All you need is a device for a video call. It can be a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop. As for the video chat platform we can use your choice of FaceTime, Facebook video chat, Zoom, WhatsApp video chat, or Instagram video chat.
I use an electric drum set to demonstrate the patterns for them to see, to play call-and-response games, and to jam along with them to their favorite songs. I also use an electric keyboard to teach students how to jam with other musicians.
Together we create an iTunes playlist along with a YouTube playlist, so that they get to learn the beats to their favorite songs and can watch videos of drummers playing their favorite songs.
I text/email my students their sheet music, so that they can print it out or read it from their screen.
I also show them the music on my end to walk them through it note for note.
The delay game challenges students to compensate for the delay by starting their pattern a beat early. This gets more difficult as the tempo increases because it might be necessary to start 2 beats early.
