Thank you for being here with me. This tier is the equivalent of buying me a coffee every month because you just like supporting me.

I am happy to have your support!
As a bonus treat: your name will automatically be added to a raffle taking place four times a year where you can win an online (or in person) one-on-one drum lesson! This lesson is transferable to others, so if you don't need it, you can gift it to somebody you like!

Cymbal

$51
per month
Got your sticks, snare and cymbals, my precious Cymbals? Looks like you’re serious about this.

I am so excited to embark on this journey with you! Thank you for joining me.
With this tier, you get a one-on-one drum lesson with me each month as your ongoing drum teacher and mentor. That means we can either drum together in a standard drum lesson or have a conversation about how you could progress as a drummer, as a musician, with your band and musical career in general, or even just how to get maximum fun out of the drums. We can chat about problems you are facing and try to find solutions for them! About stage fright, life on tour, post project blues, motivation or focus problems, tuning drums, finding the right equipment, stretch exercises... You name it, and we'll work it out together!
Your monthly lesson with me will last 40 minutes and will take place online via skype. (In-person lesson possible, too, if we're in the same location.)
Please join my Drummy World on Discord, too! There you'll have the possibility to ask me anything drum or music related, any time and I will respond within 24 hours whenever possible!
I appreciate you being here with me, so much!

I will send you a personal video message after you've signed up!

About Rahel

Hey!
My name is Rahel and I am a professional drummer and drum teacher based in Berlin (and sometimes Switzerland). You might also know me as Rah Fookinhell, the drummess of Feline & Strange and The Erinyes. Welcome to my Patreon, friend. I am so happy you found your way here and look forward to the journey we are about to take together!



It's said that 'Life is a learning lesson' and so is being a musician! And so after 15 years of playing the drums, even for me there are still a million things to learn and improve on. With this in mind, while I am offering myself as your teacher and mentor here, we will also be fellow students, even if our levels might be different.
"I teach what I most need to learn and I am my worst student"
(writing on a wall in some US university)

I hope to teach you how to teach yourself in your own way and at your own speed in order to offer something to every level of drummer, beginners and advanced, professionals and hobbyists! Every month we will focus on one certain area of drumming and I'll give you advice on how to improve in this area and invite you to participate in a fun challenge with me as we improve together!

By supporting me, you also help me to keep doing what I love doing! Working remotely, playing the drums and working together with my fantastic bands.

In some of my videos, we will talk about the technical stuff. We can talk about finding the right equipment and how to tune your instrument. We will also look into setting goals and establishing a practice routine. I can help you figure out what you need to work on, how to work in a focused way and I can also give you advice on overcoming motivational lows - the messy brain stuff! All of this is part of being a drummer, a musician, an artist and a human being.

If you're looking for a teacher or mentor, I recommend you become a Cymbal - the highest tier patron. That way I can really focus on YOUR needs and we can establish a long-term training plan together!

As a Snare - the middle tier - you will have access to the backlog of all the monthly videos and whatever other teaching materials I make available on Patreon and, of course, to all my future postings as well.

All my patrons will have regular opportunities to ask me questions or make requests on future topics and I will always reply to you. I plan to adjust the material I post to the needs of my Patrons, so communication is key! For that matter, I recommend you join my Discord server. You'll receive the invitation link after sign-up.

Sticks and Snare patrons will automatically be included in a raffle taking place every three months, where you can win a one-on-one online session! (If you are not interested in using it yourself, it can make a great gift for a friend or family member).
Discounts on lessons are available, too.

Sometimes I will also throw fun videos at you - me covering songs, or drumming on weird things, playing for cow audiences... I promise little light-hearted treats for everybody, too, because we all need it!

In my patreon-only posts that all tiers have access to, I will share my own experiences with you. Adventures with my bands, my own learning progress, joys and struggles, good days and bad days, because together we can make the bad ones better.
Positivity through drumming!
