EP 85 - The History of Drum Lessons with Mike Johnston

Mike takes us back to the advent of the drum set and how people would learn to play in the early 1900's and how things have and haven't changed over the years. We go through each advancement in education including face to face lessons, lessons on records (LP's), drum books with CD's, drum tapes and DVD's, online lessons, and what the future holds for the world of drum lessons.

Mike Johnston is a leader in the world of online drum lessons and has a contagious passion for education. Check out everything Mike is doing at his website:
