FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions)

Why learn Jazz drumming?

Jazz drumming coordination, musicianship and varied styles of playing make it a powerful foundation for any drummer.

I've always said, if you learn Jazz drumming, everything else is a piece of cake. It's also incredibly FUN!

There is great freedom in Jazz drumming to interact and respond to the music. Creativity is valued more beat making.

What can you offer that I can't get at other online drum schools or lessons?

Learning Jazz drumming technique is only 50% of the skill needed to play brushes and Jazz drums successfully on the bandstand. The other 50% is knowing how to connect that technique to the music.

Many online drumming courses stop at learning drum fills and grooves. Over 300 lessons in my Jazz drumming courses will help you learn those skills and use them in real musical situations. Connecting your drumming to real music and real musicians is essential for success.

Can I watch the course videos on my phone?

Yes! You can use any web browser on your iPhone or Android mobile device and tablet to easily play course videos and track your progress.

In addition to your mobile devices, you can enjoy lessons on your laptop or desktop computers.

Where should I start?

If you're new to drumming and Jazz drumming, I recommend starting with the Beginner Drum Lessons Pack. You'll learn the essentials for Jazz drumming and play fun rhythmic accents between your snare drum and bass drum.

Next I suggest enrolling in the Jazz Drumming Solos and Fills Pack. Here, you'll play smooth and musical drum fills and solos around the drum kit.

To round things out, you'll really supercharge your Jazz drumming independence and musicianship in my Drum Lessons Power Pack.

There are other courses like my Brazilian Drumming and Secrets of Jazz Drumming and Jazz Funk Drumming Courses that will further expand your skills.

To help you improve your Jazz Drumming skills quickly, I also recommend enrolling in my Backing Tracks For Drums. These are real musicians playing real music that will get you swinging like a pro.

Should I follow the lessons sequentially?

My Jazz drumming courses are designed to move from one lesson to the next. I encourage you not to jump around.

There may be concepts or specific skills you hadn't thought of or learned, so moving sequentially will ensure that you cover everything.

Yes, absolutely! At Jazz Drum School we have our own messaging system. Send me a message anytime with questions about your Jazz drumming or the courses and I'll be happy to help!

Is there a trial period?

Yes, for subscription plans, your first day is on me!  Try Jazz Drum School for a day for free and if you cancel within that period, your credit card won't be charged. Lifetime course purchases do not have trial periods. 

If you have any questions, comments or concerns about your courses, please feel free to contact me above. I will work hard to make things right for you. Thanks so much in advance for your understanding.

Are there refunds?

Due to the large number of downloads in each course, we do not offer refunds.

If you are on the Monthly, 6-Month or Annual plan, you can cancel at any time.  You will then have access to your courses until the date that your current subscription expires. 

If you chose the One-Time payment option, there is no course expiration date. 

How do I access my courses?

After your purchase is complete, you will be directed to your login/start page. Scroll down and you will see all of the courses you have enrolled in.

Can I pay in my currency?

All prices at Jazz Drum School are in US Dollars however, most credit cards will allow you to purchase your courses in multiple currencies.

Jazz Drum School uses Stripe and PayPal for secure online payments. After your purchase is complete, you will be directed to your login/start page.

Why do I have to confirm my payment?

If you are getting a failed payment message on the payment page, most the time, there is a simple fix for this issue.

Jazz Drum School is located in Japan and from time-to-time, drummers will need to approve an international credit card transaction to enroll in the School.  If you receive an email or text message from your bank, please approve it within their time limit and you'll usually be enrolled automatically without a problem. 

Jazz Drum School accepts both Stripe and PayPal credit card payments. If one payment system doesn't work, you can also try using the other. Rest assured, all of your financial transactions and information are 100% safe and secure through either of these trusted payment processors.

I apologize for the temporary inconvenience that this may cause. This is a part of your bank's automated fraud protection system.  If you continue to have issues making payments, please feel free to contact me directly at vonbaron@jazzdrumschool.com and I'll be happy to help you.
