Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Drum Channel?

    Drum Channel was designed by Don Lombardi, the founder of Drum Workshop, DW Drums. Knowing many of the best drummers and teachers of all time, he wanted to create an online vault of their information so young drummers could learn from the best. Don is the CEO and is actively involved with Drum Channel.

  • What if I have never played before?

    We have courses that start you out from the very beginning. And they will start you out correctly so you get the most out of your practice. Choosing where to start is easy once you are in the DC Academy.

  • What if I want to become a pro?

    The DC Academy has courses with all the information you need. Our legendary instructors have taught many of these courses in universities for years. You can choose from intermediate to advanced. How good you get depends on how much you practice. As we say, “Your future is in your hands.”

  • Can I just learn on YouTube?

    Every time you hear a drummer play, you may learn something. But there is no substitute for great instruction. On Drum Channel, we teach you the How, What, and Why of playing. So, you get the skills and knowledge to learn from every drummer you hear and be able to play it.

  • How do Playalongs work?

    We have playlalongs with many courses so you can try out what you have just learned.  We also have a library of Classic songs that we add to every week with lessons and a library of educational playalongs that prepare you to play any song. They are Drums Hot and Drumless, and you can adjust the speed.

  • What if I have limited practice time?

    Don’t worry, most of our members are just like you. They work during the day and want to play for fun when they can. There are courses that will get you better little by little, and a DC instructor will suggest them to you after you sign up.

  • I am taking private lessons. Do I need Drum Channel?

    Many private teachers include Drum Channel lessons and the DC Method in their curriculum. You can also easily choose lessons at your skill level to supplement what you are working on. We always encourage private instruction and DC when possible.

  • What is DC Entertainment?

    Drum Channel is about Education in the DC Academy, and Entertainment is where you will learn by listening to amazing performances and great interviews. It is an opportunity to hang out with the best.

  • Can the DC metronome make you go faster?

    Yes, the practice assist patented feature increases the speed after a period of time.  It is factory set to 120 BPM for 5 minutes, then 123 for 5 minutes, then 126 for 5 minutes.  Follow the easy instructions to put it on your phone, pick a rudiment, and with 15 minutes a day, you will see amazing success.

  • How can I get help?

    We are here to help. You can use the Feedback feature to send in a video showing us what you are doing. We can also arrange a private online lesson at an additional cost. Many members take regular lessons or, from time to time, just to get a “check-up.”
