The Napa, Calif.-based music education company ArtistWorks will premiere the ArtistWorks Drum Academy (ADA) with the debut of online schools from drummers legend Billy Cobham and Thomas Lang. Launching on December 8th, both the Billy Cobham Drum School (BCDS) and the Thomas Lang Drum School (TLDS) will utilize ArtistWorks’ patent-pending video technology, allowing for two-way video exchange and interactive instruction to elevate online instruction.
The ArtistWorks online visual education format allows musicians to teach students all over the world by presenting their full method in a series of high-quality video lessons online. Subscribing students work through the lessons and use simple webcams to submit videos to their teacher for critique and guidance. The Artists easily review and respond to student videos on their own time using the ArtistWorks Video Management System. Both student video and artist response are paired together online as a “Video Exchange” for the entire community to learn from.
