacher.

Do you need a drum set to learn to play the drums?
Drum Ambition was created by Simon DasGupta - a veteran drum teacher with over 20 years of teaching experience. Over the years, Simon worked with multiple drum teachers and hundreds of students, and he always enjoyed the personal interaction and engagement of giving one-to-one lessons. Being able to sit with a student, build a relationship, understand their goals, and tailor content specifically to their individual needs is something that he initially believed could not be replicated by watching an online video. This was the biggest challenge to overcome during the genesis of Drum Ambition. How do we give our online students the experience of a one-to-one lesson?
Firstly, we do this by having one teacher, which we believe is the key to providing a personalized online experience. As well as presenting all 100 videos and personally creating the curriculum, Simon also supports subscribers through email and live chat.
Our videos are usually around 10 minutes and feature on-screen music notation and accompanying PDF sheet music. Our curriculum also features hundreds of additional audio files, a comprehensive glossary, and a knowledge center full of articles and tips. We believe that we offer the closest possible experience to working one-to-one with a drum teacher. We may not be in the same room, but we care deeply about your drum education and are committed to building a relationship and delivering the best possible learning experience. We are so confident that you will enjoy Drum Ambition that we offer a 100% money-back Happiness Guarantee. Also, we invite you to watch our free videos to see if we are a good fit for you before making a purchase. Drum Ambition has helped drummers in over 50 countries, and we believe we can help you too!
