Learn How to Play the Doumbek via Skype or ooVoo | Doumbek Lessons

Online music course (via Skype for example) is a new method of teaching by using video chat facility. While some people may think that Skype lessons do not work, our experience shows online lessons are effective enough and much more, they are comfortable. We invite you to see what our students say:

Leo Shimizu (Boston/Tokyo):

I’ve been taking Peyman’s online Tombak and Ghaval lessons since April 2011. Before starting our lessons, I was not sure if Skype lessons work, but now I have understood that this way of teaching totally works. He always shows me the rhythmic and finger patterns very slowly and explains clearly. His teaching is well-organized and also he improvises in a good way during the class. In my opinion, Peyman is a great teacher and drummer.
