My Skype Studio - for ease of communication - I use practice pad drum set and snare drum pads!
Opinion: Skype is best suited to pad work and drum-set pad kits for discussing concepts, exchanging ideas and demonstration.
Question: How many drummers, seriously interested to learn drum set as an instrument have mics, mixer and video set up on their kits for Skype? And...if it’s more for the teacher; than the student?
Answer: A respected teacher once said: "Also, do not expect me to play during your lesson. I can demonstrate concepts that need demonstrating, but due to the questionable teaching methods of some “teachers”, there are students who think they are going to watch me solo for an hour (If you ever take a lesson where the teacher plays more than 5 minutes of your hour, then you didn’t take a lesson, you watched a drum clinic). No, no, no- YOU need to do the playing, and play a lot. I listen, and listen a lot. Then, we’ll discuss- we’ll fix- we’ll review, I’ll demonstrate, if needed, and then you’ll play more. One goal is that YOU are going to be doing a lot of drumming in my studio and, really, that’s what it’s about!"
The whole live mics, mixer, drum set etc. concept on Skype can easily get out of hand and end up as a “dog and pony” show. Where you don't learn anything! n other words, just for show, maybe a way for some who don't know "how" to teach to use as an added distraction, and one more reason to charge more? You decide.
