Cost and Requirements for Lessons

Each individual lesson with Tate will cost $20 for a half hour, and $30

for a full hour. Payments for lessons will be accepted through either 

PayPal or Venmo. It is ultimately up to the student to decide the length of their lessons, but it is recommended that if you are interested in multiple/weekly lessons, to start with half hour lessons, and if you are signing up for a single lesson to do an hour so Tate can cover more with you in one session. Make sure you are clear about how long you'd like your lessons to be when inquiring with Tate.

By signing up for online lessons, you must have a mobile device, whether it be a smartphone, laptop, or tablet that is able to run the Zoom meeting system effectively. If you have an Apple device and would rather use the FaceTime application, it can also be used for Tate to teach lessons. Please also make sure that you have a way to position your device's camera so that both your hands are visible while you're playing. Although it is recommended, you do not have to have external microphones hooked up to your device for sound quality while you're playing.

In addition to the electronic requirements that allow online lessons to run smoothly, please make sure that you have your drum kit set up and ready to go so that it is comfortable for you (if you'd like to work on your kit set up during a lesson, be prepared to move some things around if needed). You should also have a practice pad ready that you can sit on the top of a drum or on a separate stand, along with a music stand incase you have to look at a book or some sheet music (although there are no requirements for books or sheet music for your first lesson).
