Yeah. Different worlds.What would an 8 year old be doing with SKYPE, hahaha! (I think, anyway, you can do that, teach how to hold the sticks to an 8 year old child through SKYPE).
Whatever, I think "Out Of Warranty" is a little bit older than that...
Best regards to Norway! (Jon Christensen, etc.)
P.S.: Actually I´m teaching a 7 year old kid Kojo Roney licks because is his idol (he learned about him from me).
I work mostly with teenagers who dig Mike and Lars with big holes in their basic training, so the first period is pretty much opening their eyes and ears to different types of music and get them motivated to and enjoy the benefits of solid fundamenal skills. Also just understanding what it's all about in a group setting.
Some young kids too of course, with the main challenge being that these teenagers are the closest thing they have to any sort of inspiration.
I might contact you for some Skype lessons myself at some point. I'm great at teaching kids and have a very wide perspective there, but there are lots of things I want to work on myself. The main reason why, along with papers that will increase work opportunities, I'm still considering a jazz master program at my ripe old age.
So, kick drum...or...bass drum? I'll tell you what. If it's 18" or less, it's a FOOT TOM.
