I'm having some trouble finding a local teacher because my schedule sucks. Ive found a very qualified teacher but hes super booked up and i just cant make his available times work...that may change in the future but I'm wondering, for the time being, about taking lessons via Skype? Has anyone gone this route? Any really good teachers I should consider?

It's this or maybe I give a local music store a whirl, but I've met their guitar instructors, and frankly, was underwhelmed. I don't hold high hopes for their other instructors.

Most are getting no into this now. Chad Wackerman does it, even Gary Chaffee is doing it now.

It depends on what you're looking for.

I had problems finding a good teacher where I live so I went ahead and now I take Skype lessons from Bill Bachman, and I think it's great. Of course it would be even better in person but between Skype lessons with a great teacher vs traditional lessons with a not so great teacher it's a simple choice!

I would say it depends. If it's purely technique which is my case then it's more than fine, but I wouldn't want one for drumset.

My teacher is Christiaan Oyens and he teaches the Murray Spivack technique which is the same as Chad Wackerman
