"The goal at IMT is to provide top quality music instruction to people all around the globe" says CEO Ryan Fox. The company is launching initially as a live streaming drum lessons website only, but they have plans to offer guitar, bass, voice and piano lessons in the future. The drum lessons are taught by professional drummer Dave Rollans twice a week. He teaches classes for beginner students and intermediate/advanced students on both days. The lessons are 30 minutes long with a five minute Q and A at the end of each session. Students can ask Dave questions during the lesson and at the end during the Q and A, via the chat feature. If students can't make the live lessons they can watch them on their own time in the archives. They archive the last 4 lessons at a time per skill level, which leaves students plenty of material to work on. If you have never played the drums in your life, the company has provided 8 essential pre-recorded videos from their vault, to get any beginner started and up to speed for the live beginner lessons. These videos include lessons on basic drum beats, technique, how to read drum notation, and other essential skills that every beginner needs.
The cost of a subscription is $20 a month which averages out to be about 8 thirty minute lessons per month, per skill level. http://www.interactivemusicteacher.com also has a pre-recorded video section which includes 49 videos taught by Dave Rollans which focus on technique, rudiments, and how to play various styles of music from Punk to Mozambique. Each lesson includes on screen drum notation so students can make the connection between what Dave is playing and what is written in the music.
Dave Rollans is an experienced studio musician from San Diego Ca. He has studied from some heavy hitters in the drum world. Jeff Hamilton, Russ Miller, Dave Weckl, Rick Latham, are some of the notable instructors that Rollans has studied from. Rollans also studied in Brazil for a few years which has influenced his style as a player and as an instructor. You can get accustomed to Dave's teaching style by visiting the website's blog.
