Covid-19 has changed the way that many of us approach our leisure time. During the pandemic, which at the time of writing is still ongoing, many people turned to online lessons to learn a new skill, realize a lifelong ambition, or pass the time in a fun and entertaining way.
The drums are indeed a fantastic instrument to learn, and there is no doubt that aside from the musical skills learned, there is also an element of stress relief to beat making. Online platforms for learning a new skill have been around for years, but the recent pandemic has made consumers more aware of what is at their fingertips. There are still three distinct options for those interested in learning the drums during this time and in the coming months.
Firstly, it should be noted that not owning a drum set should not stop you from learning to play, as this article discusses.

Learning online - Live lessons with a teacher
Many drum teachers are turning to Zoom and other platforms to teach their students face to face. Providing the teacher has a set-up that can effectively demonstrate all of the techniques you will need to learn, this can be a great way of learning, building a relationship with a teacher, and getting real-time personalized critique. It's essential to understand the possible limitations of these sessions, but at Drum Ambition, we always champion the great benefits of working one-to-one with a qualified drum teacher.
Visit a teacher.
Depending on your local Covid situation, visiting a teacher at a studio or having a Teaching Professional visit your home will almost certainly take on a new dynamic. With social distancing recommendations and other precautions still in place in many regions, these sessions may become more challenging, at least for a while. It's worth reaching out to local teachers to find out what they are doing to make their studios and facilities compliant with the guidelines in your specific area. Now more than ever, supporting local drum teachers is very important.
