Skype Lessons

No matter where you are located on “planet drum” – you can also study online with me, for instance via SKYPE. All you need is a webcam, the free-of-charge SKYPE software and a solid internet connection. Especially with the drastic developments around Corona, this way of teaching has become an essential aspect for students and educators worldwide: People from Germany, other EU countries, the US, Canada or the Far East are already using this possibility. I am also happy to assist with technical advice concerning the set-up for your online lessons / teaching routine.  It is also possible to arrange for SKYPE masterclasses / group lessons at your school. Visit www.skype.com and add me to your list of contacts (search for “hesslerc”). Payment will be arranged through PayPal.

Claus is without a doubt THE reference in drumming today. What makes him really special are his amazing talent as a drummer/performer combined with his skills as a teacher. His teaching style his well organized, result oriented, effective, clear, fun and modern. I must say that studying on Skype with him has been a very positive experience. I am impressed with his methods and by his understanding of technologies. The quality of the lessons is impressive, if you have never taken a lesson with Claus I highly recommend him. Claus is the best!

I remember when I contacted Claus for the first time and received a really nice feedback from him in which I realized he was a great person, very interested in spreading his wisdom about music and drums. Claus teaches you with no fear to embrace new challenges. The open handed way of playing drums gave me tools to make my weaker side stronger, consequently making it a more important part of my drumming. I can find no disadvantages to this technique. I find only growth as a drummer.
