Finally, the official RTD site has been launched. This has been a long process, but I hope the final product reflects the work that went into the look, feel, and function of this site. This site’s objectives are to document the building of the RTD studio (Sound Proofing & Sound Treating), provide advice and promote discussion on all things drumming (e.g., gear), and advertise the up-and-coming lessons: starting in 2013, beginners to intermediate, followed by advanced lessons as time permits. The direction of the content will be driven by your feedback/comments/questions/suggestions, and of course, by anything I feel like posting… 😉
A month or so ago, I conducted a beta-test of this site, and I wanted to thank everyone who viewed, commented, and participated constructively to this process–your feedback was invaluable, and most of it was incorporated into this version of the site. Thank you! 🙂
As a result of some consistent feedback from the beta-test, I’ve decided that the first round of lessons will be reserved for the PG-13 crowd and up–I tried to make this site, the Youtube Channel, Fan Page, Twitter, and Instagram accounts as “family friendly” as possible, but at the end of the day, it can only be as friendly as Rock ‘n’ Roll is…the music I grew up with and like, which reflects my style of playing (late 70s/early 80s Rock, Metal, adult contemporary), is just sometimes NSFW (as they say)–a lot of what I do, and my method of teaching involves getting students to play along as quickly as possible with songs relevant to their playing which demonstrate what they’ve just learned and need to practice. Practice songs can range from Toto to Testament, from Sade to Slayer, and I need to make my focus the music and the relevant beats and not the lyrics and/or potentially offensive album covers or song titles. Sorry. I hope you understand and thank you in advance.
By the way, to parents of young ones, I’d still be happy to hear from you, and I will give you as much advice as you need, and also recommend some great teachers/schools of music who would be more than happy to teach your budding little rockstar…
So, all that being said, here’s the site, enjoy. Your comments, questions, and suggestions, are certainly welcome, and your patience is greatly appreciated as this site grows and starts to find its voice, which may take some time and certainly there will be mistakes along the way.
