In the biggest change to JPDL since launching the website, the lifetime membership now includes a 12-week personalized mentorship program. I’ll personally set you up with a practice routine that will evolve over 12 weeks, and we’ll schedule weekly 1-on-1 catch-up video calls to go through your progress.
Best of all, you can pay in three monthly installments!
How it works
On Day 1 – we’ll schedule a 30-minute video call to discuss your current abilities as a drummer and where you want to be. I’ll then put together a practice routine for you to work on through the first and second weeks. The routine will include exercise videos that you can slow down/speed up to practice at the perfect speed.
This routine is something all students need to commit to when signing up and something we’ll discuss in detail on the first call. We’re talking about a minimum commitment of 30 minutes of dedicated practice time, four to five days a week.
Every week, you’ll have the option to schedule a 20-minute video call with me, where we‘ll go over your progress and discuss anything you’re struggling with, and adjust the practice routine to target the areas where you can improve.
By the end of month 1, you’ll be settled into a comfortable, structured practice routine and will begin to see and hear improvements in your playing.
Through months two and three, you’ll see and hear noticeable improvements in your drumming and will have learned new techniques, exercises, grooves and fills that you’ll begin to use comfortably.
By the end of month three, you’ll be on a completely new trajectory as a drummer. You’ll have new creative ideas, new capabilities, and new energy for playing and writing.
Can I continue beyond month three? – You sure can – we’ll discuss these options as you approach the end of the 12-weeks.
Can I just sign up for weekly lessons outside of this? – No – to see and hear real improvements, you need to make an upfront commitment. In other words, you have to do the work. A couple of lessons here and there won’t make the kind of difference we’re aiming to achieve here. This is a structured approach to get you on the right path to becoming a noticeably more confident and creative drummer.
What equipment do I need? – Ideally, you’ll have access to an acoustic or electric drum kit. For the video calls, you just need a smartphone or laptop / PC with a webcam.
I don’t think I need a video call every week – can I still do this? – Absolutely! You’ll be able to message me within the JPDL Discord server with any questions week to week. Video calls are an optional perk.
Ok! Let’s go!
