1-2-1 Lessons

If you want my help getting your playing together on a 1-2-1 level, You can book a session with me online.
Here's how it works...



Initially we book one session. It's important that we both enjoy working with each other. I won't hold back, but it will be useful and I'll give you lots of work to do!  Each lesson should keep you very busy for many months.  A free download of one of my two instructional videos is included with the first lesson.

You'll need a computer with a webcam, a good internet connection and a Skype account (if you haven't got one, it's free). 

Billy Ward is such an inspiring musician. His deep mastery of the instrument serves an extremely high level of intuitive musicianship that always sees the big picture. His practice playing concept is such a great approach for growing on the instrument and developing your own voice along the way. Very musical, fun and effective for any musician. Thank you Billy!
— Shawn Pelton (Saturday Night Live, Sessions)


Online lessons will be a mix of playing and talking. Or... it could mainly be more conversational. It depends on what you need. If you have specific challenges you'd like me to look at, you can provide me with a short video to check out prior to the lesson. so we aren't relying on the speed of the connection on the call.

Assuming we have no connectivity issues, I will upload a recording of our lesson for you to keep. This will enable you to stay in the moment with me on your session.

Two of the most important lessons I’ve had in my drumming life have been with Billy. He has such a deep understanding of how groove, time and musical creativity work, and most importantly knows how to share it with others. I’m still working on the concepts Billy gave me fifteen years ago!
