12-week Mentorship & Lifetime membership

How does the mentorship work

On Day 1 – we’ll schedule a video call to discuss your current abilities as a drummer and where you want to be. After that call, I’ll put together a practice routine for you that is designed to get the fundamentals in place to achieve the techniques you’re going to improve. The routine will include exercise videos that you can slow down/speed up to practice at the perfect speed.

Once per week – We’ll check in on a video call to discuss your progress and address any issues you’re having. Rest assured, you’ll be able to contact me via direct message throughout the 12-weeks – if you need a quick response to a question or want some feedback on a new technique you’re learning.

How much time do I need for this?

To get the full benefits, you need to commit to a dedicated practice time of 30 to 40 minutes per day, four days a week. Most students find this very easy to achieve. If you’re not used to setting aside time to specifically practice, without any distractions, we’ll discuss this a little on our 1-on-1 call.

What about gear?

You need access to a drum kit – either acoustic or electric. You’ll also need to record simple videos with audio – your mobile phone will be absolutely fine for this (unless it was made in 1999…). If you have anything more advanced than this to record video and audio, that’s a bonus.

What exactly is included?

  • Personalised practice routine, that will evolve as you progress over the 12 weeks
  • Weekly 1-on-1 video calls to address any issues and help you with direct feedback
  • A direct message with Jay through the JPDL Discord – a great way to ask for quick feedback and advice
  • Lifetime access to all of the lessons and courses I publish on this website

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? – We’ll discuss these options as you approach the end of the 12-weeks.

Can I just sign up for a few 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.

I don’t think I need a video call every week – can I still do this? – Absolutely! You’ll be able to Direct Message me through the JPDL Discord server with any questions week to week. Video calls are optional although I do recommend we do them.

Ok, I’m interested. What happens next?

Before taking on any students, I insist on a free 1-on-1 call. This is an opportunity for us to meet and for you to tell me what you’d like to improve about your playing. It’s also a chance for you to get a great feel for how this works before parting with any money.
