★ Q: What is the difference between FRAME DRUM 101 and FRAME DRUM 202?

A: Both programs feature an incredibly rich curriculum and deeply transformative experience for students. The difference is just the level.

  • FRAME DRUM 101:
  • For the beginner, or student with minimal playing experience
  • FRAME DRUM 202:
  • For the student who has had at least a year of playing experience.
  • BUNDLE PACKAGE: 101 & 202 combined (*Save $100 - best Academy price!)

★ Q: Is there really LIFETIME ACCESS to all of the program content?

A: Yes! My students have lifetime access to the full program(s) of their choice.

★ Q: What is the best drum to use for this program? Where do I purchase a drum? What is the difference b/w the drum heads?

A: I recommend a 16" as a good drum to play in all three styles that we will be learning in this program!

Special Gift: All students of the Academy receive a 10% a Cooperman Frame Drum! Discount code given after signup!


★ Q: How do I watch the instructional videos?

You will receive a video download each week starting the first week the program starts.

Videos are available on our easy -to-use website.. OR you can download the videos to your computer to watch on other devices.

★ Q: Do I have to follow along with the group? 

A: No! This is your journey. The programs are designed for you to go at your own pace. You may find it more fun/interactive to go with the group, or better to learn/practice in your own time.

★ Q: Do I need any prior music or drumming experience to participate?

A: Not at all! Total beginners are warmly welcome. Many of my amazing graduates began their musical journeys through the Frame Drum 101 program :o)

★ Q: I have limited computer skills - will I be able to follow your programs?

A: Thanks to some clever tools and a lot of planning and thought, my programs are VERY easy to use. I’ve designed them to be as simple and user-friendly as possible. Even the biggest technophobe will be a whizz before long!

★ Q: How much time do I need to devote to learning?

A: It really depends on your dedication, as well as your own musical goals and schedule. 

Most students report spending between 20 minutes-2 hours on drumming each week, but since you set the pace, you can follow along as the videos are downloaded or in your own time. 

★ Q: After I finish the program, what do I do with my new-found drumming skills?

A: Ahh… that is why I have created slots in Modules 1-3 that are dedicated composition weeks, where we learn wonderful drum pieces that incorporate the techniques students just learned. You can use these to play with others, or even teach a workshop or perform.

★ Q: What are the benefits of learning online with The Frame Drum Academy?

A: There are SO MANY benefits I don’t even know where to begin! But just for starters, you get lifetime access, bonuses, learning at your own pace, 24/7 support and encouragement, new friends across the globe and incredible savings (a fraction of the cost of college courses/private lessons). Oh, and a 10% discount on a Cooperman drum. Also, smiles guaranteed :o)


★ Q: May I change program levels?

If you find yourself in a program that is either too easy for you, or too hard, it is possible to switch.

For example, if you are in Frame Drum 202, and realized that it's too advanced for you, it is okay to switch to the Frame Drum 101 Program. The switch must be done within the first module!!

★ Q: When will this training be offered again?

A: Currently, The Frame Drum Academy is open for enrollment just once a year, and I can’t confirm the date, pricing or format for the 2021 program. Time to start your music journey now!
