Honestly i don't agree with that... I tried a personal teacher and got more out of drumeo.. They have weekly student reviews where you can send in a video of you playing to see what areas or techniques you need to focus on cleaning up/improving. They will make personalized lesson plans so you aren't just going blindly along. And answer any questions or give help on any subject. Also.. 1200+ lessons on almost any genre from beginner to pretty much pro level. I did not see any single facet that a personal teacher could help me over that. And being there 24/7 means that for people like me (old with a shit memory) it is there anytime for me to practice with and get refreshed And it's super cheap..I've checked out material from both Drumeo and Mike Johnston, and they are both good. I've purchased a few modules from Mike, and they were excellent.
That said, for a novice these sites are not as good, by a long shot, as getting a teacher for one-on-one lessons. It's just a different level that can't be duplicated online, especially in your early years of technique building.
It may be, I don't know. I don't recommend Drumeo products for anyone who wants to actually learn how to play. If you just want to fool around with the drums a little bit, and never do anything but practice the little "lessons" they give you, I'd say go for it-- I'm sure there's plenty there to be sort-of entertained with for awhile.I am a novice and am looking to dive into a good lesson system.
Do any of you recommend the Drumeo website/Edge membership?
It looks to be pretty enjoyable.
I would not call Drumeo instruction "the right way" to learn those things.I am looking to learn the RIGHT way by learning to read transcription, etc.
